Jonathan Frid Interview V

Jonathan Frid talks about the “bites”, particularly the best one in his opinion, in which he left the dentures off, relying on the power of suggestion. Frid insists that he took the role of Barnabas as seriously as Hamlet, but thinks some of the actors and even writers were taking camp liberties. He describes Barnabas as being from “good family”, healthy stock, sensible, intelligent, and passionate with one slight problem, not that different from an alcoholic. He had human values without any of the normal (for the time) conventions, which Frid feels made him a more believable figure, rather than a dry, dull character. He also talks about trying to avoid fans when getting off the set in a hurry and once being scolded by the mother of a fan.
