I’ve been obsessed with Richelle Mead‘s Vampire Academy novels since my early search for something to fill the Twilight-shaped hole in my reading heart. It’s the story of two BFFs — half-vampire badass bodyguard in training Rose and vampire princess Lissa — who share a telepathic link that becomes both a blessing and a curse in their dangerous lives attending St. Vladimir’s boarding school. For some of us felt like a long wait since then for the movie to come together, but the shoot just wrapped in London last week, and Vampire Academy: Blood Sisters is set to come out February 14, 2014. To whet our appetite, Mead sent us this exclusive photo from the set. Let’s take a closer look.
Just seeing the marker for 11, the church where Christian and Lissa meet up, or 26, the gym where Dimitri kicks Rose’s butt in the sexiest way possible, is giving me chills. And I kinda love how absolutely normal this map is. Not a drop of blood on the thing.
Some of the stars of this movie are so new, we had to rely on their Facebook pages to get good photos. But there are also a few familiar faces — Sarah Hyland, Jolie Richardson and Gabriel Byrne — taking on somewhat minor roles. Will they all soon become the next big thing? We can’t wait to find out. Here’s a little primer on who’s who:
