Zoey is absolutely gorgeous in this Just Jared Spotlight of the Week photoshoot!

She also did an amazing interview, here’s our favorite parts!

Just Jared: Tell us what drew you to Vampire Academy. What was so special about this movie, since there are quite a number of vampire shows and movies?
I don’t really feel there has been a big vampire film recently, although it’s a subject and a genre that has definitely been explored and in some people’s eyes perhaps overdone. I haven’t done extensive research, but I don’t think there’s been too many vampire films as funny as this. It’s always funny when people ask me why I was attracted to it because what most people wouldn’t understand is… I don’t go out and go, “Oh I want that part,” and then all of a sudden I get it, you know? I’m constantly auditioning all the time, even while I’m working, to get a job that I like.

What did you prepare for most, action scenes or emotional scenes?
I would say that I prepared more for the emotional stuff because I couldn’t prepare for the action stuff because half of it, I would be taught the action sequences like ten minutes before, which is even more terrifying. I’m like, “How the f–k do you use nunchucks?” I really have no idea. That was definitely interesting.

Okay, topic change. Were you named after anyone?
My sister actually named me. My mother was having the talk and telling her, “Okay, you’re going to have a sibling. I don’t know if it’s going to be a girl or a boy.” And usually kids have a pretty bad reaction. My mom was quite nervous and my sister said, “Oh yeah, that’s Zoey,” and walked away. My mom was like, “well, that was a really crazy, frightening moment. I guess my child’s name is Zoey.” Whether I was a female or male, I was going to be named what I am. And it means life, so does my Hebrew name.

What turns you on creatively, spiritually, or emotionally?
I think giving, or being given permission, to do or feel the way I do, and not be told to do anything otherwise. I feel very lucky to be surrounded by people who at least, from my perspective don’t try to change me. I think as an artist, that’s wildly important and vital in a creative and growing process. And that goes for love as well, with family, with relationships, or with friends.

What’s the most romantic thing you’ve done?
I feel like a very romantic person in all aspects, not just the one specific thing that most people would think, which is in dates. With relationships, I try to do little things that are romantic like this morning, I made breakfast in bed. I don’t know, I try to do nice things all the time.

Do you have a favorite game, board game, or video game?
I used to love The Sims, but I had to let it go because it was distracting me from my real life, from creating and developing real relationships, which didn’t even matter to me at that point because Sims were more important.

“Vampire Academy” star Zoey Deutch has landed the female lead role in “Midnight Rider,” the indie biopic of Allman Brothers Band leader Gregg Allman, according to The Wrap. Tyson Ritter, Wyatt Russell and William Hurt are also part of the cast.

Randall Miller is directing the drama featuring Ritter as Allman and the film will chronicle two major points in the singer’s life and career: the first formation of the Allman Brothers Band, and later, the band’s explosion onto the music scene and Allman’s struggle to clean up his drug and alcohol abuse. Deutch is lining up the role of Mae, a small town girl turned Allman Brothers Band groupie who becomes Gregg’s love interest in the early days of the band. “Zoey’s freshness and intensity blows me away. She is both young and wise. I can’t wait to work with her,” Miller tells the trade. Filming begins next month.

Zoey looks adorable on these behind the scenes pictures for Just Jared Spotlight of the Week photoshoot!

JUST JARED – Zoey Deutch gets the royal treatment from our glam squad in this exclusive behind the scenes pic from the latest edition of the Just Jared Spotlight of the Week photo series.

The 19-year-old actress stars in the highly anticipated new film Vampire Academy, which is set to hit theaters on February 7.

In our interview with Zoey, she told us why she thinks her movie stands out from other films in the vampire genre.

“To be quite honest, I don’t really feel there has been a big vampire film recently, although it is a subject and a genre that has definitely been explored and in some people’s eyes perhaps overdone. I haven’t done extensive research, but I don’t think there’s been too many vampire films as funny as this, or as I hope it’s perceived,” Zoey said.

Be sure to check back with us on Thursday for our full exclusive Zoey Deutch photo shoot and interview for our brand new Just Jared Spotlight of the Week!

We’re just about a month away from Vampire Academy hitting the big screen (yay!) and we had yet another chance to chat with its star Zoey Deutch. We dug super deep into the movie last time we spoke with her, but this time, we got to know her a little bit better!

That’s right, we found out what SHE fangirls over (it might surprise you), what she thinks of the name of her fanbase — aka Zobots — and much, much more. Click through the gallery to find out 10 EXCLUSIVE Zoey secrets, and tell us if you’re excited for Vampire Academy — out on February 14! — in the comments!

She Fangirls Over…Anchorman?!
When we asked what she fangirls over, she said, “It’s not YA, but Anchorman. I am a very, very avid Anchorman fan. I’m just putting it out into the universe,” adding, “I was in Atlanta for some reason, and they were filming it there and I almost tried to sneak onto the set. And someone had to tell me that was a bad idea. I wanted to, but I didn’t want to get arrested. I should have tried to sneak on. I wanted that story. But it didn’t happen. Maybe if they make a third I’ll figure out a way.”

She Thinks VA Has Mean Girls Potential
When we asked if she went into making VA with a Mean Girls mindset, she said, “No, I don’t think so. I mean I think the only thing that reflects that is Mark Waters has an amazing sense of humor and he really knows how to capture that. He knows beats, and he gets that, and he’s smart about that. So in that sense it really translates, and is very similar. Other than that, it just, you know, it’s a very different movie. But Mark Waters is great with humor, so that is definitely similar.

Vampire Academy comes out on Valentine’s Day, which is great, because Valentine’s Day isn’t always awesome and this year it absolutely, 100%, without a doubt will be. But while you’re kicking back in the movie theater nibbling on that heart-shaped box of chocolates and watching a big-screen adaptation you’ve been looking forward to since the very day it was announced, said movie’s star, Zoey Deutch will, well, not be. Her grand plans for February 14th? “I’ll be shaking in my boots waiting to hear how the movie goes. But you know, most people don’t look forward to Valentine’s Day anyway, so it’s fine.”

Thing is, Zoey has no reason to be nervous about the world’s reaction to her highly-anticipated flick. Vampire Academy, which is basically Twilight meets Harry Potter meets Mean Girls, is from the screenwriter behind Heathers, aka the single best high school flick of the eighties. Plus, the YA series it’s based on has been wiiiiildly successful (like millions-upon-millions-of-copies-sold successful). Oh, and? There’s been a big vampire-sized hole in our hearts since Bella and Edward faded from our lives, and this is just the movie to fill it.
