|Some television shows pass into the realm of legend. "Dark Shadows, " the first and only "Gothic soap opera," certainly qualifies for that status, having spawned a tidal wave of books, feature films, documentaries, conventions, and an undying fan base that rivals those of "Star Wars" or "Rocky Horror Picture Show." In her first professional acting job, Kathryn Leigh Scott played four roles on the show, among them vampire Barnabas Collins''s doomed fiance Josette Du Pres and Collinsport Inn waitress Maggie Evans. On these two full-length compact discs, Scott presents an insider view of this pop culture phenomenon with memories of the fear and excitement of performing "live on tape" daily television -- complete with sets crashing down and mangled dialogue -- as well as witty anecdotes about her costars. This audiobook version is enhanced with original soundtrack music by composer Robert Cobert, including "Josette''s Theme," along with several previously unavailable selections.|
