DARK SHADOWS' Addison Powell Dead at Age 89

Addison Powell, 89, has passed away at his home in Vermont on November 8.

Powell was best known for playing the evil Dr. Lang, a mad scientist, on the ABC Daytime soap DARK SHADOWS as well as other characters including the ghost of Jeremiah Collins, one of Barnabas Collins' spooky relatives.

Born in Belmont, Mass. in 1921, Powell served in WW2 as a navigator in a B-17 bomber.

Returning stateside, he later graduated from Yale Drama School.

The Burlington Free Press reported that Addison was still thrilled to be receiving fan mail for his characters on Dark Shadows -- a show that has been off the air nearly 40 years!
