Johnny Depp To Play Dark Shadows' Barnabas Collins in Much the Same Way Jonathan Frid Did

Johnny Depp is usually determined to bring his own take to characters -- Captain Jack Sparrow and Willy Wonka being examples -- but in the case of Dark Shadows and vampire Barnabas Collins, he believes he'll be leaning more on actor Jonathan Frid's portrayal in the original '60s soap opera.
"For me, even the conversations I’ve had with Tim, what Jonathan Frid did with that character and that classic look he created, I find it very difficult to stray very far from that," he told MTV News "I think it’s going to be somewhere in that arena, with maybe just a couple of different touches here and there. There’s something about this vampire coming back after 200 years into this modern world, with a touch of the poetic, with maybe a tendency to maybe wax a little poetic now and again. I have a good feeling about it. But Jonathan Frid’s Barnabas was so special."
