Kathryn Leigh Scott who played Maggie Evans in the original television show says that she was surprised that Helena Bonham Carter would disparage her soap opera. Helena in a recent interview had this to say about Dark Shadows, "a really bad, hilariously bad soap opera."

Kathryn wrote a letter to the Dark Shadows News Page:"Lara Parker (Angelique) and I, who both play cameos in the new Dark Shadows film, are surprised by Helena Bonham Carter's comments because they do not at all reflect our wonderful conversation together on the set. She was eager to hear about Grayson Hall, who played Dr. Julia Hoffman, and we were only too happy to tell her about our old friend."

"Helena and Michelle Pfeiffer (Elizabeth Collins Stoddard) were both into watching the original episodes and we all laughed about the famous bloopers, which were indeed 'hilariously bad'... However, we take pride in the original series, bloopers and all. Our budget for a single episode of the series wouldn't pay for a tea break on the set of the new film, Yet our series has become an enduring classic for over 45 years!"

And Kathryn was through, as Helena Bonham Carter also said that the movie would be a hard sell. Kathryn disagreed with that view as well, stating, "The new movie should be an easy sell to the legions of fans who ran home from school to watch the original and the multitudes of young new fans drawn to us each year."

Dark Shadows also stars Helena Bonham-Carter, Michelle Pfeiffer, Eva Green, Chloe Moretz and Jackie Earle Haley and will be with us May 2012.
