Following a series of tweets, it looks like we might have a new Magnus Bane contender in the running for the role in the highly anticipated The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones movie. Meet Simon Raymond.
According to his website, Simon's first foray into the professional world of film and television began in 2009, when he had his first audition for the pilot “Betwixt.” Since then, Simon has gone on to star in TV shows such as Fringe, Call Me Fitz, Flashpoint, Mayday and Untold Stories of the ER. In addition, Simon had his work showcased internationally when his film “Inversion/Invasion,” premiered at 2010 Columbia Film Festival in NYC.
Having caught the performing bug at the age of 12, Simon decided to finish school first before pursuing the craft of acting full time. Aside from performing in front of the camera, Simon also has a keen interest in photography, writing and dancing.
Simon posted the following his Twitter. Sounds like he is exciting about the casting process:
