Fantasy red-carpet dress: ‘Anything by Vivienne Westwood is extraordinary.’
Your style icon: ‘Audrey Hepburn had an elegance that surpasses any time period. When she smiled, she lit up a room.’

Day 4 of Cassandra Clare’s Set Diary from The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones #TMIMovie

Posted on has partnered with Screen Gems to bring fans of The Mortal Instruments an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at the first movie, City of Bones, in the form of diary entries written by author Cassandra Clare while on set in Toronto. has now released Day Four:

Day Four: Thursday

Today is a really late start day because shooting went late the night before, and there’s a mandated 12-hour turnaround for cast and crew so everyone can sleep. It’s also the day we have Grace, who is our girl from the Make-a-Wish foundation, on set. It was her wish to be on set for the City of Bones movie. I’ve actually corresponded with Grace before and sent her a bunch of iratze charms, which she still has. I’m so touched she kept them so we have a little moment, hugging and dancing around the costume room. Grace sobers up when she sees some of the Magnus’ party costumes, which are ever so slightly on the naked side. Fun, though. Brocade jackets! Crazy boots! Backless dresses! Sparkles everywhere! Grace winds up with a nicely tasteful look.

Lily Collins and City of Bones director Harald Zwart attend Clockwork Princess Book Tour in LA

Posted on

As we told you previously, Clary Fray actress Lily Collins was scheduled to attend the Clockwork Princess Book Tour at Barnes & Noble in Los Angeles tonight. Along with her, director Harald Zwart, too, surprised the audience by attending the event for the last book of The Infernal Devices trilogy. Check out photos in the gallery here.

A Tumblr user recorded a video of Lily talking about the characters and what it was like working with Jamie Campbell Bower. You can check that out here.

Here’s what Lily said about working with Jamie:

Working with Jamie was amazing, literally, when I say he’s Jace, he genuinely is Jace. I can’t wait for you guys to see what’s up with the character. He’s got that cockiness, sarcastic, the hot thing going on. He shows a real vulnerability, that you know… it takes a real man to show real vulnerability. Working with him was amazing and you know he’s very supportive but also a real joker.


Fellow authors on the tour with Cassandra Clare, Maureen Johnson and Sarah Brennan tweeted info from the event, which we have compiled below:

  • Harald says he loved filming a movie with a strong female lead, & @cassieclare & @lilycollins are awesome women.
  • If lily could play another tmi character it would be Magnus. Hot, great parties, gets with lots of guys
  • Harald the director says making @cassieclare‘s book into a movie was so much fun, you have no idea. 😉

Some quick Vine videos from the event can be seen below:
