When our friends at Hollywood Crush interviewed Lily Collins for her upcoming role in Abduction, there was no way they could not ask a Mortal Instruments movie update.
And boy did they not disappoint.
Collins dished on Jamie Campbell Bower’s audition for Jace:
“I only read with a couple of guys, and it’s funny because the way Jace was described in the scenes—I knew what Jamie looked like, and I had met him at social events before briefly, but from the second he walked, he carried himself in this way that was just Jace from the get go,” Lily recalled. “He walked in and it was like, okay, he totally has the vibe going on, and he was so nice, and he had totally just flown in from London for it the day before, he could have been extremely tired, but he was there to win us over.”
According to Collins, Bower just became the role.
“The second he started playing with the scene with me, everything was just so natural,” Lily continued. “He didn’t even seem like he was trying. He was just Jace. He had the perfect balance of all the different character traits and aspects you’d hope from Jace. There are so many levels to him. He just walked out when he was done, and I looked at everyone and said, ‘Guys, I think this is Jace.'”
In regards to the hot-topic question of when filming for City of Bones will begin, Collins is just as in the dark as we are.
“It’s been very much kind of up in the air with the dates,” she said. “I’m awaiting information like everyone else. I’ve kind of been over here in ‘Snow White’ land. It’s exciting that they have more time to properly put the pieces together and focus on getting the rest of the casting right and perfecting the script. I’d love for more information soon. I’d love to get started on casting Simon and all of the other characters.”
