Melissa George and Seth Gabel Join Gothica
More casting news has come our way for ABC’s “Gothica” as “Fringe” alum Seth Gabel and one of our absolute favorite actresses, Melissa George, have signed on to the ever expanding cast. Read on for details.
Deadline reports that Gabel will play Roderick Usher, the district attorney and heir to the once-powerful Usher family who is carrying secrets, and George (pictured) will play Fiona Hunter, the series’ most formidable force, and everyone – from Grace Van Helsing (Janet Montgomery) to Dorian Gray (Chris Egan) to Victor Frankenstein (Tom Ellis) – will find their mettle and savvy tested by this deliciously cunning woman. Emma Booth joined the cast yesterday to play Frankenstein’s bride, Madeline Usher.
The ABC drama pilot “Gothica,” is co-produced by the ABC Studio-based Mark Gordon Co. with “Reaper” creators Tara Butters and Michele Fazekas serving as executive producers/showrunners, working alongside creator/executive producer Matt Lopez (The Sorcerer’s Apprentice), who wrote the pilot.
In this incarnation of the story Frankenstein runs a hospital that also does biotech research and believes that he may have a way to bring his recently deceased daughter back to life. Gray is a wealthy playboy.
More on this one soon!
