NBC’s new series Dracula is on a roll announcing new cast members, and this weekend they added Victoria Smurfit!

Victoria Smurfit has been added to the cast of Dracula as a series regular, reports Deadline. So far NBC has only revealed that she will be playing Lady Jayne, who is described as lithe and beautiful. Smurfit’s character will be attracted to Dracula, who is posing as Alan Grayson, an American entrepreneur, and decides to pursue him.

Meanwhile, Dracula will be chasing after Mina Murray (played by Jessica De Guow), who he believes is the reincarnation of his dead wife. But things will be complicated, as she is already engaged to Jonathan Harker. Plus she believes that he is the American Entrepreneur Alan Grayson. Dracula will also have revenge on the mind for those who crossed him hundreds of years earlier. The series is set in the late 19th century and focuses on Dracula’s arrival to London and stars Jonathan Rhys Meyers.

Merlin star Katie McGrath has also recently been cast in Dracula. She will play Lucy Westenra, who is described as a sexy social butterfly that has a penchant for gossip. She’s also Mina Murray’s best friend and becomes entangled in a web of lies and lust that challenge their friendship.

Game of Thrones actor Nonso Anozie will also appear on Dracula as R.M. Renfield. Renfield is described as fiercely loyal to Dracula and holds his deepest and darkest secrets. He also holds together the force that allows Dracula to pose as Alan Grayson.

You may know Smurfit from Bulletproof Monk, About a Boy, or The Last Great Wilderness.
