Dolly Magazine Australia: Vampire Academy’s Zoey Deutch

ImageGen

If you’re a fan of the Vampire Academy book series something tells us you’re going to be a bigger fan of the film. We caught up with Zoey Deutch who stars as Rose about everything from the film itself, her feelings towards dugongs and bullying.

HAVE YOU BEEN TO AUSTRALIA BEFORE?

No, it’s my first time but certainly not my last. I landed and I walked through the botanical gardens to the Sydney Opera House and then I plan to go to the aquarium to see a dugong because I have a deep, deep passion for manatees and dugongs. They look similar and people mistake them for being the same creature, but they’re not!

WHAT ARE THE MAIN SIMILARITIES BETWEEN YOU AND ROSE?

Probably our sense of humour. I kind of use it as a means of survival as does Rose and also our passion for all things which probably gets us in trouble as well as. It’s a positive attribute and a negative and our fervent opinions on things. We probably don’t know enough about to be that opinionated.

ARE THERE MANY MAJOR DIFFERENCES BESIDES THE OBVIOUS?

Yeah I probably can’t kick ass, so absolutely! I also really admire her loyalty as a friend.

THE FILM IS VERY PHYSICAL HOW DID YOU PREPARE FOR IT?

I did about three months of gym, crav maga, jujitsu , kick boxing  and during filming as well and there was a lot with my diet- as much food as I could possibly shovel in my mouth. I had been a vegetarian for 7 years prior and I became a meat eater for it because I was losing too much weight and I was having a ton of protein shakes so it was pretty full on!

SO YOU PROBABLY COULD KICK BUTT THEN!

[laughs] Not as much as I think I can! I have a much bigger head than I should because when I was doing the scenes all these stunt men had wires on them so I’d punch them and they’d fly across the room so I think I’m stronger than I actually am.

IF YOU HAD A CHOICE, WOULD YOU BE A MOROI OR A DHAMPIR AND WHY?

Dhampir because I’ve said it in every other interview and probably because most stories are about the fact that if you have powers you wish you didn’t. In most supernatural stories the superheroes end up wishing they didn’t have them all.

IF YOU COULD CHOOSE ANYONE IN THE CAST TO HAVE A ‘BOND’ WITH WHO WOULD IT BE?

Well Lucy and I almost have an altered version of a bond I can sense when she’s off, or needs food or if she’s tired. Probably Danila [Kozlovsky who plays Dimitri] because I just don’t understand how he functions as a perfect human.

DID YOU AND LUCY SPEND MUCH TIME HANGING OUT WHEN YOU WEREN’T SHOOTING?

I didn’t have much time to because I’m in pretty much every scene but when we had our day off we would go out sometimes, hang out and get lunch.

WAS IT TRICKY ADJUSTING TO FILMING AT NIGHT?

Absolutely yes, especially the first 2-3 weeks were pretty brutal because I was on LA time and I go to London and spend a month and a half there on London time and then I go to night shoots. My body clock was everywhere but I kind of live in the mentality of ‘don’t think about it’. People ask me if I have jetlag and I’m like nope jetlag isn’t real! People get really confused by that response. But I’m strong-willed in that sense, at the time I think it was ok but looking back it was exhausting.

DID YOU GET TO SEE SOME DAYLIGHT AT ALL?

For the most part no because we would wake up at about 2 in the afternoon, we’d see the sun on the car ride to set and then you’re in a trailer getting hair and make-up so no not a lot of it!

DO YOU THINK MAKING A MOVIE ABOUT A REALLY SUCCESSFUL BOOK SERIES MAKES IT HARDER TO MANAGE FAN EXPECTATIONS?

My mum reminds me that it’s none of my business what other people think about me.

HAVE YOU HAD MUCH FEEDBACK FROM FANS?

Yeah a lot! Negative and positive but they have every right and I totally respect their passion, so if it means they don’t like me or something’s wrong then so be it they’re entitled to their opinion.

DO YOU HAVE ANY FAVOURITE ONE-LINERS FROM THE FILM?

It would be vain if I did but Daniel Waters wrote some pretty hilarious one liners for sure.

MY FAVOURITE IS WHEN ROSE IS TRYING TO REACH LISSA IN A CRISIS AND SAYS, ‘DAMN ONE-SIDED BOND’!

Really!? That’s so funny I love it. I didn’t think that line was funny at all!

WhoWhatWear: How to Wear Spring’s Strong Silhouettes, With Actress Zoey Deutch

WhoWhatWear: How to Wear Spring's Strong Silhouettes, With Actress Zoey Deutch

Actress Zoey Deutch may have gone to the dark side for her role in this month’s Vampire Academy, but for our shoot, she was playful and light, trying out bold prints, pops of color, and spring’s strong silhouette. The 19-year-old, who recently attended her first fashion week, talked to us about rocking shoulder pads (mom Lea Thompson starred in ‘80s film Back to the Future!), crying at The Notebook, and talent-crushing on Natalie Portman.

Describe your style in 3 words.
Elegant and classic juxtaposed with funky.



What is your favorite piece of clothing?
Right now I’d say my favorite piece of clothing I own, and wear the most, would be a pair of bulky black boots from the ‘90s. They’re super flattering and work with almost anything.

How do you decide what to wear on a red carpet?
I don’t really have an exact process yet… Still in the works! For the most part I try to wear what I feel comfortable and good in. I loved this Stella McCartney white high waisted skirt and black loose-fitting top with patches.

I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention your mom’s ‘80s pedigree. Are there any ‘80s trends you’d bring back or be willing to try?
I could maybe rock shoulder pads at some point. Hey, the harem pant came back!

What movie always cheers you up?
Anchorman.

What movie always makes you cry?
The Notebook… How original?

Is there an actor or actress you’d love to work with in the future?
I have such a talent crush on Natalie Portman it’s not even funny. I think I’d spontaneously combust if I got to work with her.
