Okay, here’s news of who will be playing Isabelle Lightwood in the City of Bones movie. According to The Examiner, Cassandra Clare announced that Parisian Jemima West will be playing the role of our straightforward and tough girl dark-haired girl, Isabelle.
“She had a lot of Izzy’s toughness and directness in her audition. I like her,” said Clare on her Tumblr account at the announcement. Phoebe Tonkin, a fan favorite did audition for the role of Isabelle.
If you look her up on IMDB, you’ll notice that she has naturally blond hair, but this picture provided will show how good she looks with dark hair, and it seems fitting. She’s a well-seasoned actress in Europe, having been in quite a few TV series’, with one of her most recent roles being Vittoria in the Showtime series, The Borgias.
Looks like we’ll have to wait a little longer before we find out who will be playing Alec, though.
Clare was about to announce the actor to play Alec but was asked by the studio to hold off on the announcement. She did say that she is very pleased with who will play Alec and that he is British and not Nicholas Hoult. She also confirmed that he has been in other movies/shows and is not Freddie Highmore or Aaron Johnson. Let the guessing begin.
So, what do you think? Is she your Isabelle? Are you excited? Will you be watching The Borgias now?
