Lily Collins: Jamie Campbell Bower 'Nailed It' As Jace Wayland

Lily Collins is super excited Jamie Campbell Bower is joining the cast of The Mortal Instruments as Jace Wayland!

The 22-year-old actress actually found out that Jamie, 22, was her Jace over the internet! Lily told MTV News that she already had a strong feeling it was going to be him when he came in for the audition.

“I think we literally, we found our Jace that day,” Lily said.

The Mortal Instruments author Cassandra Clare had a similar feeling when she saw Jamie‘s audition footage. “He auditioned with Lily, and he and Lily had incredible chemistry that sort of blazed off the screen… I’m watching the audition, and I literally started crying because that was my Jace and Clary on the screen.”

Check out what else Lily has to say about Jamie as Jace below!

    Isn’t Jace muscular??? I don’t know if he is but ill give him a chance he’s a great actor… please fix his hair in the movie…hair cut or fix it into nice curls like jace has…

  • william herondale


    True. I don’t really like this choice, but that’s mostly because of his hair. If that’s fixed and his acting is exceptional, I don’t think I’ll have any problems with him being Jace Wayland.

    i hate Jamie, Alex pettyfer would be a million times better. I am not afraid to admit it!!!!!!!!!!!! Sorry to those of you that like him and also Lily Collins can take a hike she does not belong in the city of Bones someone else should do it!!

    Not very happy about Lily or Jamie to be honest. I think Lily is a great actress, so I really do think she can pull it off. On the other hand, Jamie is nothing like how I picture Jace. I was so disappointed when I saw he got the part. When I saw that Josh Hutcherson was casted as Peeta I was mad too, but he turned out to be insanely impressive as Peeta. If Jamie nails Jace as well as Josh nailed Peeta, I won’t be angry at all. Just my opinion.
