More About the Author

Writing and Acting have always been twin careers. Kathryn has a recurring role playing George Segal's girlfriend Miriam in The Goldbergs, and appears in the 2015 mid-season launch of Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. She has launched the mystery/thriller JINXED and completed the memoir, LAST DANCE AT THE SAVOY. Kathryn, who wrote the novel DARK PASSAGES based on Dark Shadows, appears in a cameo role in Tim Burton's Dark Shadows, starring Johnny Depp. Her latest nonfiction title is DARK SHADOWS: RETURN TO COLLINWOOD.
Kathryn grew up on a farm in Robbinsdale, Minnesota. Upon graduation from the American Academy of Dramatic Arts, Kathryn landed the ingénue lead in the classic Gothic daytime drama Dark Shadows (ABC, 1966-1971), and starred in the 1971 MGM feature, House of Dark Shadows. Kathryn played four roles in the series: Maggie Evans, Josette du Pres, Lady Kitty
Hampshire and Rachel Drummond. Kathryn wrote Dark Shadows Memories to coincide with its 20th anniversary and Dark Shadows Companion as a 25th
anniversary tribute.
Kathryn launched Pomegranate Press, Ltd. to publish books about the entertainment industry, including guide books, biographies, textbooks and coffee table art books. She wrote The Bunny Years (the 25-year history of Playboy Clubs told through
the women who worked as Bunnies), optioned by Disney for a feature film, and acquired by Imagine Entertainment's Brian Grazer. She also co-produced a two-hour special for the A&E Network, and a one-hour documentary for BBC-1 and Canadian TV, based on the book. Pomegranate has published over 50 nonfiction titles, including Scott's books, Lobby Cards: The Classic Films (Benjamin Franklin Award for Best Coffee Table
Book) and Lobby Cards: The Classic Comedies.
Kathryn's theatrical credits include a lengthy run with James Stewart in Harvey in London's West End. She has appeared in many television series and mini-series, including Barbara Taylor Bradford's Voice of the Heart, Dan Travanti's wife in Murrow, George C. Scott's mistress in The Last Days of Patton, Philip Marlowe's girlfriend in Chandlertown, and series regular with Brian Dennehy in Big Shamus, Little Shamus. Feature films include Providence, The Great Gatsby, Brannigan, The Greek Tycoon, Assassination, 187 and Parasomnia, Dr. Mabuse, Dark Shadows, etc.
Kathryn maintains homes in Los Angeles and New York. She issued a Tradepaper edition of Coya Come Home, with a Foreword by Walter F. Mondale, in August 2012. Kathryn has written three novels, Dark Passages (2012) Down and Out in Beverly Heels (2013), Jinxed (2015) and a memoir, Last Dance at the Savoy.

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By StuartM on 14 Nov. 2002
Format: Paperback
Pomegranate Press has chronicled and paid tribute to the "Dark Shadows" mythos for nearly 15 years now, and as the 35th Anniversary of the show draws close, "Dark Shadows Memories" becomes the latest in a long line of commemorative tomes.
The book is made up of cast remembrances and factual commentary, including a lengthy excerpt from Kathryn Leigh Scott's long out-of-print memoir, "My Scrapbook Memories of Dark Shadows". Scott speaks with warmth and anecdotal wit, feeling encouraged to comment warmly of the series that launched her career. This is an unashamedly subjective overview of the series, written with gratitude and nostalgia, leisurely trawling through happy times, but still manages to offer some occasional surprises along the way.
Perhaps the most interesting element of the book is its subtle shift in tone from its predecessors. Whereas past books have taken a firmly reverent, nostalgic look at the actors and their lives, this book seems more willing to acknowledge some of the disappointments and pain that the "Dark Shadows" cast also faced. Alexandra Moltke sets the tone in her foreword, in her comments about Thayer David. Presented warmly, but with pragmatism, they emerge as a commendation for the actor, delivered without malice or judgement.
Similarly, David Henesy's contribution shares a welcome candour with readers, delivering healthy doses of nostalgia and gossip with aplomb. Where previous books tiptoe coyly around sensitive areas, David gleefully shares stories of cosmetic surgery and narcotic substances with moments of genuine insight. In many ways, his contribution is the highlight of this book, and thus seems frustratingly brief. His memories are vivid and detailed, and he clearly has a lot of unique things to say about the "Dark Shadows" phenomenon.

Acknowledgements, Table Of Contents and Foreward.
Her original book, "My Scrapbook Memories of Dark Shadows"
contained the following:
1. Acknowledgements & Table Of Contents
2. Dark Shadows Memories - by Kathryn Leigh Scott
3. Pictures From The Album
4. The Dark Shadows Story (a synopsis of all the plots)
5. The "House Of Dark Shadows" plot summary (the first DS movie)

