2016 marks fifty years since DARK SHADOWS first aired on ABC, and ten years since Big Finish Productions began release of Collinsport audio adventures.
Recently Kathryn Leigh Scott, star of both the original TV show and the audios, joined me for a chat with audio range producers David Darlington and Joseph Lidster to discuss her thoughts on those last ten years.
Kathryn talks of the first Big Finish days in the studio stepping back into the shadows with her co-stars again, and of her most recent stories – how she took the lead in "Bloodlust" and how she got Mitch Ryan to come on board for the fiftieth audio adventure with the return of Burke Devlin in "…And Red All Over." She also looks back on her appearances in STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION and AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L D., and she remembers Lela Swift and Joel Crothers.
Davy and Joe take the opportunity to tell Kathryn who she’ll be playing in the Fiftieth Anniversary Dark Shadows play, "Blood & Fire," and tell us some exclusives about "Bloodline" and beyond…
