MORTAL INSTRUMENTS Stars on JustJared's Spotlight of the Week

As you know, The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones came out this week (make sure you see it this weekend!), in honour of that, JustJared has made Lily Collins, Jamie Campbell Bower, Godfrey Gao, and Kevin Zegers their star spotlight this week.

Lily Collins' Photoshoot

TMICanada's Lily Collins JustJared 13 album on Photobucket
Just Jared: What is your favorite prop from the set?
Lily Collins: The witch light.
JJ: Did you steal it?
LC: I couldn’t, I wasn’t allowed.
JJ: Did you steal anything from set?
LC: I stole my blue leather jacket with all the rips in it. And my Doc Martens.
JJ: What was the craziest stunt that you did?
LC: Ooh! Well, pretty much running around at three or four in the morning with my heels on was enough. But I ran, I had to climb up this fire escape and launch myself off of it, after the vampire lets go of my foot, and I did it in my six inch boots and my mini dress, so I was trying not to show any skin while launching myself onto Jamie, which was interesting.

 Mortal Instruments Men (Godfrey Gao, Jamie Campbell Bower + Kevin Zegers') Photoshoot

TMICanada's MORTAL INSTRUMENTS Men JustJared album on Photobucket
Just Jared: Do you have a favorite prop from the set of Mortals?
Jamie Campbell Bower: My ring.
JJ: That you stole?
JCB: I didn’t steal it. I asked if I could have it.
JJ: What’s so special about it?
JCB: It’s a huge point when Valentine turns it around. Also, it was probably the smallest thing that I could take. (laughs)
Just Jared: What was your favorite prop from set?
Kevin Zegers: I have these things that are called “tonfas”, which are like a police’s night sticks but they have blades on the end of them.
JJ: Did you take them from set?
KZ: I didn’t. They wouldn’t let me take them.
JJ: Did you take anything?
KZ: They gave me this little thing that has this metal like, what do you call it? Anyway, it’s like this metal dust that’s inside this little jar. So they gave me that.
Just Jared: Do you have a favorite prop from set?
Godfrey Gao: My costume, which I thought was pretty cool. I had two costumes actually. One of them was just a velvet blazer with a lot of crazy designs. It looks silky, but also velvet, and every time you move, it lights up. It’s pretty cool. The bottom, I was wearing my underwear, (laughs), so that was pretty interesting for me. My prop, maybe the towel I had, just to wrap around my legs. I needed that because it was really cold. So that was a warm blanket that I had. Actually, the warlock outfit was pretty cool too. It was like full black, kind of like a demon, a whole suit with a pullover and a black, leather corset around my waist. That was a pretty cool outfit, and I wish I would have used that for maybe my next Halloween costume or something.
JJ: Did you do any crazy stunt work in those costumes?
GG: No, I don’t have any stunt scenes, but hopefully there will be more in the next movie. This movie was just an introduction to the character, I have a few scenes in this movie and Magnus Bane is a popular fan favorite character and it develops into the second and third film as well. It’s just like the books.

Godrey Gao Talks About 'The Mortal Instruments: CITY OF BONES' For MSN HK (We Have the Translation)

Godfrey Gao seems to be having a photoshoot with MSN Hong Kong. Looks like Godfrey Gao is also doing some Mortal Instruments promoting in Asia.

Here's what Godfrey Gao had to say about The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones (if using this translation, please credit us!):

"I’d like to say that I am very lucky to have been able to have the chance to take part in the TMI franchise. It wasn’t easy to get this opportunity— I had to go through many castings to get the part. The role is something really new/different for me (it’s not something I can use my personal experiences to play/fall back on). This is a great movie that’s coming out in Hong Kong soon. Go see it!"
The video is in a different language, but it's always nice to see some Godfrey Gao posing!

Godfrey Gao, Jamie Campbell Bower, Robert Sheehan, and Aidan Turner in VH1's '20 Hot Guys You Need to Know In 2013'

Check it out, we have 4 of VH1's 20 Hot Guys You Need to Know in 2013!

Jamie Campbell Bower

2013 Projects To Watch: The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones (Aug 26)

Why Is He Hot This Year?: If Gao is on the verge of breaking out because of a juicy bit part in a popular YA film adaptation, the film's lead should also brace himself for success.

Things To Know About Him: Campbell Bower isn't a stranger to the fantasy genre. He was a Volturi in The Twilight Saga and Grindelwald, aka Dumbledore's crush/lover/enemy in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Oh, and he used to date Ginny Weasley.

