Humbert Allen Astredo, Jr. (also credited as Humbert Astredo; 4 April 1929 – 19 February 2016) was an actor from the original Dark Shadows, who played the parts of the warlock Nicholas Blair, Satanist Evan Hanley, and Charles Dawson. Humbert also played Dr. Forbes in the 1970 MGM film House of Dark Shadows (who treats Todd Blake after he had been attacked by the vampiric Carolyn Stoddard). No stranger to soap operas, he also appeared in Edge of Night, Guiding Light, Love of Life, Loving, One Life to Live, and Texas. On Broadway he appeared in Les Blancs, Murderous Angels, An Evening with Richard Nixon and ..., and The Little Foxes.

Humbert attended Dark Shadows-events in his early days, but not so after his retirement. For many years, his hobby was sailing and he actually did get to sail around the world. In 2008 he was in very poor health, being unable to attend a memorial service for his daughter, Jenny, following her death from breast cancer (his wife was there).

Humbert died in Guilford, Conneticut aged 86.
