“I think with the responsibility comes a huge motivation,” said Kieron Moore, who plays Guardian trainer Dimitri Belikov. “We all feel super passionate about doing this. I think it will show through the screen, hopefully.”
Nieves added, “I think there’s a little bit of pressure, but it’s also just an honor for us to like portray these characters that were so loved by these fans.”
But those expecting the series to be just another teen vampire show can think again. André Dae Kim—who portrays vampire Christian Ozera—told E! News, “I think if you’re coming into this thinking it’s gonna be one type of genre, you might be a little surprised, I think pleasantly surprised.”
