ABC’s Gothica casts its first two leads…

February 25th, 2013 by Marc Comments

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.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
