There have been quite a few clips and stills that have been released. What has been the general feedback on social media and what do you think of them?
Richelle: I am a huge fan of everything that I have seen. I have read the script and I have seen an early cut of the movie. I have the big picture to look at. To me, it is very true to it and I think people are starting to feel that way the more they see actual footage from the movie. I think some of the advertising was confusing to some fans who didn’t quite understand the angle that they were going for – it looked like it had more humor than they were expecting. It was kind of an attempt to differentiate it from Twilight and some of the other supernatural works out there. Vampire Academy is a very funny book. It is also a very serious, heartbreaking book too. It does have its sense of humor, so they were really playing up that angle in the advertising. I think once fans have started to see these clips, especially in the last couple of weeks – there has just been tons of them and new trailers and all sorts of good stuff- I think they are seeing what I have been seeing for a long time. It really does capture that dark tone, the humor, the romance, the action. It’s a big balancing act both in the book and the movie and I really do feel like they got that. Daniel Waters, who wrote the script, understood what I was trying to do in the book. He captured that in his screenplay, I feel.
What scene are you most excited to see on the big screen?
Richelle: I am most excited about the ending. Endings are my favorite part to write of the book. It’s what everything is building towards – all the clues, all the mysteries. It’s when everything comes together for me as a writer. Then also, it goes extremely fast. I can slave over a book for weeks and then write an ending in a couple of days. I was super excited to see that on film. The draft that I have seen of it – I thought it was just really wonderful what they did. They got all the action, it follows all the main points that are in the book. They added a few things that don’t take away from anything, but make it look really neat on screen. I think fans are really going to enjoy that.

Zoey Deutch and Lucy Fry stopped by BuzzFeed to talk about vamps (not the sparkly kind).
For those who
haven’t read the book, could you tell us what
about?: is about an academy
with vampires! There’s three races of vampires; the Moroi, the Strigoi, and the
dhampir. The Moroi are living vampires and Lissa, my character, is a Moroi who
has powers as all Moroi do. The dhampir are the half-human/half-vampires who
protect the Moroi from the Strigoi, the evil undead vampires, who want to kill
the Moroi and suck their blood.
: So basically auditioning for this you
can imagine I’m sitting in my room being like, “Moroi, Strigoi, dhampir,
what?!” It’s very difficult, but not complicated; the words are just funny.
It’s just the context. Once you understand that [the structure of the vampire
world], the premise of the film is that Rose and Lissa are best friends, and
Lissa’s parents die in a car accident and she’s really scarred and feels all of
these dark shadows, and scary things happening at the school. So Rose protects
her and takes her away from the academy, and the film starts with them being
captured and taken back to the academy, and they have to face of all these
things they’ve been running away from, including the bullying at the school.
Whilst also discovering what even happened in the first place because their
memories were warped.
Have you read all
the books yet?
I’m almost there.
Yeah, one person has pronounced it as dom-fairy, dom-fairy-yon, etc.