Godfrey Gao

2013 Projects To Watch: The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones (Aug 26)

Why Is He Hot This Year?: Gao is a smoking hot Taiwanese model and actor who is crossing over to Western films in a big way with one of the more juicy roles in a film filled with eye candy, The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones. Also, he has a vocal online fan community.
Things To Know About Him: He was born in Taiwan, but moved to Canada at the age of 9, but then moved back to Taiwan to model and act in a plethora of teen dramas.

Robert Sheehan

2013 Projects To Watch: The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones (Aug 26)

Why Is He Hot This Year?: Sheehan is the third up-and-comer who could break out on The Mortal Instruments series alone. However, unlike Gao and Campbell Bower, he hasn't forged his path playing pretty boys, but character acting his way through cheeky anti-heroes and historical characters.

Things To Know About Him: Sheehan started acting professionally in his late teens in his native Ireland, grew in popularity and acclaim and jumped to the UK market with film roles and an electrifying performance in Misfits. He's appeared in a number of US films in supporting roles, but is poised for a crossover to Hollywood. Oh, and he apparently likes wine. That's good.

Aidan Turner

2013 Projects To Watch: The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones (Aug 26) & The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug (Dec 13)

Why Is He Hot This Year?: Turner is probably the most visible dwarf in The Hobbit being that he's the youngest, (arguably) the hottest, and the one least covered in make-up and his character is one of the more "human" ones in the trilogy. On the flip side, he'll be the mature elder of the pack in The Mortal Instruments, so he's got two places to be seen in different ways by fantasy audiences.
Things To Know About Him: He recently cut his hair, which would be sad, but it still looks really, really, really good.
Here's what Cassie had to say about this news:
I remember Harald interviewing Aidan for the first time and being like, all your hair, where did it go? And Aidan being like… “it was a wig?”

Kevin Zegers Talks About Working with Godfrey Gao, and Alec's Sexuality

Page to Premiere and Fangirlish got a chance to interview Kevin Zegers at WonderCon (Mar. 30). Page to Premiere also talked to Jamie Campbell Bower while at WonderCon, check out all the interview videos here.
Q: So should I ask the Lily questions? We asked Lily what to ask you and she was saying that we should ask you what it was like to work with Godfrey Gao.
K: It was great. He came in for like two days. So, he’s a busy guy. So he’s great. Not what I
expected it to be. We were kinda just buddies. Probably not what fans would expect for our interaction.

He seems like the kind of guy that I grew up with. Not super formal, kinda just a dude, we just hung out and talked about guy stuff. It was pretty mellow. Like I said it was like two days of work, so we didn’t get to know each other obviously as well as the rest of us did. And like in the first movie he’s kinda introduced and it doesn’t really go into our story as much as future books and movies, if there are ones, will.
Q: The other question she told us to ask was; what did you guys do to get to know each other off set?
K: We trained. We trained really hard, which when you are next to someone grunting and sweating for a few weeks – great ice breaker. We just worked a lot. When you work with someone as long as we did, all the courtesy stuff goes away and we are who we are. I say it all the time, but people on this movie were genuinely nice people. We laughed a lot. We were shooting sometimes 14 hours a day, so we weren’t going out partying all the time. It was a lot of work, but Lily and Jamie, they are still really close friends of mine. It was one of those experiences where we were all on the same page. Just got through it together.
Q: With Cassie being on set, did she give you a lot of advice on how to play your character
K: You know…she didn’t! We emailed once when I got the job. But no, she…I don’t know why. I think, she was there when we were in pre-production, and we were all talking about each of our takes on the
characters and I think that she felt that I had a pretty good understanding of the character of Alec and where we want him to go. Sometimes it’s best to just…

Q: Leave it alone.
K: Yeah. I think if it was heading in a bad direction she would have said something. I always felt pretty grounded in who I think he is. It made it a little bit easier to – it’s not easy to be such a complicated character.

Cassandra Clare's Set Diary from 'City of Bones': Day 4

 Check out the whole list of Cassandra Clare's set diary over at On day 4 we get some Magnus (Godfrey Gao) and some more Izzy (Jemima West)!
Day Four: Thursday
Today is a really late start day because shooting went late the night before, and there’s a mandated 12-hour turnaround for cast and crew so everyone can sleep. It’s also the day we have Grace, who is our girl from the Make-a-Wish foundation, on set. It was her wish to be on set for the City of Bones movie. I’ve actually corresponded with Grace before and sent her a bunch of iratze charms, which she still has. I’m so touched she kept them so we have a little moment, hugging and dancing around the costume room. Grace sobers up when she sees some of the Magnus’ party costumes, which are ever so slightly on the naked side. Fun, though. Brocade jackets! Crazy boots! Backless dresses! Sparkles everywhere! Grace winds up with a nicely tasteful look.
The shooting is on location that night in a subway tunnel. The cast has their chairs down on the platform. It’s fairly cold, so there are blankets for everyone. Kevin [Zegers] takes a picture of me with Jemima — she’s almost completely wrapped in a blankie.

