Back in 1966, Kathryn Leigh Scott was cast as Maggie Evans in ABC’s supernatural soap opera, Dark Shadows. She got to play several different roles over the course of the series and stayed with the show for most of its five year run.
Though Scott went on to act in numerous other television series, she certainly doesn’t shy away from her “dark” past. She’s remained active at Dark Shadows festivals and conventions, published and written books about the show, and has even authored a novel that’s an homage to the series.
Scott’s website describes Dark Passages as a “coming-of-age story encapsulating the romance and innocence of JFK’s Camelot era and the tumultuous ‘dark passages’ of Meg Harrison. Arriving in New York City to pursue acting, Meg is a beautiful ingenue who also happens to be a vampire. She joins the cast of the cult hit Dark Passages only to face her nemesis who is bent on destroying her and those she loves.”
