Dominic Sherwood Lands Role In 'Penny Dreadful' Spin Off!

Dominic Sherwood is joining the cast of Penny Dreadful: City of Angels!

The 29-year-old Shadowhunters actor will play a chauffeur and bodyguard named Kurt, “who also possesses an unexpected depth and surprising background,” Deadline reports.

“Honoured to be joining this team!!” he shared on Twitter.

Here’s a synopsis: It opens in 1938 Los Angeles; a time and place deeply infused with social and political tension. When a grisly murder shocks the city, Detective Tiago Vega (Daniel Zovatto) is embroiled in an epic story that reflects the rich history of Los Angeles: from the building of the city’s first freeways and its deep traditions of Mexican-American folklore, to the dangerous espionage actions of the Third Reich and the rise of radio evangelism. Before long, Tiago and his family are grappling with powerful forces that threaten to tear them apart.

Dominic joins fellow new cast members Adam Rodriguez, Jessica Garza, Michael Gladis, Lorenza Izzo, Thomas Kretschmann, and Ethan Peck, as well as previously announced Natalie Dormer, Nathan Lane, and Rory Kinnear.
