Keisha stars in Vampire

Keisha Castle-Hughes, 20, is following in the bloody footsteps of fellow New Zealander Anna Paquin, starring in the film Vampire, the first English-language film of Japanese cult director Shunji Iwai. According to Empire, the film stars Kevin Zegers (Transamerica, Dawn of the Dead), as a vampire high-school teacher with a penchant for feasting on emo girls. “We’re guessing that Castle-Hughes is a student rather than a fellow teacher, but she’ll be joined onscreen by Kristin Kreuk (Street Fighter), Rachael Leigh Cook (Nancy Drew) and Adelaide Clemens (Wolverine).” Shooting has just begun on Vampire in Vancouver. Earlier this year, Castle-Hughes guest-starred as the ‘Creator’ in the American weekly series, Legend of the Seeker.
