One of the main critiques by fans in regard to the Jamie Campbell Bower casting of Shadowhunter Jace Wayland was his look.
His hair is quite long in a majority of the pictures you can find online and fans noted that he needed to bulk up to play the role of a butt-kicking Shadowhunter.
After reading Hollywood Crush’s interview with Cassandra Clare we all know that Bower blew away the producers and nearly everyone else involved during his audition.
So how did Screen Gems get an idea of how Bower would look like as Jace? Well, they used a manipulation, of course.
Natalie C. Markey of the The Mortal Instruments Examiner received a photo that was manipulated by Screen Gems to give Bower a more Jace-like look to him.
Here you see Bower’s eyes photoshopped to match Jace’s gold eyes.
Clare noted that the producers said that Bower’s hair would be cut shorter and that he would undergo a sort-of bootcamp in order to bulk up a bit so the transformation isn’t 100% clear just yet. And we all know that appearance can be manipulated or altered.
What do you guys think of the photo? Can you see a bit of Jace begin to emerge in Jamie?
