    Hi, I’m Sara, I’m 14 years old and I live in Italy. Since I was a child I love acting and I love playing a character and putting myself in his shoes. At 9/10 years old I participated in various theatrical performances with an italian company and at the end of these everyone got up and applauded me. But for many reasons I abandoned. Now I’m grew up enough. If you have any project pls don’t discard me. Pls read this message. In any case thank you.

    Hi! My name is Jerica, I’m 16 years old, and currently in highschool. I have black hair, and am American. I’ve ever tried acting before, but want to give it a shot! I have read the entire series and absolutely loved it! My favorite of the series was “The City of Glass”. I would love to audition, and would be alright with having any role, even if it is an extra.

    Hair colour: straight light brown
    Eye colour: green
    Nationality: Australian
    Interests: netball, basketball, piano
    Experience: school plays
    About me: I am the eldest of 5 children. I am currently in high school but working hard to hopefully become a doctor. I coach and umpire netball and basketball. I love to read anything ranging from magazines to novels to newspapers.
    What it would mean to me: when I read I picture myself as the character and whilst reading the mortal instrument series by Cassandra Clare I picture myself as Maia. The way she talks and acts in the book make me feel as if I am the one kissing Simon and hitting Jordan. I feel like I connect to this character.

    Thank you for the consideration,

The particular role i would like to play is Maia Roberts. She was one of my favorite characters and i know i could play her role well. All i need is the opportunity to show you what i can do. These books were a big part of my life. I started reading after I moved to a new city. When I didn’t have friends in real life, I had my friends in these books. I’d spend hours with these books in my hand. It would mean so much to be a part of this; in any part. Thank you for your time.

Again, I’ve never acted on a professional setting, but I have gone to casting calls and have been told that I’m a natural at it. I hope to hear from you guys soon and I would be honored to work with you guys and on such an amazing project. Thank you very much in advance for your time and patience.

    Hello, I’m Mattaya Gibbs, I have read most of the Mortal Instruments series, and I love it. Each book is filled with suspense and action, and remind me that even if your different, you still have the power to save the day. I am going in to 8th grade, and have already had some acting experience in community plays. As well as my sister and I make up plays and put them on for our family about once a month or so, complete with choreography and singing. While in 7th grade, I took the ACT, and scored a 19, and have been an all A student since kindergarten. I would really enjoy the opportunity to work in this movie.

  21. Hope Hawkins

    Hello, I’m Hope Hawkins. As you put it, I believe I am “perfect for this movie phenomenon” for several reasons. 😉 I have experience in acting and enjoy it so much! I am thirteen, but look a few years older. I am tall for my age, which helps me look a bit older than I am. I am thin with dirty blonde hair and brown eyes. I love acting and I love this book series. I would be more than honored to have a chance to audition for this amazing film.

    Name: Hope Hawkins
    Age: 13 (often mistaken for older)
    Race: Caucasian
    Height: 5’9
    Build: Tall and Thin but Athletic
    Hair: Straight, Medium Length, Dirty Blonde
    Eyes: Brown
    Phone: 404-536-4737

    I believe I am suitable for a role in this film. I have read the series and feel connected to the characters. I understand their feelings and how they think, which makes me more suitable for a role than someone who has not read the books or doesn’t quite understand the characters. I also have experience with acting. I can sing reasonably well and am a beginner guitarist. I also learn quickly and can adapt to changes in roles and scripts.

    If you have any questions please do not hesitate to call, text, or email me.

    I thank you for reading this and considering me for auditions. Have a wonderful life. 🙂

    Thank you,
    Hope Hawins

    Hello my name is Cameron Lee and I’m a 15 year old female. I’ve loved these for a year or two and I’ve kept up with the series every since. The books inspire me to better count on my strength and the strength of those around me instead of pointing out the weakness. It has really giving power and to play a roll in the movies and/ or T.V shows would be and honor. I have black-ish brown, really curly, to the shoulder, hair with really dark brown eyes ( they look black unless your an inch from my face. I am 5″5 / 5″6 and mixed. I can play younger or older than I am. Like if I played Maia that would be awesome, but any character really would do. I get good grades, athletic, 99lbs, smart, responsible, has a great attitude, get along well with others, mature, loves modeling and acting, music ( I play instruments ), draw, dance, write, and love combat and action. I really just hope you’ll give me a chance on this. I really think I could really fit a part in a role. I’ve acted out and read this series a million times. So I guess now I say Thank u for this little chance for u could hear me.

  31. Jada Butler

    Brown, naturally curly hair (usually worn straight, but can change!)
    Soft brown eyes
    Toned athletic body shape

    At 18 years of age, I’ve completed four years of drama, partaken in four years of private acting lessons through Beverly Houck of the Yocum Institute, and under direction of Joel Gory of Metamorphis Acting Company. I’ve done three years of modeling in the past (with Boscovs), and I am a fun and easy person to be with. I’ve been told that I take direction well, I can become whatever and whoever you want me to be, and I will always play a character as true to real life as possible.

