Now that I feel like we have probably all of the casting news and lots of fun screenshots and pictures, I want to talk about this exciting TV adaptation of The Mortal Instruments. Let me start out by saying that I’m so freaking excited for this show, I think the majority of the cast looks fantastic and I hope it’s better then the movie!
Let’s start out with the cast.
Clary Fray: Katherine MacNamara
Jace Wayland: Dom Sherwood
Simon Lewis: Alberto Rosende
Isabelle Lightwood: Emeraude Toubia
Alec Lightwood: Matthew Daddario
Luke Garroway: Isaiah Mustafa
Valentine Morgenstern: Alan Van Sprang
Magnus Bane: Harry Shum Jr.
Jocelyn Fray: Maxim Roy
Raphael: David Castro
Camille: Kaitlyn Leeb
Meliorn: Jade Hassoune
Hodge Starkweather: Jon Cor
Like I said before, I like most of the cast! There are some things where I’m a little like “um… okayyy?” nut for the most part, they’re good.First of all, I know Hodge is close to Valentine and Jocelyn’s age, but this guy looks really young! I kind of like it though. Camille isn’t really at all how I imagined her, but we’ll have to wait and see how good her acting is. I always pictured her as a bit older and pale white skin, blonde with the classic red lip, but you can’t have everything. Also, I’m kinda ticked off that Valentine is bald because they really messed up his hair in the movie and I just really wanted my white hair. I’m really pleased with some characters like Jocelyn, Alec, Magnus, Raphael, Jace, Clary, Simon, ect! They look the part!
We’ve gotten plenty of other pictures from the last couple weeks of filming and they look great! If you would like to stay updated with the filming and see lots of pictures as they’re tweeted/instagram-ed/whatever, follow TMI Source! I honestly have pretty high expectations for the show and I’m so excited to see the show on TV. At this current moment, I think the only thing I’m concerned about right now is Isabelle, not her acting but some of the outfits.
I really don’t want them to have Isabelle wear lots of slightly skimpy and revealing clothes because that’s not her character at all. I think that’s one thing the movie did really good on, the costumes. The clothing choices fit the characters super well and I’m just a little worried they’re going to change Isabelle’s character drastically. Of course, I could be totally over thinking it, but let me know what you guys think as well.
We also have this super cute Sizzy photo! I think they also look very cute together and I can’t wait to see Sizzy come to life on the big screen and get to see the actual relationship part, and not just the part of Izzy rejecting Simon like we saw in the movie. As much as I like Robert Sheehan as Simon, Alberto seems very promising, especially since he’s tweeted a photo of him in a ‘Made in Brooklyn’ t-shirt. I love how much the directors are paying attention to little details to make the fans happy!
There’s been lots of photos ranging from fighting practice, Matthew (Alec) practicing his archery, Malec and Clace pictures, everything just looks super good!
Can you guys tell how excited I am for this TV show? I believe things look very promising and I’ll make a post about the pilot once it airs to see if it lived up to the hype that I’m setting up for myself.
Let me know in the comments what you guys feel about the TV show! Do you like the cast or not? How do you think the TV show will go compared to the movie? Are you as excited as I am? I’d to discuss it with everyone.
