The cancellation of the sexy Victorian drama “Dracula” a few weeks ago was a huge blow to the show’s star Jonathan Rhys Meyers. Sources say the actor was really happy doing the NBC series and it was a painful shock when it wasn’t renewed. Meyers has wrestled with alcohol abuse problems in the past (he was banned for life from United Air Lines) and has been to rehab several times. Friends feared the worst when the cancellation caused him such despair that he was feeling like a failure. But he got lucky. Meyers just signed to appear in the gay rights movie Stonewall, which recently started filming.
