Jonathan Frid featured in SAG awards video


Jonathan Frid is among the actors featured in this year's Screen Actors Guild Awards video looking back on the actors and actresses who passed away during the last year. It's been a pleasant surprise to see Frid featured in two of these videos so far, not to mention several print retrospectives. With the exception of his reprisal of Barnabas Collins in the Big Finish audio drama THE NIGHT WHISPERS, Frid hadn't worked in almost forty years, so it's amazing that a community with such a short memory is still willing to hold him up as an example to other actors. It's actually pretty sweet that they used a clip from the DARK SHADOWS television series in the video, and not a clip from the "more legitimate" HOUSE OF DARK SHADOWS feature film.

Conrad Bain, who appeared in four episodes of DARK SHADOWS, also appears in the video below.

Miss you Mr. Frid rip.

Awesome! Now I nearly expect the Oscars to follow suit. Please don't disappoint me...

Awesome & well deserved, though I beg to differ that he didn't work for 40 years--he appeared on Broadway and on tour in Arsenic & Old Lace, directed Marie Wallace in a production of The Lion in Winter, and did hundreds of one man shows.
Just sayin......

Nice to see him featured. But anyone who knows anything about Frid knows he would have *hated* the scene they used, lol!
