It seems the Weinsteins are shouting about the fact that ‘Modern Family’ star Sarah Hyland does indeed also star in their upcoming release of Mark Waters’ ‘Vampire Academy’. Based on the teen novel series from author Richelle Mead, actress Hyland (below) stars as Natalie Dashkov, a member at the academy. The main leads Zoey Deutch (‘Beautiful Creatures’) and Lucy Fry (‘Lightning Point’) have been the main focus of attention up to now but any new images of Sarah Hyland geeking it up in her school uniform are welcome here. ‘Vampire Academy’ also stars Sami Gayle, Dominic Sherwood, Danila Kozlovsky, Joely Richardson (‘Event Horizon’), Gabriel Byrne (‘Ghost Ship’), Olga Kurylenk, Claire Foy and Cameron Monaghan. Head below for the images.
“VAMPIRE ACADEMY tells the legend of Rose Hathaway (Deutch) and Lissa Dragomir (Fry), two 17-year-old girls who attend a hidden boarding school for Moroi (mortal, peaceful Vampires) and Dhampirs (half-vampire/half-human guardians). Rose, a rebellious Guardian-in-training and her best friend, Lissa – a royal vampire Princess – have been on the run when they are captured and returned to St.Vladamirs Academy, the very place where they believe their lives may be in most jeopardy.
Thrust back into the perils of Moroi Society and high school, Lissa struggles to reclaim her status while Rose trains with her mentor and love interest, Dimitri (Kozlovsky), to guarantee her place as Lissa’s guardian. Rose will sacrifice everything to protect Lissa from those who intend to exploit her from within the Academy walls and the Strigoi (immortal, evil vampires) who hunt her kind from outside its sanctuary.”
‘Vampire Academy’ opens in the US on 14 February and in the UK on 19 February.
