  1. How am I supposed to choose between Magnus and Jem? How? I love them both so much!

  2. I know she says she can’t confirm or deny….but if Kevin Zegers didn’t even audition, wouldn’t she be like, that’s a rumor he did not audition to my knowledge. If she can’t deny it, that gives this rumor some credence.
