ETA: MY ENTIRE DASHBOARD IS JACE AND CLARY.

ETA: This was the main audition scene for Jace. “Are you going to sleep?” “I’ve never been more awake.”  :)

Sony Pictures unveils new character graphic of Magnus Bane

After an exciting start to “Week of Mortal Love” celebration (in which we got images of SimonIsabelle, Alec and Jace), Sony Pictures unveiled the fifth graphic after another day filled with clues leading up to the reveal.

Here’s our first look at Godfrey Gao as Magnus Bane:

528547_428881620521917_612456084_n

Here’s the blurb from Sony:

“He sees beyond the city in your head.”

Here’s what Cassandra Clare had to say:

Well, hello there, MAGNUS.

Magnus, being all high warlock of Brooklyn and stuff.

Things I noticed : Well, I’ve never seen this set before, so I’m not going to assume I know where Magnus is right here, specifically. Things I do notice: warlock cat’s eyes! Badass jewelry! Nail polish and guyliner! Important life lessons to take away from this film: just because a dude is wearing nail polish doesn’t mean he can’t beat the crap out of you. The necklace is a bird’s skull dipped in silver, which is just a neat little touch.

I think the drink in his hand is from the party scene: the drinks were all different colors, so we weren’t allowed to drink them because I think they were like, antifreeze. I spilled some on a ghoul and he was sticky all night. (You can see a bright red drink behind Magnus, with the candles.)

Thanks to Sony and http://instagram.com/mortalmovie for being so awesome and I look forward to what Valentine’s Day brings. Have you been good Shadowhunters? Do you think you deserve an extra present? :D

MTV debuted the full still:

Godfrey Gao as Magnus Bane

They also unveiled an exclusive interview:

Magnus is a multi-layered character, to be sure, and it was a role Gao said he relished.

“I love Magnus Bane’s character because [he] can live forever and never age a day, and who doesn’t want to live forever?” Gao told MTV News. “I also love that Magnus is a flamboyant party animal, and it’s fun to be described that way compared to the other characters I’ve portrayed previously. Magnus is so out there, he’s definitely a character I will never forget!”

Magnus’ “out there” persona boasts plenty of theatricality in his dress and personal grooming (evidenced by our first look photo). And, surprisingly, Gao said the transformation didn’t translate to hours in the makeup chair.

“Magnus’ extravagant style of dress and makeup was quite the hot topic when I arrived to shoot in Toronto. All the glitter, nail polish, eye-liner and the outfits combined made Magnus the character that everyone loves and envisioned in their minds,” Gao said. “While I never spent more than 30 minutes for hair and makeup, the results for Magnus’ style … let’s just say the hair, makeup and costume team/departments did a fantastic job of styling my character, and I enjoyed every single moment of transforming into Magnus! The warlock outfit with the black cape and hoody was very intriguing as well!”

Sony will reveal more character images every day (at the same time 8 PM ET/5 PM PT) leading up to Valentine’s Day on Thursday.

Sony Pictures unveils new character graphic of Alec Lightwood

After an exciting start to “Week of Mortal Love” celebration (in which we got images of Simon and Isabelle), Sony Pictures unveiled the third graphic after another day filled with clues leading up to the reveal.

Check out Kevin Zegers as Alec Lightwood:

529701_427987377278008_680960797_n

Here’s the blurb from Sony:

The hunt for his love is in the shadows… for now.

Here’s what Cassie had to say:

Things I noticed: — um, I can’t see that much, the background is pretty blurred out! Kevin’s eyes are really blue, and he looks kind of like he just saw someone he knows in the distance. :) The rune on his neck is Block/Deflect and I’m going to say he’s in front of  a window. Just a guess though.

Here’s what Kevin had to say:

Thanks for all of the nice comments. Can’t wait for you all to see the film. Pictures don’t really do it justice.

Here’s the full still from Hollywood.com:

Kevin Zegers as Alec Lightwood

Here’s the blurb from Hollywood.com:

But from the looks of things (and, they definitely have the look right, as Zegers is sporting the Shadowhunters tattooed markings), Alec Lightwood is having an intense moment at The Institute. Perhaps he had a pow-wow with his rough-around-the-edges sister Isabelle (Jemima West) about what to do with their unexpected guest Clary (the tale’s heroine, played by Lily Collins) or maybe he’s just caught the eye of fellow Shadowhunter Jace (Jamie Campbell Bower) or the warlock Magnus (Godfrey Gao).

Sony will reveal more character images every day (at the same time 8 PM ET/5 PM PT) leading up to Valentine’s Day on Thursday.

Check out Jemima West as Isabelle Lightwood (in what looks the infirmary):

Here’s the blurb from Sony:

Maybe it’s time to rekindle that old flame…

Here’s what Cassie had to say:

Things I noticed: that’s her whip, coiled under her arm. That’s Simon, standing behind her. (Sony ships Sizzy.) The beds look like infirmary beds. Izzy when Clary wakes up? Or when Alec is sick? I like the way they’ve done the faded out runes on her arm.
