Louis Edmonds is best known for his work as character Roger Collins in the wildly popular daytime gothic drama "Dark Shadows" which ran from 1967-71. Dark Shadows had an ensemble cast who went back in forth in time from the 18th century to the 17th century more than once. Since this was an ensemble cast, each actor/actress played roles from their current lives and those of their ancestors. Since this was a gothic drama, the series included "normal" people, and those that were under spells that turned them into vampires, werewolves, witches, and ghosts just to name a few. In addition to the role of Roger Collins, Edmonds also played his father, grandfather, and great grandfather.
