~ Jonathan Frid ( aka Barnabas Collins ~
( Acrostic/ Biography poem )


Jonathan Frid,is a great actor,and a beautiful man too.
O-n Dark Shadows, he was just awesome!He brought a lot of class to the show.
N-ative from Hamilton,Ontario,Canada.He was trained as a Shakeaspean actor.
A-s he started working in Dark Shadows,he became very famous playing
T-he very reluctant and guilt-ridden vampire,Barnabas Collins.
H-e joined the Canadian Royal Navy when young and worked in the theater after University.
A-nd as it goes,no one can ever replace him as B.C. He's the real deal!
N-eedless to say, no one can play the character of Barnabas Collins, like he did.

F-or Jonathan Frid is one of his kind in every way.And he's a true gent too.
R-etired now he resides in Canada,his hometown.He's done many fine audio recordings.
I-f truth be told, he'll always be the best,the only Barnabas Collins
D-ark Shadows,is one of the greatest t.v. show ever created.Its awesome.
