Dracula: Season 1 - Own it on DVD and Blu-ray Today - Celebrity Reincarnations

February 10 2014

DRACULA Season 1 stars Jonathan Rhys Meyers as the dark and devilish Alexander Grayson (aka Dracula) in this sensual, bloody and refreshing take on the classic story.  As the mysterious American entrepreneur known to all as Alexander Grayson arrives in Victorian London, his motives are clear, to wreak horror and revenge upon all those who ruined his life centuries earlier, however his plan did not anticipate him falling hopelessly in love with a woman who appears to be a reincarnation of his dead wife.

To celebrate the release of Dracula : The Complete First Season on DVD and Blu Ray on 10th February 2014 from Universal Pictures (UK), we looked into some infamously known dead doppelgangers...

Nicolas Cage

A photo dealer found a photo of a man from Tennessee, 1870, in the back of an album of death portraits from the Civil War era. The image clearly shows an eerie resemblance of Nicolas Cage and even resulted in the public claiming Cage could be a vampire!

Matthew McConaughey

Matthew’s character in Dazed and Confused delivered the infamous phrase “Just Keep Livin”, which is ironic when you consider the photograph in The Library of Congress of Matthew McConaughey’s creepy deceased twin who was once a union officer.

John Travolta

A photograph collector in Ontario, Canada found a picture of John Travolta’s 1860 doppelganger, weirdly enough, John’s belief in Scientology states that reincarnation is part of life and death.

Brad Pitt

Brad Pitt’s spitting image is also famous in his own right, Hermann Rorschach was a Swiss Freudian psychiatrist and psychoanalyst – he’d probably have a lot to say about Brad’s psychological blockbuster, ‘Fight Club’.

Gene Hackman

Gene Hackman’s double is a dapper gentleman who looks like he could be from the 1930’s, a period which Gene can relate to as played Clyde’s older brother in Bonnie and Clyde.

Maggie Gyllenhaal

Maggie Gyllenhaal’s reflection could easily be mistaken for Rose Wilder Lane’s. Rose was an American journalist, travel writer, novelist, and political theorist in the early 1900’s.Her mother was the author of the famous Children’s book, Little House on the Prairie; famous relatives also run in Maggie’s family, her brother Jake Gyllenhaal is also a famous actor.

Jessica De Gouw

Jessica De Gouw who plays Mina Murray, the living reincarnation of Dracula’s dead wife, storms into Dracula’s life causing him to get caught  up in emotions he was never supposed to have.
