The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones has been in theaters for over 24 hours, and we are already thinking The Mortal Instruments: City of Ashes. Judge us, it’s fine. But with filming starting soon, we want your voices to be heard. TMI Source, Mundie Moms and Fangirlish asked for your suggestions on who to fan cast for parts in City of Ashes.
Raphael Santiago makes his book debut in City of Bones, but we have been assured that Raphael will be in City of Ashes, as we know he has a big part to play in the second installment.
When asking for fan casting, there was a little bit of a backlash. Fans who have seen the movie said that Elyas M’Barek is meant to be Raphael. But he is not. According to IMDB he is a Vampire Leader. He dies in City of Bones. As we have all been assured that Raphael makes his appearance in the The Mortal Instruments: City of Ashes – how can Elyas be Raphael? Simply put, he cannot.
Raphael is described as having black, curly hair: slightly built with honey-colored skin. He’s shorter then Jace. His eyebrows are so thin that Simon wonders if he has them drawn in. He is around 15, but his age in vampire years is unknown.
We have collected your suggestions. Here are your top five.
Tyler Posey – He’s the fan favorite. He has a huge following from Teen Wolf so he could attract new fans to the franchise. He has experience playing a supernatural character, and he could make a nice transition from werewolf to vampire.
Avan Jogia – He has a sinister quality about him. He has a huge following from television shows such as Victorious and Twisted and this could be his break to the big screen.
Diego Boneta – He’s proven himself in a variety of roles, including Rock of Ages and Pretty Little Liars. He was named 2012 GQ Latin American Actor of the Year. He also won the Alma Award for Best Actor in 2012.
Shiloh Fernandez – He has had big screen starring roles in Red Riding Hood and Evil Dead. NextMovie.com named him one of their ‘Breakout Stars to Watch For in 2011.
Michael Trevino – He has a huge fan-following from Vampire Diaries. He has experience playing a Downworlder of a different sort than what City of Ashes calls for, but he has experience working with vampires and could make a nice transition.
