Sarah Hyland Dishes on New Vampire Academy Movie

Sarah Hyland has been trying hard, but thankfully not Miley Cyrus hard, to shed her (somewhat) innocent image created by the hit show, Modern Family, in which she stars as the middle child. So, what better way to achieve that goal than becoming a vamp tramp as part of the new movie “Vampire Academy”? “Vampire Academy” is based on the series of books by Richelle Mead. Sarah Hyland will star as Natalie Dashkov, the daughter of one of the school’s leaders.

The movie tells the story of two friends who attend a school for vampires, in which Sarah Hyland and her friend “battle the mysterious forces of the evil Moroi who are set on destroying the Princess’s bloodline.” So, “Vampire Academy” attempts to mesh the school environment of “Harry Potter” with the usual vampire sexiness, pretty much.

Like when fans first experienced the glory of “Harry Potter” on film, some “Vampire Academy” fans fear the transition from book to movie will leave out certain bits, according to MTV. But Sarah Hyland, who is a huge fan of “Harry Potter”, believes that “Vampire Academy” fans obviously shouldn’t worry. Of course, we all know that this happens. Ever read and then watch, say, the Lord of the Rings series? Or, well, any book and movie combo ever made in any period of history from any part of the universe?

“There’s always going to be something that’s missing… but ‘Vampire Academy’ actually stays really true to the book.”

The nude scenes from the “Vampire Academy” books in movie form seem to be a subject that makes Hyland squirm a little. she simply stated, “I wasn’t on the set those days. But, they’re pretty sexy people.” Is it just me or does it seem like she regrets that a little bit?

    Sarah hyland plays the oldest child in her family on modern family dumbass

  • Fact check mofo

    Sarah Hyland’s character isn’t even one of the leads. Her character is not one of the two friends who as you said, “battle the mysterious forces of the evil Moroi who are set on destroying the Princess’s bloodline.”

    Geez. A quick google would tell you that.

    Thanks for the article.. Our VA family really appreciates the effort.. but there are some facts, which are wrong… Moroi aren’t evil, they are the good living vampires… Strigoi are the evil undead ones who kill moroi alongwith any living person… :)

    Love, VA fans

    There are a few details wrong with this article. Moroi are not evil, in fact, Sarah Hyland is playing a Moroi. Second, her dad isn’t a founder of the school. He is, however, part of one of the royal families. And Sarah also isnt starring or one of the friends fighting evil. All of this being said, we understand the misconception… Sarah is the most well known of the young cast. We in the Vampire Academy fandom are happy she is playing Natalie because she is very lovely and talented.
