Jonathan Frid aka Barnabas Collins December 2, 1924 - April 13, 2012
Jonathan Frid thrilled television viewers in the 60s and 70s when he brought the first television soap opera vampire to life. Breaking new ground with a supernatural character, Jonathan Frid played a quirky, sexy vampire that entranced housewives across the country. According to IMDb, he appeared in a staggering 594 episodes between 1967 and 1971.
Passing away into the shadow realm at the age of 87, Jonathan Frid had just made a cameo appearance in Tim Burton's tongue in cheek film, Dark Shadows, based on the series of the same name. Johnny Depp will be playing the title role of Barnabas in the new film.
ClassBrain wishes the fond memories to his surviving family, friends, and fans, who remember him as fondly as we do.
