ABC have long been touting a new series called Gothica and now we have cast members!
Gothica is a modern-day story that draws on the mythology of the gothic classics Dracula, Jekyll and Hyde, Frankenstein and Dorian Gray. In this new version Victor Frankenstein, who we now know will be played by Buffalo Soldiers actor Tom Ellis (top, left), runs a hospital pioneerinc genetics and believes he can resurrect his dead daughter – oh and his girlfriend is called Grace Van Helsing. Cough.
The second confirmed cast member is Resident Evil: Extinction’s Chris Egan (top, right) who will play Dorian Gray who in this take, written by Matt Lopez, is a flamboyant millionaire who owns the newspaper Grace Van Helsing works for.
