Man, Jaime Campbell Bower is just racking up the franchises. To start off, he stars as King Arthur in Camelot on Starz. Not a bad gig. But he’s also Caius in the Twilight movies and plays a young Grindelwald in the final Harry Potter films. Those are three fairly big franchises to be a part of and now he’s adding one more. Bower landed the lead in The Mortal Instruments, a film based off of Cassandra Clare’s novels.
Lily Collins also landed the female lead, Clary Fray. Apparently she can see things that normal people can’t and Bower’s character is one of the people she can see. It has to do with demons, shadows, and stealing her mother back. It sounds interesting, but curse that handsome, talented actor for getting another starring role! Save some for the rest of us, no?
