Deadline is reporting that ABC’s gothic soap “Gothica” has cast Emma Booth (pictured above; Blood Creek) as Victor Frankenstein’s (Tom Ellis) wife Madeline Usher in this series that is “set in the present day, which weaves together a mythology that incorporates the legends of Dracula, Jekyll and Hyde, Frankenstein and Dorian Gray.”
As a reminder, “In this incarnation of the story Frankenstein runs a hospital that also does biotech research and believes that he may have a way to bring his recently deceased daughter back to life. Gray is a wealthy playboy. Booth joins the previously cast Janet Montgomery, Chris Egan, and Tom Ellis.
The show “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. ” ABC Studios and the Mark Gordon Co. are producing the pilot written by Matt Lopez.
