The creators of Sherlock are back with their own rendition of Bram Stoker’s Dracula. The mini-series is a collaboration between BBC One and Netflix.
The show has been written and created by Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss. 52-year-old Danish actor Claes Bang will star as the main character, a scary vampire.
About his latest role, The Square actor said, “I’m so excited that I get to dig into this iconic and super-interesting character. Yes, he’s evil, but there’s also so much more to him. He’s charismatic, intelligent, witty and sexy.”
Adding further, “I realize that there’s a lot to live up to with all the amazing people that have played him over the years, but I feel so privileged to be taking on this incredible character.”
The gruesome trailer shows Bang’s character in 1897, Transylvania about to devour his latest victim. He tells a terrified man, “Try and stay calm, you’re doing very well.”
Steven Moffat told Radio Times previously, “There’s lots of things that are challenging about Dracula. Having an evil lead character is actually really difficult. That’s been the main challenge I think. But how we’ve handled, that you’ll have to wait and see.”
The cast also includes John Heffernan, Dolly Wells, Joanna Scanlan, Jonathan Aris, Morfydd Clark, Sacha Dhawan, Nathan Stewart-Jarrett. Furthermore, Lyndsey Marshal, Chanel Cresswell, Matthew Beard, and Lydia West have also joined the cast.
However, no release date has been announced for Dracula yet. But rumors claim that the three-part mini-series will air around Christmas.
