Still from MTV's First Look at CITY OF BONES

Still from MTV’s First Look at CITY OF BONES

You guys have waited for it. Now it’s finally here.


Josh Horowitz of MTV News visited the Toronto set of THE MORTAL INSTRUMENTS: CITY OF BONES and spoke with Lily Collins (Clary), Jamie Campbell Bower (Jace), Kevin Zegers (Alec), Jemima West (Isabelle) and Robbie Sheehan (Simon) while they were filming Magnus’ party.


You can also watch it on Tumblr

Here’s what the cast had to say:

Lily Collins: “It’s really a story that’s based in reality as much as it is in this fantasy world. They’re coexisting. It’s more emotionally and character-based than just aesthetically beautiful. It’s got amazing imagery and the CGI is going to be incredible, but it’s not just about that.”

Jamie Campbell Bower: “We’re standing here. It’s like three o’clock in the morning. I’m not in the world’s greatest mood, but I get to go to work, and I get to be a bit of an a–hole.”

Kevin Zegers:  “I kind of didn’t really have a whole lot of time thinking about it. Which is kinda good, because you just sort of jump on to something like this and it’s been fun, man. This is totally new for me.”

Jemima West: “I’m totally excited to be apart of it. And I started feeling the excitement as it all happened. Once I got the script, once I’ve read the script, once I started reading the books. Then I realized this was a huge deal and being apart of it. I’m so lucky.”

Robbie Sheehan: “We started shooting this around Toronto City most places that we went to there were fans there waiting for us. There was, you know, ten or fifteen mainly teenage girls waiting for us. And it was quite jarring to be kind of handed the book of the Mortal Instruments and to be asked to sign it. You know, on the first few days of filming, thinking this isn’t my book, you know, I am not responsible for any of the words or any of the story in there. So that was quite odd. But I did it anyway. And I even drew boobs on some of the books.”

A fan spotted author Cassandra Clare, who teased a cameo in the film at Magnus’ party, in the video:

MTV promised more exclusive looks at the film so stay tuned!

Be sure to keep checking back with MTV News for more exclusive “City of Bones” content. In the coming months, we’ll be introducing you to the film’s cast of colorful characters (including Magnus) and reveal an interview with author Cassandra Clare.

Josh Horowitz also promised “just the beginning” in regards to behind-the-scenes scoop:

  3. [faint] how hot was robert sheehan … love love love.. can’t wait for more 🙂

  4. Omg it’s perfeect! I started squeaking and wanted to jump around, but I got operated on my toe, so I have to sit in bed and only do the squeaking..however: AMAZING!! ♥

  5. Awesome!!!!

  6. Damn. Pleasantly surprised! Lily looks incredible (her hair looks really dark though :S) Robertttt ❤

  7. Crying tears of joy!! HOLY RAZIEL!!!!!!!! I just can’t stop smiling. 😀

  8. I was totally freaking out! :))

  9. omgomgomgomgomggogmgogmgo _o i am dead LOL XDDDDDD they all look really well and lol Jamie XDDD yea i would be same if it was 3 in the morning :/

  10. Omg awesome! And Jaime, I would be like that at 3 in the morning too o.O I would be totally sleeppy…
    “And I get to be a f#%&”, Hahaha, loved it!

  11. ops, *sleepy 😀

  12. And they are so like their characters! I mean, really! Look at what they all said in this video! I can totally see the characters in the actors!! =)

  13. JAAAAAAMMMMMMMIIIIIIIIIIIEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE so perfect and cute and funny, ugh

  14. Oh God, It’s Jamie, not Jaime! I wrote it wrong xD
    AND HE’S SO CUUUUUTE, and omg.

  15. I think lily hair is a lil dark but overal cant wait I hope they dont wreck this movie I wasnt that pleased wit hunger games n this is my fav series 🙂

  16. i can’t watch it here 😥

  17. I really like Jemima’s bracelet, and I really want to see Godfrey Gao as Magnus!

    I just had to say this, even though I’m sure everyone else saw it, I think it’s so nice that they put it in the movie.

    Also, Magnus’s house is freaking awesome.

    • Sorry, I have to say, but Lily looks very stiff when she turns to Jamie in this clip. Hope her acting is better in the polished film.

      • True, but it’s not necessarily the take they’ll use in the actual movie. And I’m sure it will look much better with the sound and all the effects (because the downworlders look like hallowing costumes to me. Especially the faeries. I hope it’ll look better on the big screen).

