Johnny Depp has spoken out about the type of vampire he attempted to portray in his new film Dark Shadows.
The actor claimed that he paid close attention to the original Dark Shadows actor Jonathon Frid in Tim Burton's remake of the cult 60s gothic soap opera.
He told Flicks and Bits that "a vampire should look like a vampire", in response to recent movies such as Twilight and The Vampire Diaries.
Johnny's traditional and classic portrayal was then described as "a kind of rebellion against vampires that look like underwear
models", perhaps in a reference to teen idol Robert Pattison's main Twilight character Edward Cullen.
The Dark Shadows is out now in cinemas and co-stars Michelle Pfeifer, Helena Bonham-Carter and Eva Green in what has been billed as a dark comedy.
