Mortal Instruments Casting News: Meet Simon Lewis

Posted 07/11/2012 by alicemarvels in Behind the scenes
After teasing us horribly for weeks, Cassie Clare has FINALLY announced the actor who will play Simon Lewis in the Mortal Instruments movie franchise. Robert Sheehan (Misfits) will take on the role of Clary Fray’s best friend.


Aside from looking EXACTLY like the adorkable Simon in my head, apparently he had the best chemistry with Lily Collins and Jamie Campbell Bower too!

According to Cassie, she got their seal of approval before giving her OK on Robert’s casting. “When I talked to Jamie and Lily yesterday it was about who we thought was the absolute best, the most Simon-y Simon, and fortunately we all agreed.”She goes on to say “he’s totally cute and adorable and HILARIOUS, and his chemistry with Lily and Jamie is off the charts. I’ve wanted him for Simon for ages so I am pretty much totally and entirely happy.”

Yup, us too.



    Oh my GOOOOOOOOOD. I love him. He’s perfect! So cute!!

    This was so important because simon is my favorite character. I am SO glad that didn’t screw him up like they did jace.


      Agreed, but I actually like JCB for Jace. I didn’t at first, but he’s growing on me. though his personal life leaves something to be desired.


    He is so cute, and if Cassie likes him, I’m on board too. He has to be FUNNY though. My Simon is a dorky comic book loving, silly guy. I hope he does him justice, but it sounds like he will.


    I love how dorky he looks, but the hair just isn’t right. I like Robert’s hair, but it’s just not right for simon…Maybe they’ll play with it a bit and make it look more like MY Simon, or maybe I’ll just have to get over it 🙂
