Jessica De Gouw Cast in NBC’s Dracula
Arrow’s Huntress is NBC bound. Aussie actress Jessica De Gouw has been cast as the female lead in NBC and Sky Living’s upcoming Dracula.
Starring Jonathan Rhys Meyers (The Tudors) the 10 episode series (which will also air on Sky Living in the UK), described as Dangerous Liaisons meets The Tudors, is a somewhat re-imagined story that puts Dracula in London, where he poses as an American entrepreneur intent on educating the Victorians in the ways of modern science.
However he secretly seeks to revenge himself on those who ruined his life centuries earlier. (We don’t expect too many red-sharpie moments a la ABC’s Revenge with this tale.)
Dracula’s plans are thrown into turmoil by a young woman (De Gouw) who may just be the reincarnation of his deceased wife.
Dracula is a joint production between NBC and Sky Living.
