Games Of Thrones alumna Amrita Acharia has been cast opposite Laura Brent in The CW genre-themed drama pilot Transylvania. Written by Hugh Sterbakov and directed by Jason Ensler, Transylvania is set in 1880 and centers on Victoria (Brent), a headstrong young woman in search of her missing father who ventures from NYC to Transylvania where she teams up with a wrongfully disgraced Scotland Yard Detective, and together they witness the births of the most famous monsters and villains in history. Acharia will play Coriander, an exotic gypsy, the leader of the matriarchal Szgany clan that runs the fleshpots of the Old City — the haunted spot where Vlad the Impaler once killed thousands of their tribe. Acharia played the role of Irri in Game Of Thrones and appeared in feature I Am Yours. She’s repped by Don Buchwald & Associates, Luber Roklin and Conway Van Gelder Grant in the UK.
Ismael Cruz Cordova has joined the cast of Hulu’s drama pilot Citizen. From Me And Earl And The Dying Girl director Alfonso Gomez-Rejon, Paramount TV, and Anonymous Content, Citizen is a fresh take on the hero origin story blending elements of magical realism and gritty vigilantism against the backdrop of the vibrant world of east Los Angeles. Cordova will play Chris Martinez, a fiercely ambitious cellular phone salesman methodically putting together an illicit drug empire with Mrs. Candy. Gersh-repped Cordova has recurred on Ray Donovan and The Good Wife.
