Matthew Goode Sinks His Teeth Into Vampire Drama A Discovery of Witches

'A Discovery Of Witches' TV Cast

Given his track record of sweeping the ladies off their feet (by way of The Good Wife and Downton Abbey), it was only a matter of time before Matthew Goode sprouted a pair of fangs.

Goode will star opposite Teresa Palmer — who has her own history of romancing the undead, thanks to 2013’s Warm Bodies — in A Discovery of Witches, an adaptation of Deborah Harkness’ internationally best-selling All Souls Trilogy. The story follows Oxford student Diana Bishop (Palmer), a descendant of the witches of Salem who becomes romantically involved with Matthew, a 1,500-year-old vampire.

Filming of the Sky Original/Bad Wolf production begins in September in Wales. Though it has yet to receive a home in the States, A Discovery of Witches will air on Sky1 and Now TV in the UK and Ireland.
