NTDaily: Zoey Deutch, Lucy Fry & Dominic Sherwood Sink Their Teeth Into ‘Vampire Academy’


Vampire Academy is founded on a hugely popular series, so there’s no doubt that being a part of this film is a real big deal. I wanted to ask, because this is such a big deal, what was the best advice you received before signing on to this and who was it from?

Dominic Sherwood: “That’s a good one.”

Zoey Deutch: “Ooh, what’s the best advice we received?”

Sherwood: “Yeah, to handle all the pressure.”

Deutch: “Don’t have any expectations because you’ll be disappointed either way.”

Sherwood: “Who told you that?”

Deutch: “Zoey Deutch.”

Sherwood: “Zoey Deutch?”

Deutch: “No [Laughs]. My mother told me that.”

Lucy Fry: “For me, it was if people don’t like the film then it’s just not for them. In the end, it has to be something that you did for you. My friend Christina told me that I believe.”

Sherwood: “Yeah, mine is kind of similar. It was said by one of my best friends. He said individuality is key to art— a lot of people won’t like something. But hopefully, for every one person who didn’t like it, there will be two or three people who did like it. And that’s what is important— finding the light and shade in all of it.

All of the characters you portray have a certain vulnerability about them. Was it hard to tune into the darker side of your characters?

Fry: “I think it was really fun to get the chance to play with a darkness in the characters because that contradiction and juxtaposition of the light and shade is what makes the character interesting. I really enjoyed that exploration and the challenge of facing those darker places to get to the other places.”

Sherwood: “I am very much with Lucy on this. I think it’s very cathartic to go through and explore feelings and emotions that are quite dark and kind of reflect your own self. It can feel quite good afterwards. I enjoyed the challenge.”

Deutch: “Fans who’ve read the series and know Rose Hathaway will label her, right off the bat, as strong. There are normal things — insights to her vulnerability that are perhaps the most important in her character development, like when she’s wrong. She’s the heroine, the narrator and is supposed to be the decision maker and sometimes the decisions she makes are wrong. I really appreciate that human side to her.”

Obviously, when you create a movie that is based on a novel, filmmakers have to make certain cuts and changes to the source material to kind of spice things up a bit and make the material work as a movie. If someone were to make a movie about your life, what sorts of cuts do you think people would make?

Deutch: “Well, that would be the most boring film of all-time for my life. There are not enough interesting things in my life to make an entire story out of. It would be a boring movie.”

Oh, I highly doubt that.

Deutch: [Laughs]

Sherwood: “They would have to cut a lot of my nights out in central London. I think that would have to go.”

Fry: “Oh, God. Probably all my time walking around trees or something like that. I bet that would be boring [Laughs].

If Dimitri and Christian were to take Rose and Lissa on a double date, what would they do and where would they go?

Sherwood: “Oh, good question. I think Christian would take them to some weird, dark poetry reading.”

Fry: “Lissa would love that.”

Sherwood: “Yes. Lissa would love that. But I think Dimitri would take them to some big, sprawling and really expensive place to kind of show Rose how much she means to him. That’s what I think— some cross between those two. Rose would hate the poetry though“

Deutch: “Imagine all of our characters in a pottery making class [Laughs]. That would a phenomenal scene.”

Fry: “We should do that as a cutaway scene.”

Sherwood: “We should. We’ll have to have a talk with our director, Mark Waters, about it.”

Just Jared: Twitter chat with Zoey and Dominic Sherwood (Feb 6th)



What was the Vampire Academy premiere like? How was it watching yourself on the big screen? 
DS: It was an amazing and humbling experience. So great to see people who support us and the movie. I can’t wait until the next one.
ZD: The premiere was a lot of fun, and bizarrely not too stressful. It was so nice to see everyone again.

What has been the craziest fan encounter been while promoting Vampire Academy? 
DS: They have all been nice so far. Me and Cameron Monaghan got off the stage at a signing in LA, that was a little crazy.
ZD: More than 1 person has brought their child to a M&G to tell us that they named he/she after a VA character. Love those dedicated fans!!

Rose can see through Lissa’s eyes. Whose eyes would you want to see through for the day?
DS: I said Elton John at an interview and my Mum laughed at me, but imagine the people he would meet and the stories he would hear!!
ZD: I’ve said it before, and i’ll say it again, my desert tortoise. I’m convinced he can teleport and I’d love to know how that goes down.

Zoey, your character has a lot of nightmares. What was your most recent nightmare?
ZD: All I remember are my lines and sometimes my middle name, never my dreams or what I ate for breakfast.

What’s your favorite and least favorite quality about your character?
ZD: My favorite quality about Rose Hathaway is her sense of humor, and my least favorite would be her impulse control issues.
DS: His loyalty is my favourite thing about him. His loneliness is the thing i struggle with the most.

Did anyone play pranks on each other on the Vampire Academy set?
ZD: Not that I remember. They could have been pulling pranks on me the entire time and I didn’t know it?
DS: Yea all the time. Sarah Hyland got me good a few times. And I got locked in my trailer once or twice.

If your dream world, what other kind of academy would you want to attend?
DS: Ooo, Good one. Maybe Hogwarts…Or one of Plato’s lecture halls?
ZD: omg what if I answered “THE ACADEMY AWARDS”, then you’d have to punch me 900 times.

In a fight to the death, who would win – Rose Hathaway or Katniss Everdeen?
ZD: That’s a mean question. No answer.
DS: I couldn’t call that one. I think Rose has that kill or be killed spirit, but Katniss has a badass Bow. Of course, if Christian was there he would win *Pulls a disbelieving face haha*
