With Dracula Untold hitting theaters nationwide later tonight for sneak preview screenings, Legendary Pictures has released a featurette that offers new insight into the Master Vampire character, played by Game of Thrones star Charles Dance.

Luke Evans (Fast & Furious 6, Immortals) stars in Dracula Untold, the origin story of the man who became Dracula. But, before this legendary bloodsucking creature was born, he was just a mortal man named Vlad Tepes. It is Charles Dance's Master Vampire who gives Vlad the Impaler the power to become Dracula, as the actor explains in this featurette that includes plenty of new footage.

Go behind the scenes with the Master Vampire Charles Dance for a glimpse into his dark world. Directed by Gary Shore and produced by Michael De Luca, Dracula Untold co-stars Sarah Gadon, Dominic Cooper, Samantha Barks, Zach McGowan, Charlie Cox, Art Parkinson and Diarmaid Murtagh.