    I believe that I am highly qualified in playing the part of Maia Roberts. I’ve read all of Cassandra Clare’s shadowhunter works (TMI, TID, and the Bane Chronicles, including the Simon Ascending shorts) and am very familiar with the plot, characters, and character relationships.

    I currently live in Pennsylvania, and heading for New York soon to be a journalist and actor. This would be a wonderful opportunity and a dream come true if given the chance to audition.

    Thank you so much, and please, notice me! You never know what treasures are hidden beneath the sea, so dive in and take a chance.

  32. Millie

    Hi I’m Millie and I have brown eyes and brown hair with gold streaks.
    I am almost 12 years old and I’m roughly 4″9 (I Ms short for my age).
    I don’t mind being an extra or speaking and I live in Australia.
    My experience is being the main character in a play called stations of the cross, where about 1,000 people attended.
    I have read all the mortal instruments books so I know exactly how shadow hunters think.
    I know I will probably not hear back from you so I’m definitely not getting my hopes high.
    Anyway thank you to anyone who takes the time to read this.

  33. Ophélie

    It’s hard to tell for what you would be perfect when you don’t know who you must compare yourself to, but I do think I could bring something, clearly not as a character who already has an actor, but maybe to some side creature. I think an accent could bring a little something to a creature and since my mother tongue is french I do have one. I must specify though that it’s not a France French accent but a Canadien French accent. I also know a bit of Spanish and German if that can help. My height is 5″8 and my weight 125lbs. I have dark hair & dark eyes & my natural skin color is a bit tan. I have always been interested in surnatural creatures and I know a lot about them. I also know that I’m writing this way too late, but if you don’t try, you get nothing, so why not? And that’s pretty much it…

    Hi my name is Lina I live in Kentucky but I was raised in New Jersey.I am a huge fan of mortal instruments and so is my mom she loves the books all of the books what a great surprise if I was in it. She would be so excited.Anyway I go to school and I take theater class with Beth Marlowe she was a small actor when she was younger she always told me to dream big and never look back on the past.I have a lot of drama in my life I still do in school and she said it’ll help in my acting career but that it should just make me stronger and if it doesn’t ignore it she would tell me. I was always afraid what people thought about me not what I think about myself but she said that just let it go because i’m never going to be the actor I want to be if I keep holding onto that so I just have to look through it. I love mortal instruments it’s a really good movie I love the book to really good I really want to be in this movie. It’s also another way to get my career started as an actress to becoming movie star. please take this under consideration thank you for listening.

  37. Savy

    Hi, to whoever reads this. My name is Savy, I have a last name but I would prefer to just go by Savy (and they say to never put your full name on the Internet; my teachers would be *so* proud). I am 15 going on 16 and I still don’t have my permit. I am 5’2 1/2 and I barely pass the requirements to be an astronaut. I’ve always loved to act, but I’ve never acted before. Unless you count in front of a giant mirror I have. I am actually in the band, not in drama. I have a horrible singing voice, but I sing in the shower and while walking around my house. Currently, I am teaching myself to dance. It doesn’t go well because every orher step I take, I fall down. I will not tell you my weight; it is my own personal business, and it’s just a number. I’m not overweight, but I don’t want a number to define me as “pretty”. A special skill of mine is that I can whistle through my tongue and I am very, VERY good at squeaking on the clarinet. I am trained in the art of Taekwondo and I am very passionate about sparring.

    Why should you pick me, you ask (if you are out there)?
    Welll why shouldn’t you? I don’t have experience, but everyone has to start somewhere. I haven’t even finished the book series and I’m not obssessed with them like a lot of people here. Honestly, I just want to act. It doesn’t matter to me if I am Clary or Demon Girl #1. I can’t draw, I don’t have red hair, and I have weird looking toes. But I am passionate. I have dreams that I will accomplish. I am determined and optimistic, and I am fair. I see the world more than it actually is. I connect to people, whether they be in a book I’ve read or the kid who sits next to me in bio. I see what they do and I find reasons to why they do it. I see their motives and their hearts.

    I hope that whoever you choose to star in this film fits the role perfectly, because I don’t want to cry at how they aren’t their character before I go to sleep at night.

  38. Lily

    I’m Lily Kelley. And if love the role of clary. I’m 18 years old and am an AP art student. I’m very awkward but love to talk to people. I’m 5’4″ and love wearing black. I have read the first 4 books and know her character very well. I dye my hair red enough to know I can pull it off and will express clary fray in a very awkwardly expressive way. I’m in the middle of drama class in high school and have minimum experience acting, but will adapt to play the role with a passion. I strive for perfection and can be relied on.

