Though teenage vampires are no doubt the flavor of the month (year? decade?), only one bloodsucker has the staying power to keep on truckin’… or suckin’ for that matter. I speak of course of the O.G. himself, “Dracula,” and we have some more casting news for you!
Deadline reports that “Merlin” star Katie McGrath and Nonso Anozie (The Grey) have been cast opposite Jonathan Rhys Meyers in the upcoming NBC/Sky Living HD 10-episode drama series “Dracula.” Jessica de Gouw (The Dinner Meeting, “Arrow”) also stars in the role of Mina.
McGrath will play Lucy Westenra, Aristocratic London’s sexy, social butterfly and Mina’s best friend who has a penchant for gossip, flirting and all things glamorous. Anozie will play R.M. Renfield, Alan Grayson’s fiercely loyal confidante.
The series re-introduces Dracula (Meyers) as he arrives in London, posing as American entrepreneur Alan Grayson, who maintains that he wants to bring modern science to Victorian society. In reality he hopes to wreak revenge on the people who ruined his life centuries earlier but falls hopelessly in love with Mina Murray (Jessica De Gouw), who appears to be the reincarnation of his dead wife.
