TMI movie cut

Several media websites have written reports about their visits to the set of THE MORTAL INSTRUMENTS: CITY OF BONES — check them out here — and now Teen.com has unveiled their exclusive set visit.

Check out an excerpt by Teen.com’s Kaitlin Cubria:

To say that working at Teen.com has its perks would be the understatement of the year. On a daily basis, I get to talk about all things related to teens, (which, despite resting comfortably in my early twenties, is a career highlight). On top of the list of opportunities: movie set visits; particularly when I went to Toronto and actually walked through — and touched! — the set of The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones.

As a fan of the Cassandra Clare book series, this wasn’t just a chance; this was the chance of a lifetime, as I’m sure all you Shadowhunters would agree. But, since I wasn’t able to pack you all in my suitcase, let me paint you a little picture as to what it was like from start to finish…

Exclusive media set reports from THE MORTAL INSTRUMENTS: CITY OF BONES set

TMI movie cut

In honor of Valentine’s Day, the select media that visited the Toronto set of The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones last year are now able to unveil their exclusive set reports.

Here is a list of the sites and their reports (that will be continually updated):


Valentine Morgenstern (Jonathan Rhys Meyers) is holding Clary Fray (Lily Collins) down on a long wooden table.  He’s angry, and getting more frustrated with each passing second.  Standing close by is Jace Wayland (Jamie Campbell Bower), who is covered in tattoos, and he looks concerned.  After some time passes, Valentine screams “I want my cup!” A second later, he slams Clary’s head onto the table and turns around and hits Jace.  Immediately Jace says, “you said you wouldn’t hurt her!” and then grabs a long wooden staff to go in for the attack.  A second later, I hear director Harald Zwart call cut.

Collider has a WHOLE LOT of coverage:

TMI Set Day 11 Recap: Filming at Garroway Books and Curios kicks of week three

The third week of filming on THE MORTAL INSTRUMENTS: CITY OF BONES kicked off with filming at Garroway Books and Curios on Tuesday.

Lily Collins, Jamie Campbell Bower, Robbie Sheehan and Aidan Turner were on set for filming on what  sounds like Chapter 5: Weapon of Choice, after Clary and Jace travel through Madame Dorothea’s portal and find Simon themselves at Lukes’s.

From set photos to set reports, catch up on everything that went down on the 11th day of filming:






Michelle: “…Today, I was not able to see any actors, except Lily, Jamie and Aiden–from a distance and very blurry because I have low vision. Most of the report that I can provide you guys today will consist of set up of the set, rather than seeing any actors. Given that there’s only three of them on call today for the scene and such. I am so glad that the crew is very nice and understanding for our love of TMI that they do not kick us out at all. Even when we find ourselves accidentally walking into an area only for the cast and crew. Based out of our speculations, they must have been filming the portal scene today at around 6 pm (noticed by Rebecca @stolethenight) as she saw flashes from inside the store…” Read more

Humility: “… What I can say is that the area they filmed it in was exactly how I pictured it. They had fences near apartment and we believe that it could be Luke’s place (picture below). And we all know that in the book Jace and Clary jump over the fence to get to Luke’s then Simon is discovered hiding & creepishly watching Luke. Oh and the bookstore is right beside the apartment. The bookstore looks so cool from what I saw when I walked passed it and I saw some antiques. I can’t wait to see this all on screen!  …” Read more

Aathy: “… After some waiting some crew members come out. My friend points out one guy who wasn’t wearing a walky-talky and asked if he was important. I looked and didn’t think much of him as he was scratching his back. AND THEN HE TURNS AROUND! At first I couldn’t even tell because of the burly beard and the curly black hair, but O.M.G. it was Aiden Turner! I wasn’t even sure if we were going to see him with the luck we were having today. My day was totally made when he waved at us. He was gorgeous and the beard really changed his appearance. Very Luke. …” Read more
