1. Aussie Pride! We couldn't be MORE thrilled that one of Vampire Academy's biggest fan bases is represented by Lucy. That's right, Aussies, we love us some Richelle Mead and her amazing series is a big seller here and Lucy's role will give us an extra dash of Aussie pride when the movie hits cinemas.
2. The Ethereal Aussie. Again, not to harp on this Aussie factor, but we seem to specialise in those ethereal, classy, almost regal actresses. Think of Nicole Kidman, Naomi Watts, Mia Wasikowska, Cate Blanchett - they all possess that combination of frail yet tough as nails spirit that our Dragomir princess grows into.
5. Instant Reaction. While Zoey's reaction was great, we LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Lucy's reaction to learning she had secured the role of Lissa! In fact, many fans commented that this was the photo that gave them the strongest Lissa vibes and we agree, Lucy's inherent sweetness and charm on full display
