The Vampire Academy: Blood Sisters has cast its Mason Ashford! Welcome Cameron Monaghan.

Mason is a dhampir like Rose. He also attends St. Vladimir’s and befriends Rose. The two have a rocky relationship throughout much of the series as Mason is attracted to Rose who has a connection with someone else. Mason helps Rose out frequently, even though they are both new guardians.

Zoey Deutch will be playing the role of Rose while Lucy Fry will portray Lissa. Danila Kovzolski will take on Dimitri.

It was announced earlier today that filming will begin on May 27.

About The Vampire Academy

The Vampire Academy focuses on two best friends, Lissa and Rose. Lissa is a vampire princess, and Rose is her half human bodyguard. Two are required to attend the secret boarding school, St. Vladimir’s Academy. Rose and Lissa become enmeshed in forbidden romance, the Academy’s ruthless social scene, and unspeakable nighttime rituals. But they must be careful lest the Strigoi–the world’s fiercest and most dangerous vampires–make Lissa one of them forever.

Is Cameron the right guy for Mason? Tell us your thoughts in the comments!

Monaghan was most recently mentioned as being in contention to play Augustus Waters in The Fault in Our Stars movie (the role went to Ansel Elgort earlier today).

    i pictured Mason as a little stockier. I’m surprised!

    • Katie

      Me too! I pictured him looking like Shawn White. lol He looks too serious to play Mason!

      • Charlotte

        Dont worry he is actually pretty buff. In the latest season of Shameless he’s like REALLY fit

  • Amanda

      Each person imagines the characters in a different way, they would have to cast 1000 different actors for the same role to satisfy everyone’s imagination. He is red-haired, that’s how the book descrided him, the rest is made up but each fan’s mind. The important thing is they are casting actors because they are the best portraying these characters, not because they are famous or things like that.

        I remember reading post from a year or two ago and they were all fans that wanted famous actors to play the roles but I always thought it would be better not to other wise I am going to be thinking about that famous actor as his famous character aka: Ian Somerhalder will from now on will always be Damon Salvator never Adrian Ivashkov.

          oooo but adrian and damon are so similar (in some ways) and he looks perfect to boot ;)….I think he’s the one famous actor I could abide with…..though I agree with getting mostly fresh faces for the movies ^-^

    This is the way I picture Mason to look. Good job!!

  • Kate the great

    When I first saw this picture of him I didn’t think he was perfect because I imagined Mason with a bit longer hair. But now that I recognize him from Shameless I think he is perfect, and a great actor to boot! I have been waiting for this movie for the last 3 years, so far so good for casting. I hope they make it amazing!

    I think he’s to young. I figured Mason would have more masculinity with just a little bit of boyish good looks. Hopefully he shocks me and is an amazing Mason.

    I haven’t heard of him before, but his looks are dead on! And if the casting directors and Richelle think he’s up for the job, then he’s perfect!!

  • Iris

    Thank God!
    Finally someone that looks alike his character!

  • ladyraven

    Love it. So far love casting of Mason and Dimitri. So – So with Lissa and Rose. Time will tell! Olga Kurlenko is good as headmistress or there is one other role I think she could have played… :)
