The second week of filming on THE MORTAL INSTRUMENTS: CITY OF BONES kicked off on Monday with the scene that started it all: Pandemonium.
Security was as tight as ever–as it looks like they want to keep this scene secret–as fans made their way to the set to meet the actors and soak in as much as they could of filming.

(btw, this was the special treat I was talking about) eventually we grew bored again but when we noticed Elyas coming our way again, one of us asks for his autograph and he genuinely looked surprised! He asked how we knew him and such questions and would sign our books hesitantly because he couldn’t believe that we were asking for his autograph.

While Edward Zo, one of the many actors who auditioned for Magnus Bane, didn’t get the part in THE MORTAL INSTRUMENTS: CITY OF BONES, he and the other Asian actors that auditioned have shown their support of Godfrey Gao’s casting.
With whitewashing happening everywhere in Hollywood nowadays, author Cassandra Clare stood firm on her belief that the actor the studio cast as Magnus should be Asian or part-Asian.
Zo wanted me to share this video with you about “the social impact and cultural significance” of Godfrey’s casting.
