dracula katie mcgrath nonso anozie 'Game of Thrones' and 'Merlin' stars join NBC's 'Dracula'

NBC’s “Dracula” series has just added two new cast members. In addition to Jonathan Rhys Meyers, “Game of Thrones” star Nonso Anozie and “Merlin” actress Katie McGrath have joined the series.

They join “Arrow’s” Jessica De Gouw in the new series. De Gouw will play “Dracula’s” lead female Mina Murray, while Meyers will portray the title character. TV Line reports that McGrath will play Lucy Westenra, “Aristocratic London’s sexy, social butterfly who has a penchant for gossip, flirting and all things glamorous.” Lucy is the best friend of Mina who “gradually becomes entwined in a web of lies, lust and temptation that challenges the boundaries of their relationship.”

As for Anozie, he’ll portray R.M. Renfield, the “fiercely loyal confidante of Dracula’s alter ego, Alan Grayson.” TVLine writes that Renfield is “the keeper of Dracula’s deepest and darkest secrets and the stabilizing force that allows his two personas to successfully coexist.”

Anozie is known best for playing Xaro Xhoan Daxos on “Game of Thrones,” while McGrath played Morgana on “Merlin.” NBC has yet to set a date for “Dracula” to premiere.
