Zoey Deutch as Rose
Let's start with Zoey. I love the casting and even though I don't know anything about the actors playing Lissa and Dimitri, Zoe was freaking awesome in Ringer. I can't wait to see her in Beautiful Creatures bringing her A-game in being the queen bee and trying to destroy Lena's life as Emily Asher. She is just plain awesome and I'm soooooo excited *clapps hands and laughs like a lunatic*
She can laugh and be the life of the party like Rose. If you watch any of her live interviews for Beautiful Creatures on youtube, for instance, she is always bubbly and fun. And she's got a great laugh:)
After watching Ringer (why was that show cancelled? Just when it got interesting... -.-) I know she can be sarcastic and snarky - the very definition of Rose Hathaway.
Zoey is versitile and can portray the depth of Rose's growth on the big screen, I know she can.
Oh, and this little scene in Ringer reminds me of a little someting in Vampire Academy. Just look at her face and the emotion on it. She will rock the socks off our feet, I am sure of it!!
You know.. I didn't know who to pick as my choice for Rose, but Zoey is fantastic. If you're a doubter, give her a chance. She is amazing and I can't wait to see her in this role:)
Lucy Fry as Lissa
I don't know much about her, but I know that this mermaid show she was on was pretty big in Australia and I think she has it all in the looks department to play Lissa, let's just hope she is as beautiful in her performance:)
Danila Kozlovsky as Dimitri
Okay, so I know nothing about Danila, but I don't need to. If the casting crew thought he was great, then he must be, right? Plus, we can't have Ben Barnes,who I believe is the most wanted actor for this role like A. Pettyfer was for Jace Wayland. I think this choice is better though. I like Ben, but an American actor playing Russian guy isn't that believable, I'm sorry.
The fact that they chose a Russian guy to play Dimitri is so fabulous that I could die of excitement right at this very moment. As Richelle said in her post that she couldn't tell the difference, yeah. I bet a lot of you won't, but even though I'm Estonian and my Russian is almost non-existant, then I can tell the difference. I'm sure not only Russian fans, but many others from Europe can and if it were an American trying to do an English/Scottish accent e.g., like A. Hathaway did in One Day, many of us would be disappointed. It sounds just too cheesy. Like.. I almost winced when S. Johansson did a Russian accent in The Avengers. It was too awful. Also, it doesn't hurt that he has dimples *sigh* So yeah, you can say that I'm glad;)
The only thing that bothers me a bit is the new title - Vampire Academy: Blood Sisters - but I can live with that as long as there's gonna be six movies, lol. I hope there will be, at least.
If you want to read about what Richelle had to say about all of this, you can do so here. This year is already gonna rock with Beautiful Creatures, The Host, Warm Bodies, City of freaking Bones, Catching Fire, Thor 2 and Iron Man 3 coming out on the big screen, The Selection and Delirium being pursued as TV shows, Teen Wolf being half as long as usual and now I can finally say that it's gonna be the most wonderful year of movies ever!!! Yay! =))))))))
PS. Sorry if there're more errors than usual, I didn't read it through, because I have to go study biochemistry, but I just wanted to gush and share this excitement with you, guys. Hopefully you are as glad as I am that things are finally moving forward.
I am so, so pleased with this casting! I'm a bit iffy with Zoey's acting, but I only saw her in the first half of Ringer and - let's be honest - it wasn't the best written show. I am soooo excited to follow the production of this!ReplyDelete
Aaahh, yes! I know!!! It's so good that this project is finally running on full force and I cannot wait for the official stills and set pictures and and and.. ugh.. I'm just so god damn excited! LOL, Ringer. Yeah.. The writing was what ruined it, cuz let's face it - it had Sarah Michelle Gellar and what more could you ask for? I pushed through the first half of the season and then if really picked up and Zoey was amazeballs;)Delete
I AM SO EXCITED ABOUT THIS MOVIE!!!!ReplyDelete
More than any other book-to-film, I am excited about VA. The casting choices are PERFECT. I, too, am in love w/Dimka. And we Americans are thrilled that the role is being played by a Russian.
Thanks for such a fun post!
EEEEK!!! I'm so glad that someone truly shares my enthusiasm. I think Richelle Mead is the best and this movie is gonna be EPIC! I've only shared such an excitement with one casting and that was TMI. I. Cannot. Wait. For. This. Movie;)Delete
I love it that they've casted a Russian guy for a Russian character. That makes it so realistic and he is good looking too. I haven't read the books yet, but I'm going to this year :) Thanks for sharing!ReplyDelete
I know, me too!!! It's so awesome. Haha, no, it doesn't hurt that he is good looking. I cannot wait to see what you think of these books. They're one of my favorites. Love 'em:)Delete
I, admittedly, haven't read VA, but I adored Zoey Deutch in Ringer, so I have complete and utter faith that she'll do awesome in the movie. Thanks for the update!ReplyDelete
Yep, her character turned out to be my favorite in the end:) Zoey is such a talented actor that I know she'll do great as Rose! You should totally read the books, they're fantastic:)Delete
YES! So happy Zoey is going to be Rose!! She's going to be fantastic. Just look at those last two GIFs—she's giving total Rose-face and Rose attitude. Love this post, and glad you're happy with the castings too! (We'll just ignore that title for awhile).ReplyDelete
WIN!!! Hahaha. Yes, she's awesome! Plus, she's short and spicy - just like Rose. I love her:) Eeek!! I'm just so excited. Oh, the title is awful, but I'll survive. I hope;)Delete
