Robert Sheehan talks ‘MORTAL INSTRUMENTS,’ says ‘CITY OF ASHES’ will film through Christmas


Robert Sheehan spoke to RTE about The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, including his character Simon Lewis, explaining the story of City of Bones, filming City of Bones and he revealed that they will be filming The Mortal Instruments: City of Ashes until Christmas.

“…and then it’s on to Mortal Instruments deux (two), part deux, until Christmas.”

We’ve also transcribed all the Mortal Instruments talk below!

Robert describing City of Bones and introducing his character, Simon Lewis:

The book is about a character called Clary Fray, who starts to discover magical abilities in herself and then tumbles into this crazy, dark magical world that exists in tandem with New York. She discovers a race of demon hunters called Shadowhunters, which are part human, part angel, and realizes herself that she has Shadowhunter blood. And tumbling along with her is her BFF, who’s secretly harboring feelings of love for her — Simon Lewis — and that’s who I play in the film.

On filming on the set of City of Bones:

We had a lovely kind of friend-vibe and obviously we had to do some nearly-romantic stuff, as well. Yeah, it was difficult, terribly difficult.

On working with his fellow Irishmen, Jonathan Rhys Meyers and Aidan Turner:

We were all speaking in Irish on set and we were very cliquish, us Hibernian lads. It was lovely. It was really lovely.

The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones hits theaters on Aug. 21.

  1. I’m trying to work out release date I think it would be November 2014 …..I think I could deal with that!!! We’d have cob dvd to see us through until then / I can’t believe how close we are to seeing the book I’ve loved for years coming to life ……..just did a little air punch then !!!

      • ^Are you sure about that Mockingjay thing? Cause usually, it’s never the same month as the movie before it, they makes us wait more than a year. Like, HG to CF is a year and 8 months, so if that continues, it’ll be July 2015…

  2. Maybe tony…November is a guess but who knows how well cob will do could be the other way round!!! Perhaps could be out Xmas instead !! I’m sure filmmakers will take that into account .

  4. Robert is great. Just love hearing him talk about anything. He could read the weather report and it would be funny. He was excellent in “the Accused”- the TV show referenced in the interview. I am so happy he is our Simon.
