John Karlen Dead

John is alive and kicking and is currently 85 years old.

John Karlen Dark Shadow

In the realm of Dark Shadows, he is most famous for portraying the role of the henchman, Willie Loomis in the original 1966 series. He joined the cast in early 1967, and remained a series regular until the final episode in 1971.

During his tenure on the show, he also portrayed the characters of Carl Collins (1897 flashback), William Hollingshead Loomis (1970 PT), Desmond Collins (1840 flashback), and Kendrick Young (1840 PT). Between the five characters, Karlen has appeared in a total of 179 episodes of Dark Shadows.

John Karlen Cogney and Lacey

When John Karlen accepted his Emmy this year—for his role as Harv, Tyne Daly’s paunchy, steadfast hubby on Cagney & Lacey—he provided the exuberant high point in an otherwise soporific evening. A guy who once earned pin money as a bookie in the barrooms of Brooklyn, Karlen brandished his prize, untied the knot in his throat and after a few preliminary words told the audience: “I need this more than a working man needs a loaf of bread.”
