Jonathan Rhys Meyers returns to TV this fall as the most famous vampire in the world on NBC’s “Dracula,” and today new cast promo images have been released via SpoilerTV, featuring rising stars Jessica De Gouw, Katie McGrath and Oliver Jackson-Cohen as the human trio caught in Dracula’s supernatural world.
Naturally, this isn’t Bram Stoker’s “Dracula” in its strictest form. Myers’ vampire disguises himself as an American entrepreneur, integrating into Victorian society in England while secretly seeking vengeance on those who wronged him centuries earlier. Meanwhile, De Gouw’s Mina draws him in as the spitting image of his murdered wife. Jackson-Cohen plays Jonathan Harker, a different take on Stoker’s protagonist, while McGrath goes blonde to play Lucy Westenra. Victoria Smurfit, Thomas Kretschmann and Nonso Anozie also star.
“Dracula” premieres on Friday, October 25th at 10pm on NBC. Below are the new cast images, as well as the official series trailer that premiered earlier this year. Will you be watching?
