Rounding out the trifecta of the main team of heroes in “Castlevania,” Alucard is perhaps the most complex of all the characters. Even as the son of Dracula and Lisa Tepes, Alucard knows he must put an end to his father’s reign of terror. As a half-human, half-vampire, Alucard walks a lonely road with very little chance at happiness, and yet he finds comfort in the friendships he makes with Sypha and Trevor.
English actor James Callis has had a varied career for the last few decades, and not just thanks to his handsome features. He made his film debut as Tom in the “Bridget Jones’s Diary,” and appeared in the later sequels as well. He was also a regular in the 2004 cast of “Battlestar Galactica” as the womanizing Dr. Gaius Baltar. Callis has many other TV credits to his name, including “Eureka,” “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation,” “12 Monkeys,” and “Blood and Treasure.”
During the same 2019 Comic Con panel mentioned earlier, Callis shared his thoughts on the show’s impact and what it meant to him: “For me, it’s interesting that something that is anime can be so truly scary, so really worrying — disturbing, I would say, [which] I think then makes it important. [We’re] chronicling something, there’s some, no pun intended, but like some real meat on the bones … And it’s not just about the characters, who are in the show, it’s about society, and about the ripping apart of that society. So it’s pretty serious stuff, and it’s very exciting to be a part of it.”