Grace is doing her extra work, and she’s adorable. I’m hanging out with her mom when an extremely tall hot dude shows up on set. It’s Godfrey, who has come by to say hi, though he’s not shooting that day. So yes, I get to be there when he meets Kevin. They hadn’t run into each other before. I will keep the magical words they spoke secret, but it may have included the greeting “Hey, dude.” Me with Godfrey:
Rafy, the photographer, comes over to see if I want to be an extra in the scene but Harald says, “No, she’s going to be at Magnus’ party.”
Me: “I cannot be at Magnus’ party. I am not glamorous. Also I will get nervous and pass out.”
Looks like I will be at Magnus’ party

A Look Into Godfrey Gao's Vintage March Photoshoot

Modeling for the March edition of GQ, Godfrey Gao can be seen taking various vintage-themed pictures for the photo shoot. He gives the impression that he is a busybody with many tasks needing his attention, thus he can be seen crumbling up papers to perfect some kind of project of his. Wearing various neutral and calm-colored suits, Gao sports a classy style attire, even holding a cane to compliment this concept. (via 24-7KPOP)
Check out the video for the photo shoot:

Meeting Magnus Bane tomorrow

Today (Feb. 25), Joshua Horowitz (a MTV Correspondent) tweeted that we would get a big surprise tomorrow
Later, Joshua tweeted that this surprise would involve a certain warlock, Magnus Bane.
What do you think that could mean? 
Perhaps another photo, maybe an interview, or even better, a clip of Magnus?

Feast your eyes upon Godfrey Gao as Magnus Bane (with an interview from MTV)

The unedited version of Magnus Bane (Godfrey Gao) from Cassandra Clare's tumblr:

MTV interviews Godfrey Gao:


Sparkly eye-liner? Check. Posh threads? Yep. Flashy nail polish? You bet. He may not be a rock star but he sure as hell could be: Meet Magnus Bane, the High Warlock of Brooklyn.
The big-screen adaptation of Cassandra Clare's best-selling urban fantasy"The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones" doesn't hit theaters until August 23, but MTV News is giving you an exclusive first look at the flamboyant fan-favorite character, played by newcomer Godfrey Gao.
"City of Bones" centers around Clary Fray (played by Lily Collins), a seemingly average teen, who uncovers her secret roots in a society of half-angel, half-human warriors known as Shadowhunters, who are tasked with ridding the world of demonic forces. Along with her newfound Nephilim allies, Clary gets assistance from the magical Bane, who knows a lot more about her past than he leads on.

Interview with Godfrey Gao:

Magnus is a multi-layered character, to be sure, and it was a role Gao said he relished.
"I love Magnus Bane's character because [he] can live forever and never age a day, and who doesn't want to live forever?" Gao told MTV News. "I also love that Magnus is a flamboyant party animal, and it's fun to be described that way compared to the other characters I've portrayed previously. Magnus is so out there, he's definitely a character I will never forget!"
Magnus' "out there" persona boasts plenty of theatricality in his dress and personal grooming (evidenced by our first look photo). And, surprisingly, Gao said the transformation didn't translate to hours in the makeup chair.
"Magnus' extravagant style of dress and makeup was quite the hot topic when I arrived to shoot in Toronto. All the glitter, nail polish, eye-liner and the outfits combined made Magnus the character that everyone loves and envisioned in their minds," Gao said. "While I never spent more than 30 minutes for hair and makeup, the results for Magnus' style ... let's just say the hair, makeup and costume team/departments did a fantastic job of styling my character, and I enjoyed every single moment of transforming into Magnus! The warlock outfit with the black cape and hoody was very intriguing as well!"

Freak out over the one and only Magnus Bane

Wednesday, February, 13th will forever be known as the day we got our very first look at the High Warlock of Brooklyn, Magnus Bane. It's perfect timing given that tomorrow is Valentine's Day, thus even if you don't have a date, you have Magnus to keep you company!

The guessing started with:
I can tell you have a lot on your mind. I won't keep you waiting.
If you want to know more, just look into my eyes.
Some of us noticed the similarities from Magnus's party scene
More Magnus decor:
Did I cast a spell on you?
Love always finds a way
After checking out the glittery nails and magnificent ring, we were certain it was Magnus!
Come in and try not to murder any of my guests.
Presenting, Magnus Bane:
Look at those amazing eyes! The adaptation is flawless!
