Peacock celebrated the launch of VAMPIRE ACADEMY with a virtual premiere event featuring the cast and producers. 

VAMPIRE ACADEMY is from executive producers Julie Plec and Marguerite MacIntyre comes a story of friendship, romance and danger. In a world of privilege and glamour, two young women’s friendship transcends their strikingly different classes as they prepare to complete their education and enter vampire society. One as a powerful Royal, the other a half-vampire Guardian trained to protect against the savage ‘Strigoi’ who threaten to tear their society apart. That is, if Royal infighting doesn’t do the job first.  

Participants: Creators/Showrunners/EPs Julie Plec and Marguerite MacIntyre, and stars Sisi Stringer, Daniela Nieves, Kieron Moore, Andre Dae Kim, Jonetta Kaiser, J. August Richards, Andrew Liner, Mia McKenna-Bruce, Rhian Blundell, and Anita-Joy Uwajeh  

CAST: 

  • Sisi Stringer (Mortal Kombat) plays “Rose Hathaway,” a vampire-human hybrid known as a Dhampir. Fiery and outspoken, Rose is a true fighter in spirit and in practice.      
  • Daniela Nieves (Snowfall) plays “Lissa Dragomir,” a Royal Moroi vampire. Growing up the younger sister to the heir apparent, Princess Vasilisa Dragomir is a carefree, kind-hearted, royal princess uninterested in the political machinations of the Royal Court or the hypocrisy of Moroi royal society.   
  • Kieron Moore (Sex Education) plays “Dimitri Belikov,” the model Dhampir Guardian: lethal, disciplined, discreet, and totally committed to his role as bodyguard to the ruling Moroi, the “good,” mortal vampires of his world.   
  • Andre Dae Kim(Locke & Key) plays “Christian Ozera,” a thoughtful, intelligent Royal Moroi vampire and the pariah of the school and royal court due to his parents’ unforgivable societal sins.   
  • J. August Richards (Agents of Shield) plays “Victor Dashkov.” A Royal Moroi vampire, Victor has dedicated his life to the well-being of not just of his husband and two adopted daughters, but to his entire community, Royal or not.   
  • Anita-Joy Uwajeh (Lucky Man) plays “Tatiana Vogel.” A Royal Moroi vampire who’s new in town, Tatiana is a political underdog who slowly takes the royal court by storm as she boldly makes a play for the crown.   
  • Mia Mckenna-Bruce (Persuasion) plays “Mia Karp,” a student at St. Vladimir’s Academy. Witty, cutting, and just the right kind of ruthless when necessary, non-Royal Mia has a long-term plan to social climb her way into the ranks of royalty, with all the privilege and freedom that entails.    
  • Rhian Blundell (Nobody Girl) plays “Meredith Beckham,” a smart, strong-willed Dhampir who is a keen observer, which makes her an excellent strategist and a valuable asset.   
  • Jonetta Kaiser (Tales) plays “Sonya Karp.” Quiet, careful and odd, Sonya prefers to spend her time in the library or her garden and is taken by surprise when a Dhampir Guardian named Mikhail shows interest in her, a relationship that will expose both the brightest and darkest parts of her heart.   
  • Andrew Liner (Grown-ish) plays “Mason Ashford.” Charming, loyal and popular, Mason is Rose’s main competition in the quest to become the number one Guardian-in-training.
