Jamie Campbell Bower: I Nailed the 'Mortal Instruments' Audition

Jamie Campbell Bower dished to MTV about nailing The Mortal Instruments audition for the role of Jace Wayland and how he prepped for the role.

The 22-year-old actor said, “I nailed it. I mean, I just got off a plane the day before, and this was a big deal for me, going for this audition. Going for a screen test in L.A. with a big studio, with people that I have heard about in stories and people that I admire.”

Jamie added, “I did a lot of preparation,” he explained. “I came out of it sort of feeling like I’ve done the best that I can do. And if they accept that, that’s perfect, and if they don’t, then I’ve done what I can do.”

    what happened with Alex Pettyfer?

    He is not Jace Wayland… I love the books but I’m sorely disappointed by the casting of the movie…

    I am a HUGE fan of Mortal Instruments and Infernal Devices and I agree they have not done a great job with casting the characters, I was upset about Lily but as soon as they announced Jace I forgot about her and was furious about him for one: NO TWILIGHT ACTORS IN MORTAL INSTRUMENTS!! If we want these movies to be successful we can’t cross the characters of movies like this, fans from both movies will be upset and you can’t win. They had many great auditions for Jace (I would have LOVED Pettyfer, i’m a big fan of his and he is who I pictured as Jace) but I would have been fine with most other actors who auditioned for this role except him, I’m sorry I just don’t see him as Jace, I had really high expectations of this movie, and still do, I just hope they can fulfill them even though, in my opinion, he looks nothing like the Jace I love.

    He IS Jace! People should stop judging him. The movie hasn’t even come out yet. I’m sure he’ll do great.

    If you’re truly a fan of Jamie, you know very well that he not only share “good looks’ with the Jace character but lots of other traits too. He is funny, sarcastic, daring & vulnerable at the same time. He is going to shine on that role, people like it or not.

    This guy better get rid of the pansy arms and all that jive before he decides to take on this role. Jamie please start working out, build yourself up to play the role of Jace the way the readers perceive it. Right now you look as intimidating as a computer programmer. Hard work and dedication will earn my respect. Don’t let this story go to shit. And no English accents for god sake. No one who has read the books, at least not I, expected Jace to have an English accent, and gumby arms.
