While at WonderCon actor Kevin Zegers (Alec Lightwood) chatted with Hollywood Crush about performing his own stunts in the City of Bones movie. Kevin told HC that he, "...showed up about four weeks before we started, and it went through filming, so then on lunch break we would go and rehearse the fight sequences." He also said that, "Harald Zwart [director] wanted us to do our own stuff, which I think when you watch the movie you can tell. It's sort of great, and you can see that it's us, and it's violence and just as, like, a guy, I saw the new trailer and it looks awesome. It looks like a big action movie, also obviously, the love story and everything are going on and the fantasy stuff. The action stuff looks awesome."
He finished with saying the training and stunt work was "brutal" and "I'm like the old one of the group. The young twenties kids were very spry and bounced back. When we finished I was very tired."
