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?
