Netflix’s Vampire Series V-Wars Casting News
Netflix is adapting Jonathan Maberry’s vampire book V-Wars into a 10-episode drama series. We already know that Ian Somerhalder, Adrian Holmes, Jacky Lai, and Peter Outerbridge have been cast. Now, three more people have been announced for the series. Laura Vandervoort has been cast as Mila, Kyle Breitkopf will play Dez, and Kimberly-Sue Murray will be Danika. If you’re unfamiliar with V-Wars, here’s a synopsis:
The book, published in 2012 by IDW Publishing, debuted as a collection of prose stories that chronicles the first Vampire War. In the series, Somerhalder will star as Dr. Luther Swann, who enters a world of untold horror when a mysterious disease transforms his best friend, Michael Fayne, into a murderous predator who feeds on other humans. As the disease spreads and more people are transformed, society fractures into opposing camps pitting normal people against the growing number of these “vampires.” Swann races against time to understand what’s happening, while Fayne rises to become the powerful underground leader of the vampires.
