‘Vampire Academy’ Adds More Names to its Class Cast Roster

by: on | in Entertainment News | 28 Comments



Things are starting to get really good over on the set of Vampire Academy. With production for the book-to-movie adaptation tapped for this month, the Zoey Deutch-led film needs to fill out the rest of its cast list. And that it shall…

As announced by Deadline, four more roles have been filled, including the part of Zoey’s on-screen nemesis, Mia Rinaldi. Sami Gayle, known for her part on CBS’ Blue Bloods, snagged the coveted spot in the VA franchise. The actress says of her new stint, “SO THRILLED to become Mia Rinaldi and to enroll in #VampireAcademy!”

Cameron Monaghan (depicted above), from Shameless fame, is set to portray dhampir (half-human/half-vampire) Mason Ashford, who is one of heroine Rose’s best friends.

Rounding out the rest of the aforementioned slots are Ashley Charles, who will play Jesse Zeklos, a “super hot” Royal Moroi (vampire) attending the academy, and Claire Foy, who will play Sonya Karp, a Moroi who teaches at St. Vladimir’s. They will be joining Zoey, Lucy Fry (Lissa), Danila Kozlovsky (Dimitri) and Olga Kurylenko (Headmistress Kirova) for the ride.

Vampire Academy: Blood Sisters is currently scheduled to hit theaters on Valentine’s Day 2014. Is it on your must-see list? Tell us in the comments!

    Are you kidding me.. VA is on top of my everything list. I’ll go to the other side of the world just to watch this movie.. I’ve been following it ever since they broke the news of it being made into a movie in 2010. VA is the best book I’ve ever read (& I’ve read almost 200 books) .. We’re so lucky to have OVAM, who gives us every single little detail of what’s happening with the movie.. :)

      Can anyone see my comment?? I wrote a long one but I can’t see it.. :(

  • Ebony

    I cannot wait! There is a reason VA has such a big fanbase. Everything about it is perfection: The characters, the world, the writing. I am expecting big things form this movie and I have no doubt it will deliver.

  • Ebony

    Cannot wait to see this movie. Their is a reason VA has such a huge fanbase; The book series is amazing! So I am expecting wonderful things from the movie. Valentine’s Day can;t come fast enough!

  • Noalla

    I think the only casting they got right was Jesse, Mason and Mia. BEN BARNES WOULD HAVE BEEN PERFECT. It doesn’t matter if he’s not russian that is what acting is for ugh. Cameron as Mason is perfect tho. But Rose, idk man the girl they casted just seems…to pretty. like she doesn’t seem to have much of an edge to her look. Lissa is fine i guess. PLEASE DONT MESS UP THIS CAST I HAVE WAITED YEARS TO SEE THIS HAPPEN

  • Amanda Coleman

    Ahhhhhh I’m so exited that he is playing mason he was my pick the whole time I’m so exited and I can’t wait for this movie to come out :)

  • Clark

    Depending on who they cast as Christian Ozera will determine if I see this film or not. They already screw the franchise with a bad female lead(AKA Zoey). I saw her in Beautiful Creatures and thought she tried too hard. Lissa’s casting was horrible…And as far as Dimitri goes I’ll just say this-The whole point of acting is to ACT. They didn’t need a Russian to play a Russian. They were cheap and decided to pick a no-name to save money. I know a lot of people are saying “Oh it’s going to be the next Twilight blah blah blah”-no. VA will not accumulated that kind of fan base now. Vampires are overdone. The director should’ve gotten started two years ago instead of making everyone wait until Twilight ended. The director doesn’t even have many merits to be classified as a DIRECTOR. In the end it all falls on Mead. She wanted that paycheck for selling her book rights. She knew better than to hand it off to the first person who offered. Now all of the characters are spoiled and fans are in such denial that they can’t see how bad this is actually going to be.
    1) No budget.
    2) Bad actors.
    3) Director isn’t very experiences.
    ….The list can go on and on for the screw ups they’ve made….
    My opinion? It will tank like Beautiful Creatures. The entire movie is riding on Zoey and I’m sorry but HAHAHAHA, not gonna happen…SHAKES HEAD…Nope! I see a 15-18 million dollar opening weekend….Sounds about right.

    • Tristan

      Um excuse me, im pretty sure a russian accent is very hard to pull off, i much rather hve the real thing than having to listen too some crappy accent, There is definitely a budget, do you not know how popular the books are, and it will make it because it is completely different than twilight and will attract a different audience. You are clearly NOT a true fan if you are wasting your time writing all of this bullshit, none of those actors from twilight were truly well known until the movie, and now kristen stewart is the highest paid actress in hollywood, proving your point completely invalid, so basically go fuck yourself!

      • Stephanie Rose

        Well said Tristin! 😉

    • Kristal

      Noname? If you are talking about Danila you are very mistaken. Not only did they get a Russian actor for Dimitri, they got a Russian actor that has won the Russian equivalent of the academy awards. He can act just fine and I loved Zoey in Ringer and think she will do AMAZING as Rose, so gtfo and take your whining elsewhere.

  • Laura

    no me gusta
    Danila Kozlovsky como dimitri … T_T …. se me kayo un idolo … ami me gusta Ben Barnes =( haaaaaa :'(

  • CRS

    The books are really good. And they are not your typical run of the mill “vampire books” either. In fact, the characters are sometimes more human than even we are. So any of you that have not read the books (yet!), don’t turn away because of the title. :) (Plus, the main character/protagonist is half human anyways.)

  • Jess

    I am only seeing it because they cast a russian as a actual russian

    • Madeline

      I think they are casting pretty well. I agree with you, the fact that they got an ACTUAL Russian to play Dimitri shows they want this to succeed.

  • Anguhluh

    VA is an epic book series and I am so excited to see it come to the big screen! And can I just say Cameron is PERFECT for Mason!!! <3

  • Sammy

    I heard these books were really good!

    • Ali

      You heard correctly :)
