UPDATE: We're in the process of reviewing our previous podcasts and getting them reinstated in our archives. First up, this 2014 interview with Dark Shadows alumnus Sharon Smyth Lentz! When this episode was first published, Sharon was scheduled to attend MonsterCon in Greenville, S.C. a few weeks later. The convention proved to be the last for actress Arlene Martel, who played T'Pring on the original Star Trek. (She passed away the following month at the age of 78.)

I was also scheduled to attend and participate in a panel with Sharon at MonsterCon ... the day of the festival, though, my wife went into emergency labor and I found myself a father about six weeks earlier than expected. My son will be hearing this story for the rest of his life. "Did I ever tell you about the festival that I missed, Edgar?!"

Anyhoo, here't the podcast, as well as the original post from 2014.


Marie and Sharon.
Sharon Smyth Lentz joined the cast of Dark Shadows in June 1967, playing the ghost of Sarah Collins, the little sister of vampire Barnabas Collins. In this podcast, she talks about her experiences on the series, her decision to leave acting, and fields a few questions from online fans. It's a fun episode, and hosted by CHS contributor Marie Maginity.

Sharon will be among the former cast members participating in the annual Dark Shadows Festival this weekend, and will be appearing the weekend of July 18 in Greenville, S.C., at MonsterCon.
