Timothy Gordon was an extra on the set of the original Dark Shadows. He played the one-time role of Barnabas Collins, but only to the extent of his left hand, which he used to choke John Karlen’s character, Willie Loomis. He later returned to portray the ghost of Jeremiah Collins. Gordon was Jeremiah's body and Addison Powell provided the voice for the ghost.
Tim Gordon died in Concord, New Hampshire on September 28, 1993 at the age of 71.
