David Bradley (“Harry Potter,” “Broadchurch”) is set to replace John Hurt in a key role in Guillermo del Toro’s “The Strain” TV series for FX.
Corey Stoll plays the head of the CDC Canary Team in New York City. He and his team are called upon to investigate a mysterious viral outbreak with hallmarks of an ancient and evil strain of vampirism.
Bradley takes on the role of Professor Abraham Setrakian. A Holocaust survivor who now runs a pawn shop in Spanish Harlem.
Filming begins later this month in Toronto.
