Zoey Deutch ‘Vampire Academy,’ Interview

Though Vampire Academy appears to be just another vampire-themed movie, Deutch believes it’s different. “My character has never been done before. Ever. One hundred percent has never been done before. That’€™s a fact. I can say that,” Deutch told Uinterview. “I can’t necessarily vouch for like, ‘€˜Is this the only funny non-parody of vampire film?’€™ I don’€™t know. But it is. It’s very humorous. It has a lot of jokes and a lot of, embedded into the story without kind of taking you out of it in my opinion at least. It’€™s just like constantly strewn throughout the story.”

Deutch enjoyed the friendship aspect of the film too, particularly her Rose’s friendship with Lissa (Lucy Fry). “It’€™s a story of friendship between two girls, which is rare, unfortunately, and about them prioritizing each other over a relationship with a guy,” Deutch told Uinterview.

Deutch also enjoyed training for the action-packed fight scenes, too. “You get full-time trainers and professionals teaching you how to defend yourself. It’€™s amazing. It was an awesome life experience that I probably never would have done,” Deutch told Uinterview. “But I trained for about three months prior, I think, three months. It’€™s all a blur. I was too exhausted and sore and in Epsom salt baths. I don’€™t know how Mark Wahlberg does it. I have no idea. Or all those guys, I have no idea. I could not do that every movie. And I trained throughout the filming and during my lunch breaks and yup. It was definitely a new experience to me because I had never even been in a gym.”
