SHADOWGRAM UPDATE # 436
 
-- ROBERT RODAN - GET WELL WISHES
-- CHRIS PENNOCK - GET WELL WISHES

 
***** ROBERT RODAN - GET WELL WISHES
 
ROBERT RODAN (Real Name: ROBERT TRIMAS)  portrayed the “Frankenstein Creation” called ADAM in the long-running 1968 Dark Shadows storyline in which “Dr. Lang” (Addison Powell) sought to create a “living being” from dead human body parts, lightning-electricity, and Barnabas’ supernatural Life Force. The “creature” struggled to understand his existence and how to deal with the human world around him.
 
Since the early days of DARK SHADOWS fan gatherings in the 1980s-2000s, Robert’s been a frequent and enthusiastic presence. He enjoyed meeting and interacting with fans of all ages at the DS FESTIVAL events. He also hosted his own birthday party one year, celebrating with DS friends and fans.
 
Leaving his acting career behind in the 1970s, Robert moved to California and became a successful real estate broker among other endeavors. He also actively pursued his great love of sailing. He recently moved to Oregon.
 
ROBERT now is facing a serious heart health situation. SHADOWGRAM shares that he would enjoy hearing from DS fans and friends at the following address:
 
Robert Trimas
11858 SW Lesser Road
Portland, OR 97219

SHADOWGRAM sends encouraging healing wishes to Robert and also thanks every DS fan who kindly reaches out to him with a card or note of goodwill.
 
 
***** CHRIS PENNOCK - GET WELL WISHES
 
CHRIS PENNOCK is known for playing multiple characters during the last two years of DS: Jeb Hawkes, Cyrus Longworth/John Yaeger, Sebastian Shaw, and Gabriel Collins.
 
Chris has also been a longtime supporter of DS fan activities, attending many conventions over the decades and also publishing a series of comic books with a focus on his DS days.
 
Married to his lovely wife Lynn for over 25 years, Chris has recently been dealing with melanoma and is currently undergoing treatment. In addition, his and Lynn's daughter Tara has been recovering from COVID-19 but fortunately has not suffered from serious symptoms.
 
ShadowGram sends Chris and his family warmest wishes for a speedy recovery and welcomes friends and fans to send cards to the address below:
