The Mortal Instruments Movie: Meet Isabelle Lightwood
I was all set to dub 2012 the year of the great Mortal Instruments movie news drought, but Cassandra Clare just dropped this casting news, so drought=over.
Meet Jemima West, aka Isabelle Lightwood, whip-slinging Shadowhunter and tough chick extraordinaire! She can currently be seen playing Vittoria on The Borgias. I think she’s got the Izzy look, and Cassie is clearly pleased, saying “she had a lot of Izzy’s toughness and directness in her audition.”
Jemima joins a cast that already includes Jamie Campbell Bower as Jace Lightwood, and Lily Collins as Clary Fray. Cassie also has casting news about Izzy’s brother, Alec Lightwood, but she is holding off on reporting at the request of the studio.
All she will reveal for the moment is “our Alec may well be a lot more known to you. He’s British, and…I’ll tell you who he is in the next post.”
