The second week of filming on THE MORTAL INSTRUMENTS: CITY OF BONES continued at Hotel Dumort (known by the mundane world as the Royal Connaught Hotel) on Thursday.
Lily Collins, Jamie Campbell Bower, Robert Sheehan, Kevin Zegers and Jemima West were all on set, as were the vampire extras in the pivotal Hotel Dumort scene. “All the vamps are terribly good-looking,” @rheestacks tweeted on Thursday from the set.
From set photos to a first look at the City of Bones, catch up on everything that went down on the ninth day of filming:
Seb: “…My thanks for the fortune of this day goes to the publicist Karen, she follows many of us on twitter and knew my name before even meeting me. Throughout the day she was kind enough to bring out the cast for some signing times and one by one every fan that did not have a chance to be there on Wednesday got their books signed, in exchange we were asked to keep our distance and not get in the way. Jemima, Kevin, then Robert, and even Jamie all came out around 3-4 and talked with us for a bit, and we all loved it. After this point many of them left including my friend Krystina. I stayed until around 7 pm, all the while talking with crew and Kevin and Jack who was one of this kindest one on set.

There was a collective intake of breath that was SO loud he definitely heard us and he was like 10 feet away! He went and sat on a bench and took out a cigarette. Karen came out and said to leave him be, not to take pictures and let him have his smoke, and then he would come over and sign our books. I stood there for 5 mins literally jumping up and down and having the biggest fan girl moment EVER. He came over and started to sign our books, and I noticed he had weapons all over him, so I told him he looked like a badass and he laughed (I died) and then we said thanks for signing our stuff! He said thanks for camping out and waiting for us in his amazing accent and asked us all how far we came to see the set…” Read more
