Wow. We have certainly lost some very important people in the retro entertainment circle this week. First we learned that we had lost the fantastic character actor, William Finley(Phantom of the Paradise, The Funhouse), and the next day it was announced that the “World’s Oldest Teenager” Dick Clark had also left us. Now we have word that Jonathan Frid(Dark Shadows), Barnabas Collins himself has passed on at age 87.
A huge thanks to Phil Nobile Jr. over at Badass Digest for the heads up on this sad bit of news. Make sure to visit Phil’s link to read about how Jonathan almost didn’t get the part for Dark Shadows and more interesting facts.
