De Gouw, who played the iconic character known as the Huntress on The CW’s freshman breakout starring Stephen Amell, will star opposite Jonathan Rhys Meyers in the vampire series being eyed for fall 2013.

The series, which bypassed the traditional pilot stage, takes place in the 1890s and finds Dracula living a double life in London as an American businessman interested in bringing modern science to Victorian society. But his true plan — to exact revenge on those who burdened him centuries ago — is derailed when he falls in love with Mina, who seems to be a reincarnation of his dead wife.

De Gouw will play Mina, the only woman studying to be a doctor at University College in London. She’s described as being forward-thinking, clever and independent — more at home at a bohemian party than sipping tea in drawing room.
