Luke Evans, Sarah Gadon and Gary Shore, the stars and director of DRACULA UNTOLD, attended an exclusive preview of the British Library’s Terror and Wonder: The Gothic Imagination exhibition. The cast met with British Library curator Greg Buzwell to view a range of their Dracula related exhibits including the original Dracula play script in Bram Stoker’s hand and a 1st edition of the novel.
Greg Buzwell, Co-curator of Terror and Wonder, explained “The Gothic imagination with its love of the awe-inspiring, the wondrous, the terrifying and the uncanny has cast dark and beautiful shadows across all aspects of our lives for hundreds of years. Terror and Wonder, brings this fascinating story to life through manuscripts, paintings, film and fashion. Of course a key figure in the story of Gothic is that of Count Dracula, and being able to explore the origins of Bram Stoker’s iconic creation with the director and members of the cast from Dracula Untold was a once in a lifetime opportunity, a unique chance to combine historical manuscripts and printed sources with the creative imagination that goes into bringing such a memorable and complex character to life on film.”
Dracula Untold is released in UK cinemas on 3rd October 2014, the same day Terror and Wonder: The Gothic Imagination will be open to visitors at the British Library
