VIZ Media is bringing the gothic romance anime series Vampire Knight to North America, and has set the cast for its English-language dub.
The cast includes Mela Lee as Yuki Cross, whose adoptive father runs the Cross Academy; Vic Mignogna as Zero Kiryu, an older student from a family of vampire hunters; and Ethan Murray as Kaname Kuran, head of the vampire Kuran Clan and president of the school’s vampire-filled night class.
‘Vampire Knight is an important series that demanded skilled actors who could portray these complex characters without sacrificing any of the intensity and emotional drama each one exudes,’ says William Germain, director of programming and music sales for VIZ Media. ‘We also know there are a lot of fans of the manga that have been waiting for this series so we wanted to bring in some very talented people who we know will take Vampire Knight to a whole new level.’
Vampire Knight is based on the best-selling manga by Matsui Hino.
