Aidan Turner was at the The Mortal Instruments City of Bones Premiere in Los Angeles on August 12th. Along with him were Lily Collins, Jamie Campbell Bower, Aidan Turner, Robert Sheehan and many others! 30 high quality photos have been added to our gallery.
Check out our first look at The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones above — the first teaser trailer has been released! It’s actually respectfully long for a so-called teaser, giving fans an in-depth look into the world created by Cassandra Clare. Unfortunately, not much of Aidan Turner in the video, but you can at least see a glimpse of him as Luke Garroway (at 1:27). In case you missed it, there’s also a new poster for the film.
Author Cassandra Clare has posted a major casting announcement on her official blog: Aidan Turner will portray Lucian “Luke Garroway” Graymark, a werewolf, in the upcoming film adaptation of The Mortal Instruments. Here’s what she had to say about Luke and Aidan:
Luke — Clary’s surrogate father figure, he 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.
Holly has long insisted Luke is her Fictional Boyfriend, so today, Holly, you have won:
He was terrific in “Being Human” and there’s massive buzz about his upcoming role in The Hobbit. He’s Irish so perhaps he and Robert Sheehan can sit around and talk about Irish things.
Looking more the flannel-shirt wearing Luke we know and love. Harald was so excited to work with him he was hopping around. I’m pretty excited about him playing Luke myself! Welcome Aidan!
Filming begins on August 20th, and the first film in the franchise – City of Bones – is expected to hit theaters nearly one year later on August 23, 2013.
