Missy Peregrym is set to join Syfy’s post apocalyptic horror Van Helsing.
The 13-episode, hourlong drama reimagines the timeless Dracula brand with the resurrection of Vanessa Van Helsing, the next in a lineage of warriors who lead mankind in the battle against vampires. Peregrym will play Scarlett Harker, a woman with a mysterious past who might help turn the tide against the vampires.
This is what Chris Regina Senior Vice President, Original Co-Productions, Syfy had to say about the new acquisition.
“We are excited and privileged that Missy is now part of our extraordinary ensemble. We look forward to having our Van Helsing mythology strengthened by her energy, charisma, and talent.”
Neil Labute who serves as showrunner said this about Peregrym who is known for starring in Rookie Blue.
“We are so lucky and happy to have Missy join the Van Helsing team this season. The series thrives on female energy & power and we’re getting two barrels full with Missy’s talents. I can’t wait to see her jump into battle alongside Kelly Overton and the rest of the cast with all we have planned for them in Season Two.”
