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:

Currently semi-retired, living in Ancaster, Ontario, not far from his birthplace of Hamilton and McMaster University where he was educated. Is continuing to attend Dark Shadows conventions each year, as long as his health lasts. He will turn 85 this year. See more »
