Melissa George joins pilot

Australia’s own Melissa George has landed a lead role in the ABC pilot Gothica.

Set in the present day, the project weaves together a mythology that incorporates the legends of Dracula, Jekyll and Hyde, Frankenstein and Dorian Gray.

George will play Fiona Hunter, described as “the series’ most formidable force, and everyone – from Grace, to Dorian (Chris Egan), to Victor Frankenstein (Tom Ellis) – will find their mettle and savvy tested by this deliciously cunning woman.

She follows Emma Booth and Chris Egan who also star  in the series for ABC
