ABC’s monster-drama Gothica has found its lead actress.
Janet Montgomery has been cast as Lady Van Helsing in the potential series pilot. The series is described as a sexy, gothic soap that incorporates the legends of some big name monsters including Dracula, Frankenstein and Dorian Gray. The idea for the potential series comes from Matt Lopez, who wrote The Sorcerer’s Apprentice.
Montgomery joins Chris Egan as Dorian Gray and Tom Ellis as Victor Frankenstein in the pilot. Her character will be part of a love triangle and is a writer trying to discover the truth behind the death of her parents.
Montgomery the star of this year’s quickly cancelled Made in Jersey for CBS.
Whether or not the pilot makes it through to a series remains to be seen. We’ll find out in May if we could be tuning in for this one next season.
