MTV has interviewed Clary (Lily Collins), Simon (Robert Sheehan), Magnus (Godfrey Gao) -which you can watch here- and today, MTV released the interview with Jace (Jamie Campbell Bower).
Here's is the MTV video:
"What I love about him is the fact that he's actually a bit of a douchebag," Bower said during a 3 a.m. interview on the Toronto set. "He's not like a meathead, he's just sarcastic and rude."If you aren't located in the US, you can watch this on youtube:
And for good reason, as fans of the series can attest. Jace has a complicated background (one we'll leave vague to avoid spoilers), but suffice it to say, this history has gone a long way towards making him the oft-prickly character he is today. Bower commended director Harald Zwart for capturing not only Jace's moodiness, but that of the monster-ridden world in which he and his fellow Shadowhunters exist.
"I think there is a darkness that Harald has brought to the piece that is easily lost in adaptations, particularly of YA novels," Bower said. "And there's a reality to it, as well, which is nice. You
know, it's very easy to go into fantasyland too quickly — he says wearing a dress, effectively. Every girl's got to have a little black dress — that's how I look at it."
