Rookie Blue star Missy Peregrym joins the cast of Syfy’s Van Helsing!
According to deadline.com, Missy Peregrym will be the vampire show’s newest cast member and will play the role of the mysterious Scarlett Harker. Harker is said to be a series regular which means she will be an important character in season two.

Peregrym, born in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, has starred in the 2006 film Stick It where she played gymnast Haley Graham. The film made over $26 million at the box office and has become a fan favorite. She has also starred on various television shows such Reaper, Heroes and Rookie Blue with a recent guest spot on Hawaii Five-O. It will be interesting to see her character’s impact on not only the storyline but the other remaining characters as well, especially Vanessa.
I cannot wait to see what the creative team behind the shows has in store from now until the new season. I would not be surprised if Missy Peregrym is the first of many new cast announcements over the course of filming. Van Helsing is currently filming season two in British Columbia, Canada. The show stars Kelly Overton, Rukiya Bernard, Trezzo Mahoro, Laura Mennell, Paul Johansson and Aleks Paunovic and is written by Neil LaBute. Zenescope Entertainment is a consultant on the show as it is based off their comic book character Liesel Van Helsing.
Van Helsing airs Fridays at 10pm on Syfy. Check your local listings.