      • I luv this series of books so im so worried bout the movie but we will see she did look a bit stiff just hope in the end it will be good

      • Yeah man, things will be alot different looking when it comes to camera angles in the movie and all that. When it comes to working with a camera thats trying to capture all your facial expressions and stuff you have to contort and move in all sorts of wierd unnatural ways… I really wouldnt worry about it.

  19. oh my god. my mouth is to the floor…
    ive never been so excited in my life.
    jamies sooo jaceish
    lilys sooo claryish
    roberts sooo simonish
    kevins sooo alecish

    and jemimas voice!! shes so posh and elegant!

    love love love
    yayyyyyyyy really happy now 😀

  20. Can’t watch the video 😦 also I cannot view the MTV news exclusive video because of my location 😦

  21. I can’t see the video either… I’m in Canada…?

  22. I know the youtube video got taken down but the MTV one on their website isn’t for UK viewers such as myself which is a real shame 😦 😦 😦


  24. In the name of the Angel, I think I’m gonna die….
    But I’ll die a happy woman:))))

  25. *Dies*

  26. I can’t stop replaying it!

  27. Seriously… I just REALLY want it ALL!!!! But I loved this exclusive clip and all! It was truly amazing, and Magnus´s party looks great – though i can all ready tell it´s a bit different than form the book

  28. Oh My God!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I loved how they’ve showed a clip from Magnus’s party! 😀 Now I’m dying to see the offical trailer! XD I hope there almost done with it! Because, its killing me slowly! 🙂

  32. ok,some awesome people need to work out how to rip this and put it on youtube or something NOW because MTV US are absolute butt wipes and won’t let anyone outside the U.S watch it and I an so frinkin’ disappointed right now it is unreal! WHY MTV U.S, the amount of fangirls who hate you right now is massive!

  33. hurray!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  34. HOLY SH…..OMG!!!!!! Robbie, you look beautiful!

  35. Dude, they actually showed a little bit of a scene in that video! HOLY CRAP!

  36. YAY!!!!!! I can NOT wait!

  37. I am so excited!! It looks great!! Why cant the movie come out sooner then August? can wait!! Does any one know when the first trailer might come out?

    Will he look anorexic during the entire movie? COME ON!!! He’s uber gorgeous and he can look so much better than this. Fire his current stylists and hire new ones!!!

  39. Dude, did you see Simon looking at Jace and Clary when Jace grabbed her? Robert is such a good actor!

  40. teamedwardjace // October 11, 2012 at 10:54 PM // Reply

    loving these pics! I’m so excited and the scenes looks great! everyone does!

  41. She looks like a slut, but that’s what it says she wears in the book so that is awsome. I love it!

  42. That part in the clip where jace takes out clarys hair from her ponytail is so one of my favourite parts in City of Bones ( book) cause it shows that jaces does care for her.
    Omg !!! They look absolutely amazing all of them 🙂 I was a bit worried about the choice of cast like with Jamie as jace just because I wasn’t sure he would be able to be jace but now I am satisfied !!!!!! 23 August 2013 cannot come soon enough .

  43. oh my God, this is amazing! and it’s torture! can’t WAIT!

  44. i’m so excited … i can’t wait !!!!

  45. OH MY GOD, I am sooooo excited about this movie! August 2013 is WAY too long of a wait!!

  46. nevertrustaduck // October 12, 2012 at 9:58 PM // Reply

    I’m sad! It won’t let me watch on Tumblr or MTV. 😦

  47. They should release this movie around halloween next year instead of august lol

  48. Im still getting used to Jamie, but I absolutely love everything else. I almost exploded when I saw this. 2013 looks like a good year ; Clockwork Princess, City of Bones, and Cathing Fire ( Hunger games and Mortal Instruments are my favorite books of all time )

  49. Still don’t agree with Jamie as Jace but who knows I might be surprised, and I guess the dude acting for Simon (Robbie, never heard of him) is pretty handsome lol and Lily Collins did not look dressed anything like Clary in the books but like I said still excited ❤ and I shouldn't judge just yet lol

  50. honestly i dont want to watch the movies…i really love tmi, read them 20 times or so but when i watch the movies, i cant read the book anymore without seeing the filmcast in my mind and that would be horrible. i dont think that jamie is a good jace, i think he doesnt even look a little bit pretty and jace should be ABSOLUTELY BREATHTAKING HOT !!!!!!!!!! i dont think that the other actors fit with their roles either but jamie is the worst cast i can imagine…i just hope they wont mess up the cast in tid like this…-.-

  51. Ah those of you who put up tumbler links are wonderful, beautiful people who I love to pieces! I’m in work right now, but as soon as I get home I’m watching it! Deliriously excited! Wish I could just run out of work!

    hey everyone! i posted in online daily motion ! also this video is amazing! yay!

