The Vampire Academy movie added three actors to the cast, and they will play Mia, Karp, and Jesse.

Sami Gayle, who can currently be seen on Blue Bloods, has landed the role of Mia in The Vampire Academy movie. Mia is the enemy of Lissa and, by default, Rose. Mia is bitter over a situation with Lissa’s brother and therefore sets out to destroy Lissa. Do you think Sami Gayle is right for the role of Mia? She certainly looks younger than she is, like Rose likes to point out in the book!

Other new cast members announced this evening are Claire Foy, who will play Karp, and Ashley Charles, who will play Jesse.

Filming will begin in London the week of May 27. The cast currently includes Lucy Fry, Zoey Deutch, and Danila Kozlovski as the leads. Cameron Monaghan and Olga Kurylenko have also been added. Mark Waters is directing from a script by Daniel Waters.

Vampire Academy: Blood Sisters is the first in a series of six novels that have all landed on the New York Times Bestsellers list. There is also a spin off series, Bloodlines, in which the third novel has been released.

How do you think the cast is shaping up so far?

    preger nailed it

    • Jen_Lamoureux

      I am seriously impressed with this cast. I can’t wait to see more things once filming starts

      • zara

        jen, I completely agree. I’m usually okay with casting choices for most book to movie adaptations but I’m incredibly happy with this one. preger says they are putting a lot of thought and time into this and it shows

    • Ebony

      He most certainly did. I am so impressed with the cast. Normally there will be one or two that aren’t right but so far they’re all perfect.

    If Mason looks like that, I wonder what Christian will look like. I hope they take into account that he is a Royal, not as important as Lissa, but he should have a poise of royalty around him.

    I am excited :)

    i think everyone is perfect except lucy fry for lissa!! lissa should be more beautiful and elegant none of which i find in lucy fry!

    • Michelle S

      I couldn’t agree more! I am so happy with the cast, except for Lissa. I just feel like she doesn’t have enough of the look, and considering she’s only been in small productions, I’m afraid her acting won’t be enough for such a strong role, too.

      • http://www.facebook.com/Anguhluh.duh Anguhluh McKee

        I’ve seen her in those small roles and she is quite a great actress. She was leaps and bounds more believable and talented than her co-stars in that alien surf girls show. She is ready for the big time and I couldn’t imagine a better Lissa. Plus, her not being a huge star already, her other roles won’t conflict with us visualizing her as our Princess

    • http://www.facebook.com/Anguhluh.duh Anguhluh McKee

      I couldn’t disagree more! I think she is drop dead gorgeous and elegant, if you’ve seen the commercial wear she is modeling the boots it is like she is using compulsion on you. You’ve got to do research before you judge and wait til she’s in character (;

    • Ebony

      Lucy is perfect as Lissa. That is all.

  • Jasmine Johansson

    Dammit, I leave London on May 27! Anyway, this looks good!

  • Wishy

    I just hope the movie delivers! I loved the book and have read the series twice, and I know occasionally the movie scene just isn’t right for some books. But I do hope it does!!!

  • Mandy

    Ashley Charles who is playing Jesse is an actor not an actress. It says 3 Actresses have been added as Mia, Karp and Jesse. Jesse is a guy in VA, Jesse Zeklos a Royal Moroi.

      it says three actors not actresses

    i really think that their choice of rose was really bad cause she looks too skinny and not…. rose like

    • http://www.facebook.com/Anguhluh.duh Anguhluh McKee

      Have you seen recent pics of her? She worked out 6 days a week since she was cast and she put on weight as well as built muscle. She looks very rose like! Look for the race to erase MS 2013 pictures of her, she is wearing a white dress

      • Ebony

        Don’t even bother Ang. You know what the haters are like. Even Richelle herself saying that Zoey is the perfect Rose isn’t enough for them.

  • Sia

    I’m excited about this book but there aren’t any A list or even B list stars. Hope it’s good !

    • http://www.facebook.com/Anguhluh.duh Anguhluh McKee

      Technically there is, our Dimitri is over in Russia!

    • Ebony

      I think that that is actually a good thing.

    at last, some good lookin’ people._.

    • Ebony

      They’re all good looking…

  • Uzmanick

    OMG.. I am so excited.. I can’t wait to know the rest of the cast.. Even though I didn’t like Sami Goyle that much… But I am willing to consider it… I love the cast… :)

  • Madeline

    Is this going to air on the CW?

    • http://www.facebook.com/Anguhluh.duh Anguhluh McKee

      It is a movie, not a series. It will premier in theaters

  • Penny

    I think the cast choice is great! I disagree with the comment below about Lissa (LucyFry). I think she will make a stunning Lissa as she has a mystique about her, and is gorgeous. Plus, she is a talented actress. Good luck to all the cast with the filming!

  • Sanna

    It’s Sonya Karp, not just Karp.

  • Raven

    Okay here’s the thing, Mason and Dimitri are spot on…everyone else is a big NO bleh Rose is not nearly as pretty as I expected and Lissa is not nearly as pale and elegant as she is portrayed to be. Mia doesnt look anything like the b*tch she should be and Jesse looks like a druggy! Oh no. >.<

    • Graciie

      Just wait till they get in costume. They’re actors, they’re rained to change everything about them! It’s going to be perfect, you’ll see :)

  • Ebony

    As a major VAddict fangirl let me just say this: The entire cast is ABSOLUTELY PERFECT! Marci Liroff (CD) couldn’t have chosen better. I think the perfection of this cast goes to show just how closely the script must be to the book. My fellow T.O.V and I are beyond excited!!

  • ElizaBeta

    perfect cast! <3

  • SpiritWitch120

    Ahhh. I live in London. Might have to pop over for a visit to the set!!

    I love the cast expect for Mia. Mia is supposed to have blond ringlets and blue eyes.

  • http://www.facebook.com/kjlecours Kate Lecours

    I’m not so sure about their Mia Choice. I’m sure she’ll be great, but their no resemblance from the description from the book. Porsalin doll, blonde curls, and blue eyes.

  • http://www.facebook.com/kjlecours Kate Lecours

    Okay. I was wrong. She does look like a doll. lol She be great lol

  • http://www.facebook.com/claudiajustine25 Claudia Privitera

    i think they’ve done a rather good job, of course some are a little bit off from my imagination but that’s natural and they all fit to the actual character descriptions. they all have potential i’m not going to judge till i see the film but i’m pretty psyched i’m very happy with casting so far, it has potential!
