Rumor has it that the role of Alec Lightwood could go to either Ed Westwick, Christian Cooke, Douglas Booth or even Harry Lloyd, according to fan predictions. We know that Douglas Booth is out, and Harry Lloyd seems a bit too old...good looking but not younger looking than any of the Magnus hopefuls.
I’ll go on record and cast my vote for Christian Cooke! Cassie said, “Alec and Isabelle have to seem like they really could be brother and sister…” if you put Jemima West and Christian Cooke side by side...well the proof is right there ,isn’t it?
Now let’s try Jemima and Ed
Jemima and Harry
Either way, we’ll have to wait a few more days to find out for sure but in the meantime, here’s a little scoop on two of our Alec favorites.
Ed Westwick is an English actor best known for his role as Chuck Bass on the television drama Gossip Girl. He is also a musician and co-narrator of the Clockwork Prince audiobook (does this give him additional edge?)
Born June 27, 1987 in Stevenage, Hertfordshire, Ed trained at the National Youth Theatre and then went on to appear in the British television series Doctors, Causality and Afterlife. In 2007 he began his role as Chuck Bass on The CW’s Gossip Girl winning him several awards for role, his looks as well as Breakthrough Talent.
In 2009 Ed played in the sequel to the cult classic Donnie Darko and made a guest appearance in Californication as a student with a vampire fascination (maybe this also gives him a little something extra.)
Only time will tell and we’re all sitting on the edge of our seats waiting for the news from Cassie, but until then we have a lot of information circulating to talk about! What do you guys think? Based on the pics above and the info on both hopefuls who do you think might snag the part?
