Van Helsing finds Its vanessa helsing

17 February 2016 7:25 PM, PST | FamousMonsters of Filmland | See recent Famous Monsters of Filmland news »

SyFy’s Van Helsing has found its lead in Kelly Overton. The 13-episode take on the myth of Dracula will star Overton as the granddaughter of legendary vampire hunter Abraham Van Helsing who is resurrected five years in the future to find that vampires have taken over the world.

So she starts off dead? Or has she been cryogenically frozen specifically to be preserved until her talents — whatever those may be — are needed? In what five-years-ahead future does this take place? If her grandfather was, say, 35 at the time of Dracula (published in 1897), his child could conceivably be an infant around then and would have its own child perhaps 30 years later, meaning approximately 1930. So going by Overton’s real-life age of 37, and adding in those five years she’s dead (or whatever), this would be 1972?

Lots of questions, but for me, the biggest mystery is why her name is Vanessa Helsing versus Vanessa Van Helsing. »
