Jamie Campbell Bower in The Mortal Instruments, Joins Lily Collins
Will the real Jace Wayland please stand up? You’ll have to use your imagination (but fantasy readers are good at that) and pretend that Camelot actor, Jamie Campbell Bower is standing. Why? Because he just won the star making role of Jace, Clary’s Shadowhunter in the big screen adaptation of The Mortal Instruments (which will presumably depict the events of City of Bones, book one in the YA urban fantasy series).
Does Bower look familiar to you? He should! He is King Aurthur in the STARZ series. He portrayed Volturi member, Caius, in the Twilight Saga (yes, another YA fantasy staple). He’s even Young Gellert Grindelwald in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, parts one and two. Remember we told you he was in the running for this highly coveted role. I do fear fans will buck against this casting decision, but not everybody loved Robert Pattinson when they first learned of his casting as Edward Cullen. Some of those initial haters came around, didn’t they?
Not familiar with the series? Well, when Deadline delivered the exciting exclusive, they offered this synopsis of the plot:
He’ll play Jace Wayland, starring alongside Lily Collins, who’ll play the lead heroine Clary Fray. She has The Sight, and can see both demons and Shadowhunters. Jace is one of the best of the latter. When Clary’s mother is abducted, she is forced to learn about her bloodline and abilities in order to get her mother back.
Abduction and Grimm: Snow White actress, Lily Collins, is Clary Fray, our central character. Oh yes, and that was Bower in Tim Burton’s Sweeny Todd as well! And yes, he is British!
Mortal Instruments readers, consider this morsel: Jamie Campbell is also a JC = Jace! Food for thought!
