MTV unveiled another exclusive video from The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones set. The latest video focuses on Lily Collins (Clary Fray)


Lily on what drew here to The Mortal Instruments:
"I love the stories. I love Clary because she's this heroine who's this normal girl, who finds out she has these powers," the actress told MTV News during a recent visit to the Toronto-based set. "The emotion is there. It's not just a CGI world. It's not just a translation of a book. It's more emotionally, character-based than just aesthetically beautiful."

Lily on her character:

“I love Clary. I love this series,” she enthused. “I’m so ready. I’m so ready to be a Shadowhunter a little more since I’ve only gotten a taste of it in this film.”

Jamie Campbell Bower (Jace) on Lily:

“To get to watch Lily do something β€” that’s really amazing,” he said. “There have been times I’ve been in a scene with Lily, and she’s doing something, and I just zone out, being like ‘God, you’re brilliant. Oh wait! I’m actually meant to be saying something.’ I’m like, ‘Oh, crikey! There’s words at this point.’ “

Robert Sheehan (Simon) on Lily:

“She’s an absolute star and incredible, on-the-moment brilliant actor and consummate professional,” said Robert Sheehan, who plays Clary’s best friend Simon. “It’s lovely to have someone like that for the really emotional, dramatic stuff. That’s what really makes the film, first and foremost, a human story. Because if it’s not that, it’s not really relatable or interesting.”

  1. I wish these things would be posted outside of MTV at the same time, as it is *not* available to viewers outside of the US (ie the rest of the world!!!). So frustrating.

    Jamie is PERFECT for jace …enough said!

  9. Jamie is THE ONLY Jace πŸ™‚ I just love Jamie’s voice and accent – so sexay!!! Love you Jamie!!! ❀ ❀ ❀

  10. You can tell how passionate she is about the role. She’s going to be fantastic as Clary. I know everyone is talking about Jamie (who I love as Jace), but I just adore Robert. I’m especially looking forward to the scene where Simon confronts Clary after he catches her kissing Jace in the hallway. A little birdie told me it’s heart-breaking. Lily and Robert have great chemistry together. Oh, it gives me chills just imagining it. Ugh…I can’t wait for this movie!!!!
