While we’ve all been excited about Netflix’s version of Castlevania coming, there hasn’t been a lot of talk about who the voice cast is. So we just assumed it would be like a lot of video-game related projects where we wouldn’t find out anything until the show was on the air and we were reading the credits, as some archivist in training rushed to IMDB. Thankfully, we got an answer today, and the cast is an interesting one.
Flanked by the awesome and stacked Graham McTavish who will be playing Dracula, show producer Adi Shankar revealed in a video on his personal YouTube channel a short introduction to the cast. The cast is as follows:
Richard Armitage (Thorin from The Hobbit) as Trevor Belmont
James Callis (Battlestar Galactica) as Alucard
Alejandra Reynoso (G.I. Joe: Renegades, Winx Club) as Sypha Belnades
Emily Swallow (The Mentalist) as Lisa Tepes
Matt Frewer (Max Headroom) as The Bishop
Tony Amendola (Continuum, Once Upon A Time) as The Elder
That’s an interesting piece of casting for Castlevania. I especially love Matt Frewer, who doesn’t get enough credit for all the stuff he’s done in movie roles like Watchmen and Honey I Shrunk The Kids or his TV work from shows like Star Trek: TNG or Supernatural. You can watch the video below for the announcement.
