Okay, before reading this post you should know that I have a girl-crush on Lily Collins. I loved her as Clary, I think she is a very talented actress and despite all the blahblah about her not being a red haired or her not being the proper shade or dyed red, she made a wonderful Clary. Remember: she was Cassandra’s first and personal choice cast for the movie.
Filling Lily Collins shoes has to be hard…
Having said that, our new Clary Fray will be played by Katherine McNamara.
I am guessing you can notice my lack of enthusiasm. I am trying really hard not to be too judgmental before hand. I know, we should wait to see them in character and all that jazz. But so far, I am rather disappointed with Jace and Clary choices, they are just not my Jace and Clary.
What I have read on goodreads discussions so far are positive comments – some people is already getting the balloons and the confetti out!
…Sorry guys! Don’t hate me too much, I wish I was happy with the new cast but I am not :/ (for now)
The big question is will they have CHEMISTRY? And more important, will Katherine have more chemistry with Dominic (Jace) than Lily Collins had with Jamie Campbell Bower? (Jamie and Lily were igniting the cinema screen, boy). Hum… Cassandra was asked about Simon and Clary and she has no doubts.
Let’s have faith in Cassandra! If she is involved, everything will be okay *says crossing fingers*.
Our cast is filling up! A few days ago producer @McG delivered the new faces for Simon and Isabelle …And today we were supposed to find who will play Clary but seems like we won’t be that lucky. Tomorrow? We will see my friends. We will see… damn you McG. So, I am glad to introduce you (if you still didn’t know about them) Alberto Rosende and Emeraude Toubia.
For now we can just fight each other about why and why not we like/love/hate these actors. Which, let me tell you, is kind of pointless… I mean, we better wait to see how well they get into character right? And also, how ABC Family handles the production and the script.
Remember the Premonition series? I really thought Amy A. Bartol was going to leave us like that, with the series unfinished and the last book not published… But no!
Amy herself has communicated the good news, via her blog on Goodreads. It is quite sad though that she only posted this info as a “note” at the end of a Kricket series post. But ah well… at least she said something right? (Screenshot from her post below)
That’s it! I don’t want to build a lot of expectations about when the release date would be, but at least we know she is working on it. An update more than welcome!
Now my dear Ms Bartol, please put your writing pants on, and go for it!
BTW if you have not read the rest of The Premonition series books, check my review and give it a thought here the link
McG has spoken! Shadowhunters TV show has a face. And it’s Jace’s.
Apparently, there are not enough new actors out there.
Seems like ABC Family has decided to bring one of the main characters on the Vampire Academy Movie to play our Jace on the new Shadowhunters show.
Okay. Breathe… time for the uppercases. WHAT?! REALLY? So, dear McGwhatever, you are telling us there is not a single new face out there for Jace. RIGHT. Not only that, but you have to cast an actor from the another franchise movie fiasco.
Don’t get me wrong, is not that I don’t fancy him or that I think he is not a good actor, it’s just that… I don’t know, I am not feeling it. He is definitely not my Jace. EVEN MORE, I say he would make a much more better Sebastian. Ha! That’s the Jace they are giving me… Quoting Ross from Friends “holy moly are we in a pickle now”.
I was just asking for new faces! And neither new nor good (for me).
Unless you live under a rock, I am sure you know this by now but, THE MORTAL INSTRUMENTS IS GETTING A TV SERIES.
Forgive my uppercases, but I felt the need of making crystal clear my shouting excitement. So, here I go again. SHADOWHUNTERS TV SHOW, BBBBY THE ANGEL!
Okay, now it’s out my system.
The ones in charge of bringing the shadowhunter world back to our screens will be ABC Family network. So far, we know that the cast is work in progress, however, they are supposed to start shooting in May. Which is happening soon, literally next month. Mmmm… suspicious? Ya-ha!! My guess is that there’s not so much work left to do, but just so I give the “official” facts. No cast yet, shooting to start by mid May in Toronto.
If you are interested on every tiny detail about production and casting then you should follow @McGsWonderland on twitter. He is really broadcasting every piece of info that is out there. Cassandra Clare herself is following and retwitting so, there’s nothing!
And last but not least…
We’ll get some important news on Monday. BY THE ANGEL, tell us ALREADY!!
