For now, we’ll just get hyped for Castlevania, which stars Outlander and The Hobbit‘s Graham McTavish as Dracula, Richard Armitage (also The Hobbit) as vampire hunter Trevor Belmont, Battlestar Galactica‘s James Callis as Alucard, Alejandra Reynoso (GI Joe: Renegades) as Sypha Belnades, Emily Swallow (Supernatural) as Lisa Tepes, Matt Frewer (Orphan Black) as The Bishop and Tony Amendola (The Mask Of ZorroAnnabelle) as The Elder.

Castlevania premieres on Netflix on 7 July. Get all the latest fantasy news with every issue of SciFiNow.
