If you’ve been following the blog for a while you know I’m a huge fan of Richelle Mead, and the Vampire Academy series is one of my favourites! So imagine my excitement when I woke up this morning to this awesome movie news!
First, the title. It was revealed yesterday I think, and It’ll be Vampire Academy – Blood Sisters. This is actually the title of the French books (Soeurs de sang), so I wasn’t shocked but I still don’t see the connection. Either way, it’s nice to see some progress!
BUT, the amazing news is… The 3 main characters, Rose, Lissa & Dimitri, were cast!
Zoey Deutch will play the kick-ass Rose part. I am pleased enough by this decision. She does look the part, and even though I haven’t seen any of her movies, she’ll be part of the Beautiful Creatures movie so I’ll get to see her in action very soon!
Lissa, the beautiful blond, will be played by Aussie star Lucy Fry. Once again, I don’t know a thing about her acting talents, but at least she looks the part!
And last, but certainly not least, suave and sexy Dimitri will be brought to life by Danila Kozlovskiy!!! Another unknown actor for me but I’m freaking ecstatic by this decision! First, he IS Russian! Second, he is old enough and third he is damn good looking! I was so scared they would pick someone like Ben Barnes because, in my humble opinion, he is NOT Dimitri material!
Here’s a second shot with long hair:

Are you as excited as I am??
