The first photos and trailer for Vampire Academy: Blood Sisters have arrived!
The photos debuted on USA Today and Zoey Deutch revealed what she loves most about playing heroine Rose. “I love this story and Rose and every aspect of it just as much as any die-hard fan,” Deutch says. “I’m stoked for people to see how we’ve remained loyal to the book but also injected some of our own colors into it.”
So how does director Mark Waters describe Rose? “She has a wicked sense of humor and is openly sexual — when she likes a guy, she goes after him. It’s not at all like the shy, demure creatures you’ll meet in the YA novels.”
In the film, Rose Hathaway is a Dhampir, half human/vampire, guardians of the Moroi, peaceful, mortal vampires living discretely within our world. Her legacy is to protect the Moroi from bloodthirsty, immortal Vampires, the Strigoi. This is her story.
The movie is set to open on Valentine’s Day 2014. The cast also features Lucy Fry as Lissa, Joely Richardson as the Moroi Queen Tatiana; Gabriel Byrne as Victor Dashkov, a man close to Rose and Lissa; Modern Family star Sarah Hyland as his geeky daughter Natalie, a friend to both girls; and Olga Kurylenko as Ellen Kirova, the headmistress who clashes with Rose and rules St. Vladimir’s with an iron fist.
