The BBC has revealed the first pictures from its new adaptation of Dracula, with The Affair and Borgen star Claes Bang getting his teeth into the lead role.
The co-production between BBC One and Netflix will consist of three feature-length episodes, written by Doctor Who and Sherlock writers Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss and inspired by Dublin author Bram Stoker's classic novel.
"In Transylvania in 1897, the blood-drinking Count is drawing his plans against Victorian London. And be warned: the dead travel fast," said the BBC.
When his casting was announced last year, Bang said he was "thrilled" to take on the iconic role and work with Moffat and Gatiss to give Dracula another lease of life.
"Yes he's evil, but there's also so much more to him, he's charismatic, intelligent, witty and sexy," Bang continued.
"I realise that there's a lot to live up to with all the amazing people that have played him over the years, but I feel so privileged, to be taking on this incredible character."
Filming is continuing on the miniseries, which will premiere on the BBC, with Netflix having the rights outside Ireland and the UK.
