Dominic Sherwood Interview with OK! Magazine on How Mean Girls Got The Cast Through Filming
So, you want to know more about Dom, don’tcha? We talked to
the hottie about the movie, his relationship with co-star Sarah Hyland,
his obsession with Modern Family, and whether or not he dropped Mean
Girls one-liners on set. And oh, if you’re wondering, gals? He sorta
hinted that he’s looking for a relationship…
OK!: Your character,
Christian, has quite an interesting relationship in the film with Lissa (played
by Lucy Fry). What’s it like?
Dom Sherwood: Yeah, well it’s really cool because it’s not about them being
vampires. They both are and they’re both members of the royal bloodline and
they’re defended by the guardians and that’s where the guardian training comes
into play. But their relationship is very much, they both feel alone and kind
of find soulmates and kindred spirits in each other because of
their loneliness. But it’s a really lovely relationship.
OK!: Does it remind
you of any of your own relationships?
Dom Sherwood: No,
god no (Laughs). My relationships have all been a trainwreck so far. I’m still
waiting for a lovely relationship to come out that’s something like Lissa and
OK!: Mark Waters,
your director, also directed Mean Girls. Did you guys find yourself
dropping Mean Girls lines on set with him?
No, I think Zoey (Deutch) and Sarah (Hyland) popped a couple in every now and
then but I think it would’ve been a bit weird, especially since I was playing
like an anti-social darkish introvert character. If I were to pop in a Regina
George line everyone would look at me weird so I held off. I kept it all
OK!: Ha! What’s your
favorite line from this movie?
DS: It’s in the
book but its been tweaked a little and it’s like my first line when I first
bump into Lissa and I say, ‘don’t worry, I don’t bite. Well at least not in the
way that you’re afraid of.’ And we took the line from the book as well. It’s
all kind of taken as a bit of a joke.
OK!: I see you’ve
tweeted a lot at your co-star, Sarah Hyland. Are you a Modern Family fan?
DS: I literally,
I wish I could take a photo of my living room right now. I’m watching Modern
Family. Just as you rang. I had to pause it. I’m a huge fan and I’ve got my
housemates as huge fans now as well. Sarah and her boyfriend Matt (Prokop) were
lovely enough to invite me to their 100th episode party when I was over in LA.
It was amazing. I got to meet a couple of the other cast members and it was
really cool and nice of them and I’m eternally grateful and that’s where I met
Ariel Winter and the other guys.
