Irish Actress Lands Leading Role In Hollywood Series

Star studded cast is sure to make new show a hit

She’s been quietly making a name for herself both in Ireland and on the other side of the pond but it looks like actress Katie McGrath’s career is about to go stellar.

The stunning 29-year old has just bagged the lead female role in an upcoming 10-part series Dracula which begins filming later this year.

The stunning Wicklow beauty is heading to Hollywood

Starring alongside former Tudors co-star Jonathan Rhys Meyers the TV series will focus on Dracula – played by Rhys Meyers – who arrives in 1890s London disguised as an American businessman, under the pretence that he is seeking to modernise science but is in fact seeking revenge on those who turned him into a vampire.

The Wicklow native who is best known for her role as Morganna in the BBC series Merlin will play Lucy Westenra, a friend of Dracula’s love interest so we don’t expect to see any steamy scenes between the two but with such a great cast, it’s sure to become one of our must-watch period drama’s of the year!

With friend and co-star Jonathan Rhys Meyers

Dracula will be shown on Sky Atlantic in the UK and Ireland and on NBC in America later this year
