A decidedly different take on vampires is on its way to Showtime–with some changes in the cast.
Let the Right One In–a vampire series based on the bestselling 2004 novel by John Ajvide Lindqvist and a 2008 Swedish film adaptation–this week added two new ensemble members in recurring roles, according to a report on Deadline.
Zeljko Ivanek (an Emmy winner for Damages) and Fernanda Andrade (Sons of Anarchy) have joined the cast, replacing Larry Pine and Susan Santiago, who appeared in the pilot.
Ivanek will portray Arthur, a scientist and father of Claire (Grace Gummer) and “the former chief executive of a once-proud, but now disgraced, pharmaceutical empire.” Andrade will play Elizabeth, the wife of Mark (Demian Bichir) and mother of Eleanor (Madison Taylor Baez), whose love for her family “motivates her to go to any lengths to protect them.”
The 10-episode series–produced by Tomorrow Studios–centers on Mark and his daughter Eleanor, “whose lives were changed 10 years earlier when she was turned into a vampire,” according to the official synopsis.
Locked in at age 12, Eleanor lives a secluded life–only going out at night–while her father “does his best to provide her with the human blood she needs to stay alive.”
Let the Right One In is the brainchild of showrunner and screenwriter Andrew Hinderaker and director Seith Mann, who will helm several episodes.
