Actor Edward Zo, who was one of over 100 actors that auditioned for the role of Magnus Bane in the adaptation of ‘The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones,’ was “bummed” that he didn’t get the role, but is excited to see the book brought to life.
But he did say that, as a fan of the books, he was quite pleased with how the script remained faithful to the story, which is something fans can take as a good sign.
From the various tweets from actors auditioning for Magnus, it seems like casting director Stephanie Corsalini has a specific vision of Magnus that the actors are busy trying to pinpoint.
Such was the case for Zo, who lost out on the part because he was playing much younger than what casting was looking for.
Casting for the role of Magnus is underway this week and we should start to hear official castings in about two weeks.
