When screenwriter and Dracula scholar Ian Holt decided to pen a sequel to the classic vampire novel, he knew that he wanted a blood relative to lend a hand.
“Ian was searching for a Stoker who was versatile and willing to give something new a go,” Dacre Stoker says. “That pretty much describes me. I was also willing to dig around and ask my family members for any information which would help us to know about Bram as a person.”