  53. Everyone looks very good exept Jayce.Please replase the actor or i will crash a plane in the cinema where the premiere will be. That Jamie looks like a faggot. There are so many others.Why him?

  54. Deanna Paige // October 29, 2012 at 5:39 PM // Reply

    I read the books when they came out, and I have been waiting for like ever! I love the cast, although I had other persons in mind for some roles, I am thrilled with who the picked. My best friend and I have been shadowhunters for Halloween for the past 3 years, I’m getting ,y runes on for the movie! See you guys there 😉

  55. Deanna Paige // October 29, 2012 at 5:41 PM // Reply

    Oh and Jamie better be a dang good actor because the the Jace Wayland I know w
    Had so many different dimensions to his personality, I don’t really care what you look like you just need to pull off “jace”.

  56. 18 days later and I’m still freaking…

  57. Nayara Ariane // October 30, 2012 at 10:52 AM // Reply

    ahhhhhhhhhh…Eu mal posso esperar para ver o filme !!!!!!!!Amei o Jamie vai dar um ótimo Jace e ah amei todo o elenco !!!!!


  59. I can’t believe I’ve seen this post so late… The video doesn’t show cus I’m in the UK o_o I’m welling up right now. I’ve waited to see a clip for so long. Oh wow. My life.

  60. I’m so excited! I was going to be a Shadowhunter for Halloween, but apparently I’m too old. But I dressed up anyway in just some of my regular clothes. I’m watching the presidential election right now and I’m voting for Valentine Morgenstern, just FYI 😉 just kidding, I’m voting for Luke Garroway. Romney and Obama can be Vice President and Vice Vice President. Team Malec!!!!

  61. HOLY FREAKIN’ CRAP!!! i just found the series! only on bk. 3 but still. I cant wait for the film to release!!

  62. Queue the fangirling!!!!

  63. I’ve always been Jamie’s biggest fan, just know he’s gonna be amazing in this!x

  64. it allright i suppose i wz a bit dissipointed with jamie as jace cuz his accent kinda killz it and lilys hair a bit 2 red and really dark…but im hoping it will all come 2gethr in the movie and it will be jst lyk the book.

  65. i would’iv also thought that the actor of clary would be shorter and look more fragile and with firey orange hair

    I love how Robbie openly admits to drawing boobs. 🙂

  68. SilentCrescendo // December 21, 2012 at 5:44 PM // Reply

    Lovin’ this! 😀 I seriously cannot wait for the movie to come out. It so long until August… Why, oh why? Still, cue fangirling! **squels**

  69. What is that supposed be Jace? He’s a twig? Jace is supposed to have muscles, the actor’s just skin and bones. And Clary’s hair is way too dark.

  70. OH MY GOSH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THIS IS LIKE ADDICTING I WANT MORE BEHIND THE SCENES STUFF LOL!!! I can’t even…. like they give us a taste, just enough, and as Magnus said, “If love were food, I would have starved on the bones you gave me”. Except substitute love for behind the scenes exclusives.


  72. By the Angel!! I almost died when Jamie let lose Lily’s hair waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa I can’t wait!!!

  73. hermine oroujian // January 6, 2013 at 7:54 PM // Reply

    O my god thats the scene where he takes clarys pins out ahhhhhhhhhh so excited i just love the cast ❤

  74. yah sorta i just wish someone else would play Jace 😦

    • IKR! I like Jamie- as part of the Voultri, not Jace Wayland/Herondale/Lightwood. I STILL cant believe Alex Pettyfer turned down the part! He’s my fav actor and he perfectly looks and captures Jace!!!

  75. Sooooo cant wait to see the movie did you guys see jace disapear at the coffie shop amazing:) ad did you guys hearhodge in the beginning that wass super cool explaining about the shadowhunters and demons and stuff soo awesome cannot wait till august 23rd
