Sarah Hyland is making a move into Twilight country.

The Modern Family star plays a vampire in the upcoming Vampire Academy.

"I have fangs," she told me at the Weinstein Company-Netflix Golden Globes party. "It was so much fun. We filmed in London and it was my first time in London."

But it also means she had to undergo a makeunder. "I wore fake pimples," Hyland said. "It was my first time for that, too. They're like press-on tattoo ones."

And then there was the stuff that really hurt.

"It was the first time I had ever done training and stunt fighting and wire work," Hyland said.


Hyland laughed that she costar Zoey Deutch are "very thin creatures, [but] she worked out a lot longer than I did so she was definitely stronger than I was."

"I was really trying hard," she said. "But I say if you're get hurt, you're not going 110 percent. I was like, 'If I don't come out of this bruised or bleeding, I didn't do my job."

Vampire Academy hits theaters on Feb. 14.
