Creepshow, Shudder’s first longform original, has announced three new additions to the anthology series’ cast.
Joining the cast are actors David Arquette (Scream franchise), Tricia Helfer (Battlestar Galactica, Lucifer) and Dana Gould (The Simpsons, Stan Against Evil). Shudder also revealed the three new Creepshow stories in which they will appear, and announced Tom Savini (Dawn of the Dead, 1990’s Night of the Living Dead) as the director of Joe Hill’s “By the Silver Water of Lake Champlain” (adapted by Jason Ciaramella), marking Savini’s return to the franchise.
Helfer will star in “Lydia Layne’s Better Half,” written by John Harrison (based on a story by Harrison and Greg Nicotero) and directed by Roxanne Benjamin (Body at Brighton Rock). It centers on a powerful woman denies a promotion to her protégée and lover but fails to anticipate the fallout.
The new cast join Adrienne Barbeau, Giancarlo Esposito and Tobin Bell, previously announced for the Stephen King story “Gray Matter,” adapted by Byron Willinger and Philip de Blasi (The Commuter) and directed by Nicotero (The Walking Dead).
Creepshow is based on the 1982 film written by Stephen King and directed by George A. Romero. The DNA of the original movie is firmly embedded in the new series: in addition to Savini’s and Barbeau’s return to the franchise, Joe Hill played comic-book-loving “Billy” in the original film’s wrap-around segments; John Harrison, who was 1st Assistant Director on 1982’s Creepshow and composed its theme, is back to direct segments of the series; and executive producer and director Greg Nicotero visited the first film’s set as a teenager, and contributed make-up effects to its 1987 follow-up, Creepshow 2.

Tricia Helfer has signed on to the cable network’s Van Helsing, playing the most iconic vampire of them all: Dracula. She’ll appear in the show’s fourth season, which is in production and set for a fall premiere.
Season four will also feature Richard Harmon (The 100), Nicole Munoz (Defiance), Keeya King (Jigsaw) and WWE star Big Show, aka Paul Wight. Details of their roles are being kept under wraps for now.
“We are thrilled to welcome the talented Tricia Helfer to our Van Helsing family,” said Chad Oakes, executive producer and co-chairman of Nomadic Pictures, which produces the series. “She will be a fierce and unstoppable Dark One as the battle between good and evil reaches new heights.”

Hi, everyone! I just wanted to announce that over this week I have done a huge revamp to the photoshoot section of the gallery. To the best of my ability, I have re-organized Tricia’s shoots, placing them by year. If you notice any are wrong, please, let me know as it can be difficult to pinpoint the year for older photoshoots.
