Barnabas Collins - I'd rush home every day from high school to watch Dark Shadows. RIP Jonathan Frid.

I'm still watching Dark Shadows on DVD. He was a phenomenal actor. I like to think that, like Barnabas Collins, he'll be back again in a couple of hundred years.

Farewell Jonathan. No matter what Johnny Depp does with the character, you will always be the only Barnabas Collins for me.
