Some CoHF spoilery art for you! With Clockwork Princess now out for a month, I’ve decided it’s time to start mixing up answers about Clockwork Princess and cut scenes with a few teasers for the last book in that other series. This teaser isn’t words, it’s art by Cassanda Jean. I won’t make any promises about what it means but I think, like the previous piece, and the other previous piece, you’ll like it. ;) It IS A SPOILER for an actual scene, so it’s under a cut.
Simon and Isabelle will have “moments” in the movie to set up the series.
“Simon,” said a voice at his shoulder, and he turned to see Izzy, her face a pale smudge between dark hair and dark cloak, looking at him, her expression half-angry, half-sad. “I guess this is the part where we say goodbye?”
SWEET JESUS SHES PERF
lets take a moment to appreciate Isabelle in the EXACT dress as in the book
A few questions and answers:
“Will Jemima dye her hair/wear contacts to play Isabelle?”
She will surely dye her hair. Contacts probably, but some people/actors can’t wear them (Daniel Radcliffe never could, that’s why Harry always had blue-green eyes, allergies I think) so I cannot make promises about stuff that is basically “the costume department’s decision down the road in connection with the actor’s physical limitations.” I am assured they will do everything they can to make the actors fit the physical descriptions in the book, where appropriate.
“What was Jemima’s audition like?”
Really good! She did a scene with Clary, but she also did the scene where she talks about Alec being gay — “I love my brother, I’d do anything for him, but I can’t help him with this” and was lovely and passionate. I was like, That’s damn right, you love your brother! He’s a good guy! She convinced me.
“Can you tell us any of the other actresses/actors that are auditioning for the other parts?”
I asked and — no, I can’t. It’s actually I believe against union laws. If the actors want to talk about it, they can, but I can’t talk about it for them.
“When will you be able to tell us about Alec?”
Would that I knew. Golf ball, I’m telling you. Still, when I return from Internet purgatory, you can’t say it isn’t DRAMATIC!
Jemina West as Isabelle Lightwood
This will probably be up on Deadline and all the other good places soon enough, but Sony told me I could spill the news so I AM GOING TO. I’ve been traveling and doing Dark Artifices research in Italy and Vatican City so I wasn’t hiding from y’all, but it is nice to come back with BIG FUN NEWS TO SHARE.
Our Isabelle is going to be:
Jemima West. She’s beautiful (like whoa) and really talented. You can see her as Vittoria on The Borgias right now. And before anyone freaks out that she is blonde, she’ll be dying her hair for the role. :) She had a lot of Izzy’s toughness and directness in her audition. I like her.
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. I have to go collect photos and info and things. …
CoB casting news: Has Chelsea Hobbs auditioned for Isabelle?
There is also speculation that Phoebe Tonkin (Secret Circle) might have auditioned for the role, but she has never responded to claims. Last week she tweeted that she was beginning to read ‘City of Bones.’
