His elegance and grace was an inspiration then and will continue to remain one forever more. "When I had the honour to finally meet him, as he so generously passed the torch of Barnabas to me, he was as elegant and magical as I had always imagined.

My deepest condolences to his family and friends. The world has lost a true original," Depp said. Frid filmed a cameo appearance in Burton's forthcoming adaptation, marking it his final on-screen role.
