Picture of the Week: Diagnosis Grayson

To mark the birthday of Grayson Hall (Dr. Julia Hoffman), here's a shot of her hamming it up between scenes on set for House of Dark Shadows in 1970. In the background are Don Briscoe as Todd Blake and Terry Crawford cameoing as a nurse.

As a seasoned film actress, Grayson educated the younger members of the cast as they made the transition from television to the big screen. "Grayson Hall... was our mentor," Lara Parker recalled in the Dark Shadows Movie Book, "patiently explaining to those of us completely ignorant in these matters, that intense facial expressions would be horrifying projected 20 feet high on the big screen."

Probably my second favorite actor on the show!! And, I believe, may be the one who set the record of "most appearances" - something like 832 episodes. Does anybody know if another cast member beat that number??
