From Romantic Lead To Moody Menace

 from The Daily Review, October 9, 1966

Although I haven't always liked the characters that Louis Edmonds played on Dark Shadows I always felt that he was the best actor of the bunch. I suppose that Jonathan Frid, Thayer David and David Selby overtook him in the end, mainly because they had the better parts and appeared with more frequency, but Edmonds was one of the torch bearers from the original cast and once Mitchell Ryan was forced from the show he was the strongest supporting presence. His portrayal of Joshua Collins, Barnabas's father in the 1795 flashback episodes, was particularly poignant.
