Dominic Sherwood’s Vampire Academy Role Shaped Through Audition Process

To land the role of Christian Ozera in Vampire Academy, Dominic Sherwood auditioned six times for director Mark Waters. It’s a challenging process that’s just part of the job for many actors, so it’s good to know that Sherwood keeps things in perspective.

“I think my passion is performing,” said Sherwood, who grew up in Kent, England. “Working on a movie like this is truly incredible but if I’m performing for a living, it could be anywhere. I could be in a theater in London playing to 50 people every night – I’d be able to die happy because I know I’m doing what I love and I never gave up on it. I was always there.”

The movie, co-starring Zooey Deutch and Lucy Fry, is based on the popular novel penned by Richelle Mead. Click on the media bar below to hear the actor explain how the audition process helped him shape Christian Ozera (he mentions director Mark Waters and writer Daniel Waters in the clip):
