by at . Comments

Katie McGrath and Nonso Anozie (pictured) have joined the cast of Dracula.

NBC has yet to announced a premiere date for the drama, which will star Jonathan Rhys Meyers as the titular character, but McGrath (Merlin) will portray a social butterfly named Lucy Westenra.

Look for her to be the close friend of Dracula's muse, Jessica De Gouw's Mina Murray.

Nonso Anozie

Anozie (Game of Thrones) will play R.M. Renfield, a confidante of Dracula’s alter ego, Alan Grayson, and the only person who knows Grayson's dark secret.

When the series does eventually air, it will focus on a Dracula who is torn between seeking vengeance on London socialites and a woman with an eerie resemblance to his late wife
