jessica de gouwAustralian actress Jessica De Gouw has been cast in the new Dracula series along side Jonathan Rhys Meyers.

Deadline reports the show is described as “Dangerous Liaisons meets The Tudors”, the series is set in 1890s London. It centers on Dracula (Meyers), who arrives in London posing as American entrepreneur Allen Grayson, who maintains that he wants to bring modern science to Victorian society. In reality, he hopes to wreak revenge on the people who ruined his life centuries earlier, but he falls hopelessly in love with a woman who seems to be a reincarnation of his dead wife.

De Gouw will play that woman, Mina Murray, a striking medical student who is engaged to Jonathan Harker but upon meeting Grayson both are instantly mesmerized by the other’s uncanny resemblance to someone from their past.

Sound sort of interesting. Can it last all 10 episodes we wonder? Dracula fans are a very fickle bunch so for NBC’s sake… I hope it can.