7. The Dark Shadow Staff & Crew
8. In Memoriam

What's new in "Dark Shadows Memories":
1. Added a Foreword by Alexandra Moltke
2. Slightly revised and updated her Dark Shadows Memories article
3. Added an interview with David Henesy (done via email)
4. Slightly revised the Dark Shadows Story
(a synopsis of all the plots)
5. Edited "The House of Dark Shadows" movie summary (much better)
6. Added "The Night Of Dark Shadows" movie summary
(it was barely mentioned in the original book)
7. Added "The Museum of Television & Radio Tribute To Dark Shadows." There are pictures, a summary and comments made by the Dark Shadows stars at the event. (March 8, 2001)
8. Added a short article by Jim Pierson detailing the many facets of Dark Shadows: the show itself, the merchandise, spanish versions of the episodes, the Sci-Fi Channel adding Dark Shadows to it's schedule and the recent tribute mentioned above.
9. Added "The Episode Guide" by Ann Wilson. It is available as a separate book from Kathryn Leigh Scott's publishing company, Pomegranate Press. It has been edited and included as part of this book, leaving out who did the voiceovers for each episode, ABC-TV's volume number for each episode, and the MPI video volume number for each episode.
The "Dark Shadows Cast" and "Dark Shadows Staff & Crew" listings have been removed along with the "In Memoriam" list but that's because all of that information is now in her book, "The Dark Shadows Almanac."
All of the pictures in Dark Shadows Memories are new - literally hundreds - some in color but her first book, "My Scrapbook Memories of Dark Shadows" was on a much higher quality of paper and that made all of the pictures breathtakingly beautiful. Her new book uses a lower grade of paper and although the pictures look very good, they are still a slight disappointment. But I suspect that the cost of doing a book like that now made using the higher grade of paper out of the question.
In conclusion, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND her new book, "Dark Shadows Memories."
"My Scrapbook Memories of Dark Shadows" is now unfortunately out-of-print. There is always the chance that someone might sell there copy but most likely at a very high price.

Memories of Darker Shadows... 29 Jun. 2001
By A Reader - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Pomegranate Press has chronicled and paid tribute to the "Dark Shadows" mythos for nearly 15 years now, and as the 35th Anniversary of the show draws close, "Dark Shadows Memories" becomes the latest in a long line of commemorative tomes.
The book is made up of cast remembrances and factual commentary, including a lengthy excerpt from Kathryn Leigh Scott's long out-of-print memoir, "My Scrapbook Memories of Dark Shadows". Scott speaks with warmth and anecdotal wit, feeling encouraged to comment warmly of the series that launched her career. This is an unashamedly subjective overview of the series, written with gratitude and nostalgia, leisurely trawling through happy times, but still manages to offer some occasional surprises along the way.
Perhaps the most interesting element of the book is its subtle shift in tone from its predecessors.

Similarly, David Henesy's contribution shares a welcome candour with readers, delivering healthy doses of nostalgia and gossip with aplomb. Where previous books tiptoe coyly around sensitive areas, David gleefully shares stories of cosmetic surgery and narcotic substances with moments of genuine insight. In many ways, his contribution is the highlight of this book, and thus seems frustratingly brief. His memories are vivid and detailed, and he clearly has a lot of unique things to say about the "Dark Shadows" phenomenon. I hope that he will be encouraged to share some more memories soon.
Complimenting the text is an excellent range of previously unpublished photographs, married with two sumptuously reproduced colour inserts. The colour sections are made up of full-page portrait shots of the actors, with some genuinely stunning treasures included.
Around a third of the text is composed of episode synopses and plot summaries, which seem to jar oddly with the more emotional, nostalgic material elsewhere. For many fans, these sections will seem superfluous, such information having already been made available in several other books. However, for new devotees freshly drawn in from SciFi Channel reruns, they will probably be gratefully accepted.
Ultimately, the book scores most strongly when it concentrates on people and their stories, which prove far more compelling than any episode guide. And by letting these stories play in a more pragmatic, less sugar-coated way, they prove genuinely illuminating. On that note alone, "Dark Shadows Memories" claims a place as one of the most important books published about the series, and it would be rewarding to see future "Dark Shadows" references build on this promise.

A Mixed Bag 12 July 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I have mixed feelings about this book. It's got some lovely photos that I've not seen before; the color ones are especially worth the purchase of the book. However, I strongly feel that this could have been a better effort by Pomegranite Press.
There's an episode guide which contains not only a one or two sentence synopsis of each episode but also a listing of the characters, writer and director involved in each.
The history of the show has been seen elsewhere, but it fits and it's worth the read if you don't happen to have the out-of-print books in which it was first published. I prefer the original version of the history which was written with more awareness of the absurdities to which the show was often subject.
Ms Scott has obviously made some much-needed corrections to her narrative that first appeared in "My Scrapbook Memories of Dark Shadows," but there are still any number of factual mistakes. They detract.
The paper quality and the black and white photos could have been better considering the price of the book.
Still, this has quite a few plums for anyone interested in Dark Shadows or certain facets of television history.

"Dark Shadows: Memories" is Enlightening 11 July 2003
By L. Martin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is a great book for those wanting to learn more about "Dark Shadows", whether the show is new to you or you're rediscovering it after years of last seeing it. Behind-the-scenes information, a short synopsis for each episode, and memories of the other cast members by the author. Kathryn Leigh Scott really enjoyed her time on the show, and it comes through in the book as she talks about the hectic shooting schedules, almost with a fondness. It's nice to read that over 30 years later she is still friends with her "Shadows" co-stars. How many people can say they are friends with their ex-co-workers after that many years? I recommend this book to anyone who ever had or still has a fondness for the show.

Enjoyable, fun read 2 Aug. 2001
By R. Jamison - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I found the book enjoyable, especially the David Hennessy interview. He was candid, humorous and insightful into the people he worked with as a child. It would be nice for him to write a book expanding more on his memories + what it was like to be a child actor in NYC in the 60s-70s. It would also be a fun movie idea if you ask me. . .from his perspective, working on this crazy show with actors who 'lived' the life. Observing all the craziness of the fans, the hysteria. . .
I would like to see a future DS book catalogue more of the crazy stories we've heard over the years. This one was a rehash of earlier Memories books and the attempts to explain the DS storylines (convoluted as it was).
