Lily Collins has a huge year coming up!
The 21-year-old actress recently sat down with MTV to chat about not only her role in Abduction opposite Taylor Lautner, but also about her new role as Clary Fray in Mortal Instruments. Check out what she had to say:
On her role in Abduction: “I’m extremely proud. This was my biggest role to date. Of course I was nervous. Especially because there was so much action and all those stunts and I’m trying not to fall when I’m going through rivers at 4:30 in the morning. There was so much going on, and every single emotion you can think of we had to go through in the span of 30 seconds because so much happens too quickly. From what I’ve seen, I’m thrilled.”
On scoring the lead in Mortal Instruments: “That is going to be a whole new world for me. When I found out I was cast, I found out that people were tweeting about me getting cast as their heroine. I know that I’m playing a character in a book that is very popular, but I forget that books have so many fans, that if they don’t agree with the casting, it could go terribly wrong. I was so grateful that all these people were tweeting like, ‘Oh, we’re so excited. We totally see her as Clary, and we can’t wait to see what she’ll do.’ I don’t know what I would have done if people responded negatively.”
On who she thinks should play Jace: “A lot of the fans has been tweeting that [they want] Alex Pettyfer. I don’t know the process. He’s also going to have a great 2011. The fans of a series like this have such a strong opinion on who they feel would be great as a character, and I feel that’s very backed up because they know the characters in and out. I trust a lot of the fans in their opinions. I don’t know if there are going to be auditions or anything. I’ve heard Logan Lerman thrown out for Simon.”
