Personal Quote:

"I love to play horror for horror's sake. Inner horror...I mean I never thought I created fear with the fang business of "Barnabus". I always felt foolish doing that part of it. The horror part I like was 'the lie'" -- Jonathan Frid, on his Dark Shadows (1966) character. See more »

Trivia:

Working with former Dark Shadows (1966) costar Marie Wallace, Jonathan made his directorial debut in February 1993, with the play "Lion in Winter" at the Georgia College Theatre in Milledgeville, Georgia. Marie starred as Eleanor of Aquitaine. See more »
