Today Cassandra Clare announced that Aidan Turner has landed the role of Luke and CCH Pounder will be portraying Madame Dorothea. Check out the details below, courtesy of Examiner.com.
Aidan Turner is best known for his role as Mitchell in ‘Being Human.’ The Irish actor is getting tons of hype for his upcoming role in both ‘The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey’ and ‘The Hobbit: There and Back Again.’ He will portray the character of Kili in those films.
Luke is Clary’s father figure and is very important and well loved in Clare’s The Mortal Instruments series. “Luke has a hell of a dark past despite his current mild-mannered, bookstore-owning ways. The scars he bears belie his gentle heart — but he could tear you apart with his teeth if you threatened something he cared about,” says Clare about Luke.
CCH Pounder is very well known for her roles on many of the most popular television shows. “You may know her from The Shield. Or The X-Files. Or Warehouse 13. Or ER. Or The West Wing. Or pretty much every cool show in the known universe. Our director’s wanted to work with her for ages and I think she will be amazing,” says Clare.
Madame Dorothea is Clary and Jocelyn’s neighbor and Clary finds that there is much more to her than she thought. Below is an updated list of those attached to the ‘City of Bones’ film, the first in The Mortal Instruments movie franchise.
