Dark Shadows A Poem. She also appears in a cameo role in the new Warner Bros. So I think for someone 14 years old, who has no awareness of the original show, they will be be catapulted into the heart of the real Dark Shadows. Johnny Depp will become their Barnabas Collins. That's an interesting way of putting it.
How do you see Dark Shadows enduring beyond this film? There's no question that Dark Shadows is now iconic and I think that has a great deal to do with the fans, in collusion with the original actors. Because, were it not for our books and appearances at events over the years Rather than preserving it in aspic, we've created a legacy that's an ever-growing thing.
For you and the other actors making cameos, how did it feel to see a new cast playing your roles? It was a nice feeling. I created Josette , she created Angelique, and there have been others who stepped into those roles. One does feel a little proprietorial about it, but on the other hand one is fascinated by what another actress can bring to those roles. So we feel both territorial and kind of willing embrace a new interpretation. It will be very interesting to see what Eva Green brings to that role of Angelique.
We did the original Dark Shadows on a budget that wouldn't pay for a day or two of filming on this new production. They have so much more, by way of resources, and will use them. We have only what we originated, 45 years ago. Original creator Dan Curtis tried many times to remake Dark Shadows on a grand scale.
Do you think he would have approved of this version? Dan had — if you'll forgive the word — a very rigid interpretation of Dark Shadows and he always stayed within certain parameters. He wanted to produce his vision in a big budget way.
He was so excited about the primetime version — I think that gave him enormous satisfaction. Tim Burton's interpretation is going to be Tim Burton's interpretation, and I'm really looking forward to it. He's just an amazing film maker, and I can't envision anybody else but Johnny Depp taking on this iconic role. This content is published for the entertainment of our users only.
