Posted on: December 5th, 2018

Danish actor Claes Bang (The Square, Girl in the Spider’s Web) has been cast as Dracula in the upcoming series for Netflix and BBC. The series will consist of 3 90-minute episodes that will begin filming in 2019.

Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss have written the and created the series that will, obviously, be based on the iconic horror novel written by Bram Stoker.

When speaking about his casting in the series, Bang said:
“I am thrilled to be taking on the role of Dracula, especially when the script is in the hands of the incredible talents of Steven Moffat, Mark Gatiss and the team responsible for Sherlock,” said Bang. “I’m so excited that I get to dig in to 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. I realise 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.”

Bang will join the ranks of actors who’ve played Dracula, including Christopher Lee, Bela Lugosi and Adam Sandle; Hotel Transylvania, anyone?
