Jemima West (Isabelle) recently attended the Gerardmer Film Festival in France and she took some time to talk about The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones.
Check out the interview video (which is in French). You can read the English translation below that.
Interviewer: A few words on City of Bones?
Jemima: Oh, City of Bones! I don’t know if you know but it’s a movie adaptation of a book series written by Cassandra Clare and we filmed the first book of the series. There are 5 so far and will be 6 in total. And it’s really interesting because it happens in an existing world, in New York, and at the same time, there’s another paralleled world with angels, demons, vampires…all of that mixed together. That’s what I adored; you have a foot in reality and the other in the imaginary.
Interviewer: You were more angel or demon?
Jemima: Angel. I play a Shadowhunter; they’re half angel and half human. I was a brunette and wore a black costume with lots of leather. So I was an angel but…not the way we imagine them all in blonde and stuff.
Jemima also took part in a photo shoot at the festival:
