So, the past few days, Sony Pictures has been released cues and pictures through instagram, promising the fans a newly released still of a character.
Yesterday, they released a still of Robert Sheehan (who is currently on the show Misfits) as Simon Lewis, the best friend of Clary Fray (played by Lily Collins).
He looks so adorable, just like you would picture Simon to look. I hope he wears super nerdy shirts like he does in the books. I hope he’s super nerdy like in the books. I was always on Jace’s side but I always adored Simon as well. Simon is that dorky nerdy guy that I actually would date. Jace is attractive because he’s the bad boy, the guy all the girls want to have but shouldn’t have. But oh, Simon. I love the quote they released on it as well; kind of makes me laugh. I think its a hint of his relationship with Isabelle Lightwood, whose signature weapon is her gold and silver whip…and Isabelle and Simon have a back and forth relationship throughout the entire series. Either way, this picture is awesome.
Today, they released a picture of Jemima West (a French actress) as Isabelle Lightwood.
Can I just say that my crush on Isabelle Lightwood just increased by a hundredfold? Jemima West is GORGEOUS and she looks super fierce as Isabelle, who is one of my favorite characters (after Jace and Alec). I wasn’t sure how I had felt about West for the part for awhile; she just looked way too sweet to be Isabelle but this picture makes me feel soooo much better. I have faith that West can pull off the sexy, fierce and badass Isabelle Lightwood. I love the all black shadowhunter clothes she’s rocking, and I hope that she has her whip in the movie (she better!!!). And I LOOOOVE all the runes she’s rocking too. So excited.
So Sony will be releasing more stills in the next few days, at 8pm eastern time, on the MortalMovie instagram and you can definitely keep up with it through Cassie’s twitter account as well. The hashtag on both of those websites is #sharemortallove and will help Sony to release clues faster, and possibly more stills! We all want that right? I’m hoping to get some Godfrey Gao, who is playing the powerful and fabulously gay warlock Magnus Bane, in the next few days. I’m also hoping for some Kevin Zegers as well, who plays Isabelle’s older brother, Alec Lightwood.
I also wouldn’t mind seeing stills of Aidan Turner as werewolf, Luke Garroway, and Lena Headey as Clary’s mother, Jocelyn.
Its going to be great! Only 194 days until the City of Bones and 40 days until I meet Cassandra Clare! It’s all so exciting.
I’ll try to post the stills as they come out for any of you that are interested!
What do you guys think of the stills so far? Like or not? Why or why not?
