‘Blood Sisters’ Began Filming Today – @ZoeyDeutch Tweets First Picture

Tuesday, May 28th 2013

va1 Vampire Academy starts filming today in London. Who is excited! We are. Though the entire cast is great, we are partial to Zoey Deutch (and maybe that’s because we got to know her a little bit during Beautiful Creatures and we heart her). She tweeted the picture above.

Hollywood Crush also got in on the action, and gave the five things that we need to know…

1. The plot
If you’re reading this post, it’s likely you already know all about the young-adult series upon which the film is based, but just in case, here’s a primer:

The “Vampire Academy” novels are set in a world in which three types of vampires (essentially) co-exist (albeit, not peacefully). There are the benevolent Moroi; the half-human, half-vampire dhampir, who serve as the Moroi’s bodyguards; and the Strigoi, who are baddie bloodsuckers through and through. The series revolves around dhampir Rose Hathaway and her best friend, Moroi Lissa Dragomir. Through an uncanny series of events, the two have become “shadow-kissed,” meaning they share a mental bond (i.e. Rose can read Lissa’s thoughts and feelings). The first installment (subtitled “Blood Sisters” for the purpose of the movie), begins with the friends on the run—but not for long, as they’re found and dragged back to St. Vladimir’s to face the consequences.

2. Familiar faces
“Vampire Academy” is populated with some of the industry’s hottest up-and-comers. You probably recognize star Zoey from her turn as snotty schoolgirl Emily Asher in another YA adaptation, “Beautiful Creatures.” Fun fact about her: Hollywood runs in her veins. Zoey’s mom is “Switched at Birth” actress Lea Thompson. Playing Rose’s good friend (and potential love interest) Mason Ashford is 19-year-old Cameron Monaghan, whom “Shameless” fans will know as Ian Gallagher. And, if you follow the antics of ABC’s “Modern Family,” Dunphy daughter Sarah Hyland is playing troublemaker Natalie Dashkov.

Zoey Deutch Is Ready to Hold Her Own in a Fight Against Evil

We have seen Zoey Deutch in person and we know that she works hard for her body. For the upcoming film, Blood Sisters, the actress has been working hard. Her workout was featured in Teen Vogue.

I’m not the typical choice to play a badass,” admits Zoey Deutch, the smiley eighteen-year-old actress who got her start on the Disney Channel and grew up on a makeshift farm outside Hollywood with pet horses. After proving her acting chops with her film debut in Beautiful Creatures, she’s ready to show the world she can hold her own in a fight against evil vampires as the butt-kicking Rose Hathaway in Vampire Academy: Blood Sisters, a movie adapted from the hit paranormal book series.

To get into enemy-slaying shape, Zoey committed to an intense six-days-aweek gym-training schedule composed of boxing, calisthenics, protein-packed meals, and, of course, Kanye West on heavy rotation: “His music is the only thing that gets me through that hundredth sit-up!” she explains with a laugh.

It’s a major adjustment for the former vegetarian, who hadn’t set foot in a gym prior to taking on the role. “I never thought I would become that person who loves working out,” she says. “It sucks while you’re doing it, but the second you finish, it’s like, Wow, I feel great! I’m stronger and much more confident.” Zoey is quick to admit that she never would have reached this point without her training coach, a luxury she knows most teens don’t have. “I wouldn’t have had the tools. Everything out there about fitness seems so extreme. It’s frustrating,” she says.

We disagree Zoey! You are the choice to play a bad ass. We said a long time ago that you are destined for big things. And we meant it!
