Producer Adi Shankar has just posted a YouTube video formally announcing the voice actors for his animated Castlevania series. Joined by actor Graham McTavish, who will be voicing Dracula in the series, the duo announced a full cast that includes Richard Armitage (Trevor Belmont), and James Callis (Alucard). Check out the video below for the full announcement…
Quite an impressive cast for Netflix’s first dip into the video game realm. Both Graham McTavish and Richard Armitage had sizeable parts in The Hobbit trilogy, with McTavish having a history of lending his voice to video games (The Order: 1886); Armitage recently portrayed “The Great Red Dragon” Francis Dolarhyde in the last season of NBC’s Hannibal to chilling effect. You may also recall James Callis’ incredible performance as Gaius Baltar in Syfy’s hit series Battlestar Galactica. Rounding out the cast are Alejandra Reynoso (Sypha), Emily Swallow (Lisa Tepes), Matt Frewer (The Bishop), and Tony Amendola (The Elder).
The Castlevania series is hitting Netflix on July 7th.
