    This guy can’t escape vampire TV shows. Kinda sad.

  • Buffy

    He reminds me of James Marsters who played Spike in Buffy. Everyone said he would have this huge movie career when the show ended yet he has been stuck with fantasy/supernatural roles.

    This is not a supernatural Vampire Show. read the Books. Its a political thriller in which a doctors best friend, turns in to a blood craving creature ,brought on by a Virus, which is spreading due to climate change,, a Subject close to Ians Heart. Luther Swan is trying desperately to find a Cure while battling the creatures.
