Young Barnabas actor Thomas McDonell has spoken again about his Dark Shadows role, this time in an interview with website JustJared: "It's an idea that Tim Burton has had for a long time, because he's a big fan of the original series. I think the movie he's going to make is going to make you aware of the original... self aware?"

Her previous credits include Clash of the Titans and the upcoming X-Men: First Class. Ailsa Lawson is listed as a prosthetic make-up trainee. Her other work includes the Sherlock Holmes sequel A Game of Shadows.
