Earlier this month, a few paparazzi photos of Johnny Depp as Barnabas Collins were leaked on the internet. Depp was shown wearing big glasses and had his face painted a ghostly white. The image made a lot of people cringe as Tim Burton and Depp were accused of ruining the classic look of Barnabas Collins. Well, the first official photo of the Dark Shadows cast has been released and Johnny Depp doesn’t look nearly as strange as he did in the leaked photos.
In fact, Burton and Depp don’t seem to deviate too much from Jonathan Fridd’s original Barnabas Collins costume. Here’s a picture of the original cast.
