New Interview of Zoey Deutch with Teen Vogue on Why You Should See Vampire Academy on Valentine's Day
Zoey Deutch Makes a Really Good Case About Why You Should See 'Vampire Academy' on Valentine's Day
Reason number one? Because it's awesome.
(Excerpts from the article):
Zoey, who's every bit as outspoken and generally awesome as the heroine she plays, is clearly proud to take on such an iconic role. (Seriously, anyone who has read the book adores the character—and anyone who hasn't read the book should do so immediately.) "She's a badass, she knows how to fight, and she stands up for herself," Zoey says of Rose Hathaway. "But she's also a remarkably loyal best friend, and I respect her so much for that. I love that she uses her humor as a means of survival. She knows who she is, and isn't afraid to show it."
IRL, the 19-year-old actress is who she is, too, but that doesn't mean she's not without her insecurities. "Growing up, I was an attention wh*re, being the little sibling and all, but now that I'm an actress, I can't deal with attention," she confides. "I get really nervous when people are like, 'I saw you in a trailer! I saw you on TV!' Genuinely, my cheeks get red." Another thing that separates her from her vampire alter-ego? The ability to blush.
