I'll be there Charles--I've been going to the Fests with my friend Sue on both coasts for at least five years now. I don't think you know me, but I know who you are from your interactions with the cast--and they all know you! Plus...they all depend on your extensive knowledge of the storylines to answer the questions that they can't answer! So, it would be virtually impossible for anyone to NOT know who Charles Ellis is! LOL! I'll make sure to say hello at some point! I'm one of the young guys, pushing an older lady in a wheelchair (Sue). ~Tracy

Yesterday we got through 578, the episode where Carolyn Stoddard was played by Diana Walker. For in impromptu drop-in like that, I thought that both the casting director and Ms. Walker did a credible job.

 

But it also underscores just how much Nancy Barrett owned that role. Getting to see someone else attempt it really brings that home.

 

And I wanted to add that the whole subplot of Julia being under the influence of Tom Jennings came out of left field for me. That must have taken place at a time when I didn't have access to audio tapes nor friends taping the episodes for me. I hadn't seen it coming and was totally surprised by it. It's nice when that kind of thing happens as it raises the appreciation level of the series.

Harry,

I would be very hard-pressed to name my all-time favorite actor / actress from the original Dark Shadows, but Nancy Barrett is certainly among my top three.  You are right when you say she owned that role.

Remarkable....absolutely remarkable to the actors and actresses that made the entire 1966-1971 DS run. People talk about and rightly so about the remarkable effort by Janssen in his tireless efforts as probably the most overworked TV prime time actor for the four years that he put in for "The Fugitive"....the DS crew deserve a similar honor for their tireless efforts as well (as I guess any of the long term Soap Opera actors and actresses) but DS gets the nod in the SO category given the many different characters the regular cast played out over that time.

Very few could do convincing "angst" like Nancy Barrett.
