SDCC 2013: Kevin Zegers On Becoming A Shadowhunter In The Mortal Instruments

Posted by Perri Nemiroff On July - 20 - 2013 0 Comment

Mortal Instruments PosterThere’s really no better treat than being hand selected to read for a role in a highly anticipated book-to-film adaptation with franchise potential, and so was the case for actor Kevin Zegers.

In “The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones,” Zegers steps in as Alec Lightwood, one of three Shadowhunters who inadvertently cross paths with a “mundane” named Clary Fray (Lily Collins) at a New York City nightclub. Shadowhunters are a breed of humans with angelic blood, giving them the abilities and resources to dispatch demons and to do so discretely by being invisible to the average human eye. However, when Clary catches the group in the middle of an execution, they have no choice, but to guide her through a life she never even knew she had.

While readying for the “Mortal Instruments” Hall H panel and letting the thrill of taking a private jet to Comic Con sink in, Zegers sat down to tell ShockYa about his experience snagging his role in the film, the parallels between each member of the cast and their character, his hope to wield Thor’s hammer, and more. Catch it all for yourself in the video interview below.
