Things are definitely underway on the City of Bones set as the studio prepares for their August 20th filming start date. Yesterday Cassie announced two new cast members; CCH Pounder as Madame Dorothea and Aidan Turner as Luke Garroway and from a TMI_Institute exclusive it seems that background actors have already begun their casting call for the Pandemonium club scene that opens the book and most likely will also be the opening scene in the movie.
We had a chance to talk briefly with one of the background actor hopefuls about her experience auditioning for a part in movie's Pandemonium scene (I wonder if I can still try as as the curvy black girl who gives Clary a dirty look?).
our exclusive source said that she went for the casting call last week in a preliminary search for background actors and was told to arrive dressed in funky clothes and hair with lots of piercings and tattoos. Once she had arrived her picture was taken alongside other casting hopefuls (probably to compare funky Pandemonium looks) and she was told that the studio will make their decision soon she believes that filming for this part may begin in early September or October.
Each day City of Bones comes closer and closer to becoming an on-screen reality and we can't wait to see the world that we all painted in our minds splashed across the big screen around this time next year.
We at The Mortal Institute wish our casting-hopeful friend all the best as she waits to hear back from the studio, we're sure her look was great and can't wait to hear what happens next!
