At a “Dark Shadows” panel at the San Diego Comic Con this past weekend, it was confirmed that four of the original cast members of the 60’s gothic soap opera will be making cameos in Tim Burton’s new film based on the property reports Bloody Disgusting.

Lara Parker (Angelique), Kathryn Leigh Scott (Maggie Evans and Josette du Pres), David Selby (Quentin Collins) and the one and only Jonathan Frid (Barnabas Collins) reportedly spent three days at Pinewood Studios during the filming of Burton’s ‘Shadows’. All four will be making cameos.

Jackie Earle Haley, Eva Green, Bella Heathcote, Michelle Pfeiffer, Helena Bonham Carter, Chloe Moretz and Jonny Lee Miller also star.
