The image of the vampire was forever changed by “Dark Shadows,” a 1966-71 supernatural soap opera that aired on ABC. The man responsible for that change was Jonathan Frid, who brought heart and soul and the instincts of a Shakespearean actor to his portrayal of vampire Barnabas Collins.

Frid cut a pioneering pop-culture path in the 1960s. That path leads directly to the brooding, tormented vampires so popular today in “True Blood,” “Twilight” and “The Vampire Diaries.”
