Jemima West (Isabelle) did an interview with The Telegraph where she briefly touched on THE MORTAL INSTRUMENTS, including her surprise at the massive fan base.
Isabelle Lightwood, her character in The Mortal Instruments, turns out to be a feisty demon-slayer. “They are warriors, fighters, and they live in their own world,” she explains, admitting, “I had no idea that the fan base was so enormous for the books.” She will now be fully aware that the legions of teenage girls obsessed by what Publisher’s Weekly describe as Clare’s “smart/chic horror” will expect an authentic performance from her ink-haired demon-killer.
The ongoing shoot in Toronto, Canada, will also feature Lily Collins (Snow White), Jamie Campbell (Twilight) and Rob Sheehan (Killing Bono), and all involved with be hoping for Twilight’s stratospheric success for the films.
Jemima is still in Toronto for filming on THE MORTAL INSTRUMENTS: CITY OF BONES, which is expected to wrap on November 6.
