Updated on April 7, 2013

Chloe Moretz Plays Carolyn Stoddard in Tim Burton's Dark Shadows movie

Chloe Moretz plays Carolyn Stoddard in Tim Burton's 2012 remake of Dark Shadows. Carolyn Stoddard is the daughter of Elizabeth Collins Stoddard, played by Michelle Pfeiffer in this film. The character of Carolyn Stoddard was originally played by Nancy Barrett in the 1960s - 1970s television soap opera. Chloe Moretz will likely bring a different facet to this character: Chloe is 14, where Nancy Barrett was 24 when she played the role of Carolyn Stoddard.

The Original Carolyn Stoddard - As Played By Nancy Barrett

Here is how Nancy Barrett played the original Carolyn Stoddard character in the 1960s - 1970s Dark Shadows soap opera. I'd assume some adjustments will be made as Chloe Moretz is only 14. Although, her character in 'Kick Ass' was violent and foul-mouthed. We won't know until we see the film I guess!

Just what is Carolyn's secret? Moretz also talks about how much easier it is to work in an elaborate set like the Collinsport Mansion instead of on a greenscreen, as well as how she gets over being starstruck working with film icons like Johnny Depp and Michelle Pfeiffer.
