Supernatural TV show Gothica casts Van Helsing

Janet Montgomery joins The Fades’ Tom Ellis in horror update Gothica

ABC’s supernatural TV show Gothica has cast Janet Montgomery (Black Swan) as Grace Van Helsing.

The series also stars Tom Ellis (The Fades, The Secret of Crickley Hall) as Victor Frankenstein and Chris Egan (Resident Evil: Extinction) as Dorian Gray.

Deadline reported the casting, and gave the following synopsis:

“Set in the present day, the ABC Studios/Mark Gordon Co. project weaves together a mythology that incorporates the legends of Dracula, Jekyll and Hyde, Frankenstein and Dorian Gray. It centers on Grace Van Helsing (Montgomery), a Pulitzer prize winning journalist from New York who takes over her family’s hometown newspaper. Dorian Gray (Chris Egan) provides her with the $20 million she needs to retain control of the paper, and she was romantically involved with Victor Frankenstein (Tom Ellis) years ago.”
