The Vampire Academy website has been begging, literally begging for a makeover for FOREVER and finally it's got it. The site's been updated to match the overall marketing angle for the film, i.e green and pink EVERYWHERE and with that has come some very interesting NEW character pics, actor bio's, live twitter feeds and more!
First of all, there's this. A banner like photo of the cast in character doing their best 'mean faces' i.e scowling at the camera, through a haze of pink...well pink stuff. And then of course there's a clutsy looking Natalie (Sarah Hyland) who apparently didn't get the memo...Lol! Poor Nat!
Next up are some pretty cool character images of our main cast and along with it, Actor Bio's in a meet-the-cast kind of way.
First up is:
Here's the first paragraph from her Actor Bio.
Zoey Deutch, 19, comes from a showbiz family of musicians and actors going back two generations. Growing up in Los Angeles, her parents (actress Lea Thompson and director Howard Deutch) knew acting was in the genes when Zoey would play out scenes with her dolls and weep for the Barbie that was down on her luck. This kind of dedication showed up a few years later when she began landing comedic and dramatic roles in both film and television at the ripe age of 15. Zoey was a serious dancer as a child excelling in ballet, competitive jazz, and tap. She was a double major in both theatre and visual arts at the Los Angeles County High School for the Arts, while simultaneously studying at the Young Actors Space with Patrick Day.
A snippet from her bio,
Lucy's rapid career rise began in 2009, with a lead in the short INSTEAD OF BREAKFAST for Quinn Films and a featured role in a Thirsty Merc music video.
Soon after, at the age of 18, she appeared in H2O: JUST ADD WATER, before starring as a series regular in LIGHTENING POINT, a guest star in REEF DOCTORS, and again as a regular in MAKO: ISLAND OF SECRETS - all for Jonathan M. Shiff Productions. Lucy constantly captivates her audience, imbuing each new role with talent, maturity and naturalness. During her time on LIGHTENING POINT, Lucy wowed fans and producers by throwing herself into her surf training, performing most of the surfing sequences herself.
Dominic is from Kent in South East England.
He began his career playing small roles in feature films such as Tim Burton’s CHARLIE AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY before being discovered by David Chase who cast him as a young Mick Jagger in his acclaimed feature NOT FADE AWAY. Dominic is also a very talented singer and musician.
Sarah Hyland is a Native New Yorker, born to parents that are actors so talent and love for the craft runs in the family. Trained in all areas of dance from the age of three and vocally trained since she was seven, Hyland is a true triple threat.
Born in Moscow and trained at the St. Petersburg Theatre Arts Academy, Danila Kozlovsky is one of Russia’s leading actors on both stage and screen. He made his stage debut as Edgar in KING LEAR for Maly Drama Theatre for which he was awarded a Golden Sofit Award for Best Debut. He also won Best Actor for his role in WE ARE FROM THE FUTURE in 2008 and other film roles followed, most notably in THE TARGET, SISSY, CRIME AND WEATHER and SOULLESS – the highest grossing Russian picture in 2012, taking in over $15M at the box office.
Last but by no means least,
Cameron is a series regular on the international hit show, SHAMELESS on Showtime. The 4th season is currently in production and Cameron continues to be a fan favorite in the role of Ian Gallagher, son of Frank Gallagher (William H. Macy) and sister of Fiona Gallagher (Emmy Rossum). In addition to his work on the series, Cameron has recently wrapped a lead role in a 2014 Weinstein theatrical release THE GIVER, opposite Jeff Bridges and Meryl Streep, directed by Phillip Noyce.
And if you're a Spotify fan, the site also has some stellar individual character playlists, as well as a Guardian playlist. AND a link to St Vladimir's Academy gossip site "Gush" for all the latest Academy news. The full trailer is also up on the site, along with movie stills AND (gosh, there's more!?) a link to the World of Vampire Academy/Richelle Mead.
I think I got everything in there, as always stay up-to-date by clicking that follow button, following the official pages on Twitter (here and here) and liking the Official FB pages (The Weinstein Company page is currently only available for US fans, but the Producer run page is available worldwide).
