Jonathan Frid, best-known for his role as Barnabas Collins in Dark shadows (1967–1971), passed away on April 14. He was 87-years-old. His portrayal helped mainstream the 'sympathetic vampire'.
My condolences go out to his family and loved ones. In commemoration, I thought I'd share an interview from The Merv Griffin show, 27 March 1969, at the height of his success. Enjoy! And salut.
