Aidan Turner on playing a werewolf in THE MORTAL INSTRUMENTS: CITY OF BONES

Luke still

Aidan Turner is no stranger to playing supernatural creatures. He’s played a vampire (in Being Human), a dwarf (in The Hobbit) and in THE MORTAL INSTRUMENTS: CITY OF BONES he plays werewolf Luke Garroway.

Aidan talked to Middle-Earth News about playing varying supernatural creatures:

Since wrapping on The Hobbit last July, Aidan has filmed The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, in which he plays the werewolf Luke Garroway.  He jokes that he’d like to play a real person at some stage,

“I just thought…let’s just do the holy trinity – the dwarf, the vampire and the werewolf!”

Aidan will return to New Zealand in May for more filming on The Hobbit and then there’s the possibility of a sequel to The Mortal Instruments, but he doesn’t mind if future projects are in theatre, television or film.

    I cannot wait! I loved him as Kili in the Hobbit, and he was simply hilarious! He will play Luke flawlessly.

  3. He is a wonderful actor and I am looking forward to seeing him as Luke. I think he is the perfect choice for Luke!!! Can’t wait for TMI to come out!!!! Hurry up August!!!

  4. Honestly I think it would be more fun to play supernatural characters. Unless he’s concerned with type casting.

  5. why a sequel..just leave it to Bones

    • Why the hell would you stop at the beginning of a series and leave it there? The story would never get finished you obviously have no idea what you are talking about. What if she only wrote Clockwork angel and no more after that?

  6. He’s so sexy and such a brilliant actor. I’ve never saw Luke the same way again XD
