This is a 552 page book looking at the major actors and actresses on Dark Shadows. It doesn't neglect the ones who appeared only for short times, though. The book even includes photos and two appendices.

Barnabas & Company is an extremely well researched book that gives you the low down on every cast member and actor that appeared in the classic soap opera 'Dark Shadows'. The author has taken great care and love putting this together and has updated his research so all the actors are up to date which includes what they are doing in 2012.

He even painstakingly researched the actors who may have appeared in only one episodes which makes this book a real treat. If you are Dark Shadows fan, then this
Amazingly complete

A terrific and complete list of bios of Dark Shadows actors. With intensive background on each actor. Fun for any fan and baby boomer.
