So many VA feels! If you haven’t died yet, wait for it… This could finish you off.
EW have released 5 new HD stills from the upcoming movie, Vampire Academy, here.
Be sure to check out Director Mark Waters’ captions for some insight into these scenes.
Zoey Deutch looking badass as Rose Hathaway.
”This is a little bit of a leap off the book,” teases Vampire Academy director Mark Waters, ”but Rose has a brief moment where she has a chance to kill a Strigoi, but then she hesitates because she’s still a novice, and fails to go through with it. I have to keep it a little cryptic because I don’t want to reveal too many things that happen in the movie, but it is her brief moment of trying to do something, but her training is not quite up to it yet.”
BEWARE: DRAGOZERA FEELS. Dominic Sherwood and Lucy Fry getting all snuggly as Christian and Lissa.
”If you know the story between Christian and Lissa, they have an attraction and Rose tries to sabotage the relationship,” explains Waters, ”but then when they come to the dance is when they come together for the first time and actually bend to the fact that they like each other and want to be boyfriend/girlfriend. So it’s a very nice moment where they realize they’re allowed to be together.”
”This is an interesting one because there’s a running gag in the movie where Rose tries to surprise attack Dimitri, and this is the first time she tries to do it,” previews Waters. ”She says, ‘I should have had you!’ And he says, ‘Well, keep it up. Keep trying to attack. It’s good training for both of us.’ But the tension of this moment is nice because after he tackles her and pins her down, they realize, ‘Wait a second. I’m still holding you down. And we’re still really close to each other.’ It’s a bit of an uncomfortable, awkward, romantic moment when they realize that they’re this close to each other and they have to kind of quickly disengage.”
The beginning of a beautiful, albeit forbidden, romance. Zoey and Danila, ladies and gentlemen.
”[Dimitri is] kind of her mentor and trainer,” says Waters. ”Rose comes back to the academy after having missed a year from training and is kind of out of shape and not as impressive as she once was. But after him taking her under his wing and really busting her in training, she gets better and better at these martial-arts moves that she’ll need later.”
And with every teen movie, comes High School cliques. Aaron, Mia and Camille, played by Edward Holcroft, Sami Gayle and Bronté Norman-Terrell.
”This is actually a moment right when Mia is playing a prank on Lissa,” explains Waters. ”It’s Lissa’s first day of school after coming back to the academy, and she’s leaning down to have a drink at the water fountain. And Mia — who’s a water magic user — causes the water fountain to explode and completely splatter her face and clothes.”
