We reported previously that actor Chris Egan has been cast as Dorian Gray in the upcoming ABC pilot Gothica. Now we have news that actress Janet Montgomery, who was most recently seen in the cancelled series Made in Jersey, has also been cast as the lead according to Deadline.
ABC’s gothic soap Gothica. Set in the present day, the ABC Studios/Mark Gordon Co. project weaves together a mythology that incorporates the legends of Dracula, Jekyll and Hyde, Frankenstein and Dorian Gray. It 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 (To Ellis) years ago.
