Netflix has announced the cast of its upcoming miniseries based on Bran Stoker’s Dracula, which we first reported on back in October. Joining actor Claes Bang as “Dracula” is John Heffernan, Joanna Scanlan, Dolly Wells, Morfydd Clark, Lujza Richter, and series co-writer Mark Gatiss.
Gatiss said: “I’m running out of childhood dreams to come true. And what a delight to join this fantastic cast. The children of the night!”
Co-writer Steven Moffat added: “So exciting to see an amazing new cast start to assemble, I hope Claes doesn’t eat them all.”
The series will consist of three feature-length episodes, and filming is set to begin sometime this Spring. Dracula will premiere on BBC One & Netflix, though release timing is still unknown, so stay tuned!
