Is this gonna be a comedy? So far it doesn’t seem as suspenseful or intense as the books. Will there be multiple movies?

Lucy: I made it! Finally! Classic
It was great meeting y’all in Houston.
So here’s my question: I’m a film production major and I’m focusing on screen writing and directing. My biggest pet peeve with books being made into movies is when they don’t follow the book (example: Twilight). Have any of y’all actually read the book(s)? And if so how close does the movie follow the book and the characters? Oh, and Dominic, will you marry me:) hah
Dom: The first one stay quite close to the book yeh, there are a few twists and turns to keep you on you’re feet.
I was wanting to know if the movie is going to be the first book only or all of the books in one movie?
Dom: This movie is just the first book
Lucy and dominic how was it filming the love scenes? Was it awkward?(:
Dom: Not at all, Lucy Fry Is a truly lovely person, and our friendship stopped it being strange or awkward
If you could be any other character from the movie, who would it be?
Zoey: For the first book, Natalie. For the second, I’m not sure…
When you played your character, did any of that character’s traits seep into your own personality?
Dom: Not really, i try and keep it all separate, Especially with Christian
How close to the book is the movie?
Dom: very close
how did you guys like working together
Zoey: We all got on very well, it was a joy to get to know everyone.
To all three of you, what was the scariest part of the VA audition?
Dom: The chemistry read, when i met Lucy Fry and Zoey Deutch for the first time
All: Do you think you look like the character was depicted in the book? Do you think you were the best wo(man) for the job?
Dom: Thats the best thing about books, everyones idea and image of the characters will be different, so i guess that all up to you
what was it like to shoot the movie
Dom: Amazing, one of the best things I’ve ever done
What was your favorite scene from the movie to film?
Dom: The Attic and the ending
What’s your favorite quality about your character and who is your favorite character overall?
Dom: He is Loyal, i love that about him
Why is Zoey always in the middle of you 3?! Lol
Dom: not sure, do you want us to change it up?
What was the most difficult scene to film? You guys look great by the way!
Dom: The middle-When you see it you’ll know
Lucy: It was probably the torture scene… ouchies
Zoey: Dominic Sherwood r u a vampire in real life
Is the movie worth it
Zoey: you know it duh
After reading the first book did you all just fall in love with your characters?? I did, lol.
Zoey: Absolutely. Plus my character, Rose Hathaway, narrates the book, so in a lot of ways it’s like having her diary. I got to know her very quickly.
Who’s the funniest cast member?
Zoey: Danila.
Zoey do you look at the awesome possum list often?
Zoey: you know it awesomepossum
Dominic, is there a particular role that got away? – A role you really wanted, but wasn’t cast in?

Dominic, how was it kissing Lucy? xD
Dom: so so
Dom: just kidding, it was lovely
What was the hardest scene to do and why? Which scenes were the most fun to do?
Dom: There is a scene in the middle for me, you will know when you see it
Dominic sherwood how was it like to play with fire? And did you just get a new facebook?
Dom: it was great, and yes, we just got verified
Dominic, how old where you when you first got into acting?
Dom: Its always what I’ve wanted to do, but i started doing it for a living when i was 19
If each of you were picked as tribute for the hunger games, which person on the cast would you pick as your ally and why?
Dom: Danila, isn’t it obvious why?
Had you heard of/read Vampire Academy before being cast for your roles? Really looking forward to seeing it next week!! Thank you!!
Dom: not before the audition but after the first one i started researching
How hard is it to portray characters when the characters are already so known and loved? Do you worry about the fans not liking it? (Don’t worry. I couldn’t have asked for a better cast.)
Zoey: It’s vital to honor the fans, but we’ll never make everybody happy. Having any expectation of reactions will just result in us being upset. I think the fact that Richelle really enjoyed the film says a lot.
If you were a moroi, which elemental power would you like to have?
Zoey: Spirit, of course.
will there be lots of blood?
Zoey: just enough
Any awkward moments?
Zoey: For me? Always.
Just wanted to say congrats on your roles and I can’t wait to see you all on the big screen in a week!
