David Bradley takes THE STRAIN

The much-in-demand David Bradley has been cast in the crucial role of Abraham Setrakian in FX's TV adaptation of Guillermo Del Toro and Chuck Hogan's novel, The Strain. Bradley has recently been seen playing Walder Frey on Game of Thrones, William Hartnell in Doctor Who drama An Adventure in Space and Time and Argus Filch in the Harry Potter movies.

Meanwhile, FX has aired a brief teaser for the show, which features rats. A pilot was filmed in September, although most of this material will be reshot due to the recasting of Setrakian (played by John Hurt in the pilot). The series proper began shooting a couple of weeks ago and will debut in July 2014. The show has been fast-tracked after an extremely long period in development.
