Books into Movies: The Mortal Instruments (Jamie Campbell Bower Talks About Becoming Jace)

It seems like filming must be getting close for The Mortal Instruments. Jamie Campbell Bower is beginning to prepare for the role of Jace by buffing up. He had a short interview with Telegraph talking about it.

“I’m in physical training every day,” he tells Mandrake at the launch of Lacoste’s flagship store in Knightsbridge.

“I’m drinking lots of protein shakes. I’m going to the gym and doing weights in the morning, then, in the afternoon, I’m doing something called Krav Maga, which is a martial art.”

The actor, 23, who resides in Clapham, south London, adds: “If you live in a dodgy area like I do, then it could be a handy thing for me to have.”


 I'm so excited that production is starting to get under way for this movie! I'm growing more and more supportive with the choice for Jamie Campbell Bower as Jace. Especially with the recent photos of him and his super blond hair!  I'm glad he's trying to gain some muscle too. I didn't picture Jace as scrawny as him.

What do you think? Do you like him or did you want another actor playing Jace? Comment below!

  1. I don't know if I'm set on Bower as Jace yet. I feel like his face is too boyish. I'd have to see how he looks when he toughens up, you know?

  2. I'm not sure about Jamie as Jace yet. I'm still mourning from Alex Pettyfer's rejection. I think HE was the perfect Jace. But nevertheless, I think that I'll end up loving Jamie because he's the chosen one and I think the movie will be awesome!!!

    1. I was rooting for Alex Pettyfer too! I hope the movie will be good. It has the potential at least :)

  3. I was one of the people rooting for Alex Pettyfer too, but I guess he rejected it because he doesn't want to do any more "teen" movies. Cassandra Clare also made a really good point when she mentioned that if the movies are successful and are made into 5 more, the person playing Jace is going to have to keep a pretty youthful look. And Jamie Bower can definately do that, whereas Alex Pettyfer was very...well...manly already. But It's all about the on-screen chemistry for me, and if the greenhouse scene Jamie auditioned with made Cassie Clare cry, I'm sure that Jamie is the perfect choice!
