We finally added high quality scans of Zoey in the latest issue of Untitled magazine and make check out their Q&A with Zoey below.
Zoey Deutch’s destiny within the world of acting could be construed as preordained. The daughter of actress Lea Thompson (Back to The Future) and director Howard Deutch (Pretty in Pink, Some Kind of Wonderful), one might say the nineteen-year-old was groomed for entertainment. Starring roles in films such as this year’s Vampire Academy have put the young actress firmly on the map. Yet her beginnings, she graciously admits, were more humble. “I used to make really embarrassing, ridiculous short films with my cousin and sister. We would play whatever characters we could possibly conjure up,” Zoey remembers. “I would steal my mom’s jelly boobs from when she was in a sitcom and they would put in fake padding boobs… and put them in my dresses so I could resemble Barbie, which was upsetting in so many different ways.” Her first professional job on The Disney Channel’s The Suite Life Zack and Cody wasn’t perfect either. “I was so bad at it, so uneducated about terminology and industry etiquette, and understanding people’s jobs.” Riding the wave of her blockbuster hit Vampire Academy, Zoey will star in Cover Girl as well as Good Kids, both slated for release in 2015.
Indira Cesarine: You grew up with a very creative family with your dad being a director. Do you remember the first time you were in front of the camera?
Zoey Deutch: I used to make these really embarrassing, ridiculous, short films with my cousin and sister. We would play whatever characters we could possibly conjure up. I particularly was always interested, for some reason, in the Jessica Barbie doll character, which is so drastically different from who I am today. Hilariously, I would steal my mom’s jelly boobs from when she was in a sitcom and they would put in fake padding boobs. I would steal them and put them in my dresses and stuff, so I could resemble Barbie, which is upsetting in so many different ways! I remember that. It was all home videos we used to do. Nothing professional until I was about fifteen and a half.
JUSTJARED – Zoey Deutch has landed the lead female role in the upcoming movie That’s What I’m Talking About!
The movie is the acclaimed director Richard Linklater‘s highly anticipated follow up to his hit film Boyhood, which received tons of rave reviews this summer.
In That’s What I’m Talking About, Zoey will be playing the lead female character Beverly alongside such hunky actors as Tyler Hoechlin, Ryan Guzman, and Glen Powell. While the plot details aren’t available yet, the movie will center on the lives of baseball players on and off the field in the ’80s.
Also on Zoey‘s slate is the upcoming film Good Kids, which she just wrapped up filming, alongside Ashley Judd and Demian Bichir.

As said in our previous post, ‘Vampire Academy’ producers want to launch an IndieGoGo campaign to raise money for the sequel: ‘Frostbite’. If you want to help, click here for more information.
MTV – Are you ready to remember just how much high school sucked again? Good, because now you have a chance to help make a sequel to this year’s “Vampire Academy” a reality.
The producers behind the first film are this week launching an IndieGoGo campaign to raise money for “Frostbite: A Vampire Academy Film.” If fans contribute $1.5 million, the financial backers will be convinced that there’s enough fan demand for the movie and fund the rest of the production cost.
The campaign launches this Wednesday, August 6.
Producer Mike Preger said that the decision to move forward with the crowdfunding campaign was totally motivated by the fans.
“The fans mean everything to us,” he said in an email to MTV News. “We decided to move forward with ‘Frostbite’ because of the fans, and we want to give them the purest book to film adaptation possible. We have a script by Piers Ashworth [screenwriter of "St. Trinian's"] that does just that. We want to give them exactly what they expect.”
At the end of June, Zoey played Emily in the play ‘Barophobia’ during week 4 of the 22nd Annual Young Playwrights Festival at Stella Adler Theatre in Los Angeles.

BYRDIE – A gorgeous hairstyle doesn’t just happen. There’s usually an entire infrastructure behind it, and, more often than not, the glue that holds it all together is the bobby pin. It’s the resident, pint-sized powerhouse of any beauty toolbox, but it’s rarely given the credit it deserves. We decided it’s time to showcase the bobby pin’s versatility. Of course, a bobby pin without hair to pin does very little to help our cause. Luckily, actress Zoey Deutch graciously agreed to have her tresses tousled and pinned.
The brunette beauty, who’s graced both the big and small screens, told us she usually keeps her look clean and simple (lately she’s been loving a laidback low ponytail). But in the very capable hands of celebrity makeup artist Andre Sarmiento and hairstylist and co-owner of Ramirez|Tran Salon Anh Co Tran, Deutch let us get her all dolled up.
Flip through to see the step-by-step instructions on how to create three totally chic (and insanely easy) hairstyles using only three bobby pins!
Zoey is in the June issue of Vanity Fair magazine and you can now find the photoshoot in our gallery.
