Open Casting Call for The Mortal Instruments: City of Ashes

Please note that we have NO control over who is cast. We recieve multiple emails to us giving details and asking to be cast. This is purely an information post as FandomsNews is not affiliated with anything to do with City of Ashes. We are just a fan site.

City of Ashes, the sequel to the highly anticipated City of Bones, begins filming September 23rd of this year.


Do you live in the toronto area? If so, your in luck! Toronto Film will be holding a casting call for all “Species”, aka looking for downworlders AND some shadowhunters. Heres what they are looking for:


Goth/punk/fetish types, they can have been in the bar scene in the first movie 18-35 yrs, any ethnicity.


Lumberjack/biker types, big, rough, hairy, 18-45 yrs, any ethnicity.


Exotic looking/Asian/Persian/interesting looking MEN ONLY any ethnicity EXCEPT for Caucasian. The following actor Godfrey Gao plays ‘Magnus Bane’ the ‘head’ warlock. This should give you an idea of what they’re looking for 18-45 yrs.


Pale, skinny, fragile with wide set eyes. Lily Cole is playing the ‘Queen of the Faeries’. Men and Women 18-40 yrs, any ethnicity.


Young, fit performers (gymnasts and swimmers not bodybuilders). Most of the lead actors are ‘shadowhunters’ 18-35 yrs, any ethnicity.

Rumor has it that the oh so famous Seelie Queen will be played by Lily Cole, is she the Faerie queen you imagined, tell us in the comments below!

  1. Hello

    My name is Zoe. I am 13 and would LOVE WITH ALL MY HEART to be in the mortal instruments. I have read all the books and know almost everything about TMI or TID. I would love to be a shadowhunter, werewolf, or vampire. I have had expierience on camera because I was a model but when I moved I had to stop. I am IN LOVE with the mortal instruments and would do ANYTHING to be in the movie. I live in IL, Chicago though but if there is any place in close I might be able to give it a shot. I was kind of thinking of being Muareen because she is around my age but even just being a extra would be AMAZING!! I do think I would look best as a shadowhunter or vampire mostly. Again I AM IN LOVE WITH TMI And being in the movie would be AMAZING