    My sincerest hopes on joining your cast,
    Lily Kelley

  39. Josiah Cross

    My name is Isobella Jackson and I am based in East Sussex, England, near to London. I am able to travel and have always had a valid passport. I have not acted in any films or TV shows, but have been in multiple play productions, as well as currently taking Double Performing Arts (B-Tech Diploma). I avidly enjoyed reading The Mortal Instrument series and I would love the chance to audition to be involved in this promising thrill-ride of a story. I am diligent, outgoing, motivational and respectful, always striving to improve and to be the best I can be when it comes to my work in acting. The notion of acting makes me giddy and actually taking on roles makes me authentically ecstatic; the idea of being able to convey a character with different habits and ways of thinking to myself is magical and fulfilling to me. Being a part of this project would be both an honor and a challenge, I could not be more up for the job.

    Thank you so much for your time.

I have not been in any films or TV shows, but I have been in play productions since I was 6 years old, and I’m being trained at a performing arts high school, where I am in grade 11. Many of the directors that I have worked with say that I have something to me that draws people in, and I’d like to use it to my ability. I’ve read all of the MORTAL INSTRUMENTS books, and I would like a chance to audition to take part in bringing this work of art to life. I’m hardworking, bubbly and outgoing, but I can buckle down and serious when needed. I love meeting new people and I never get tired of acting. It’s my passion.

    I noticed that one is to submit a comment if one wishes to be considered for a role in the new tv series mortal instruments. I would be honored to be considered for a part as I have had much acting experience and am a fan of the mortal instruments book series. One of my main passions is acting and I am always looking for a chance to expand my knowledge and better my art. I am very easy to work with and take direction well. I am not afraid to take chances and love to be challenged. I work wonderfully with others and put my heart and soul into the parts that I play. I work to keep my mood up beat and work hard to see that my directors dream or vision can be realized.
    I thank you ever so much for your consideration and look forward to hearing from you should you see fit to think of me for a part in this new exciting tv series.
    Once again thank you,
    Sincerely yours,

  45. Caitlyn

    Hi, My name is Caitlyn and I really want this part. I’m a competitive gymnast and I have always wanted to be in a movie. I started watching the show since I was 9 years old. Right now I’m 11 years old, but going to be 12 in a few months. I live in California and I have brown hair, brown eyes. I’m about 5 feet and I really want this opportunity. But I ever since I was 7, I wanted to become an actor. I’m in 6th grade and can speak English and Chinese. I also have some experience in acting because since Kindergarten I was in school plays and always had a solo or main part. I also do synchronized swimming and diving. I have really good grades too.

  46. Lisa Spangberg

    My name is Lisa and I’m from Sweden. I speak fluent English and Swedish. I been a fan of “the immortal instrument” books from the moment I started reading. It would truly be a dream comes true if I would participate in the tv- series.

    Age: 17 years old
    Height: 5’8
    Weight: 62 kg
    Hair: Medium/Light Brown
    Eyes: Dark Brown
    Skin: Fair to medium

  47. Yasemin Akay


    My name is Yasemin and I am a student from California State University, Long Beach. I am 5’8″ with hazel eyes, medium -length brown hair, and fair skin. I am considered to be skinny and I have more of an oval-shaped face. I have experience in modeling and acting as well and would like to show you what I have got! I am applying for the role of Clary Fray!

  48. Elena

    I would like to thank you in advance for taking the time to read this. My name is Elena, I’m fourteen years old and I’m only 5’2 but I’m sure that won’t be an issue as I’m too young to be cast as someone as tall as Isabelle anyway. I’ve been the lead role in several school plays, I’m very athletic, playing rep hockey and I’m big on reading and writing. I can play roles with deep emotions (from immense anger issues to supreme optimism) exceptionally well and nothing would be an obstacle for me as I won’t back down, *especially* of I’m told I can’t do something. I can probably play as young as 12 (11 is stretching it) and as old as 16 if she’s small (with the right makeup and hair that is). I’m not going to include my hair or eye colour because it’s probably irrelevant right now and if you’re interested in me and need to know, you can always contact me to ask.
    It would be am honour and such a magical experience to be in this TV series. I’ve wanted to act since I was old enough to understand that people in movies weren’t actually those people, and it would be spectacular if it was a role from a book I’ve grown to live over the course of several years.
    Thank you, and even if you’re not the least bit interested me and thin I sound like a complete idiot, at least you gave me a shot by reading this. Chances are, you didn’t even do that. But, seeing as if you’re seeing this, you did, much obliged and keep me posted if you’re interested.

  49. Naomi

    I’m Naomi, just recently 18, from North Wales. I’m a natural redhead; it drapes to my mid-back. My eyes are odd (light blue but deepens to a green in the center.) I’m approximately 5’8 but I’m willing to sacrifice a foot or two to make me shorter, because I would love to audition for the role of Clary Fray.
    This book series saved my life. I’m so very passionate about it, and I want nothing more than to express just how much this series means to me on the small screen. I’m a fairly creative person: I write poetry, and I can draw, and I have a passion for music. I’m also a bookworm.
    I really want this role so, so bad. I will even do a self video if you emailed me the monologue.
    And yes, I do have a soul. I don’t want to get overly passionate, because that would most definitely lead to swearing. I believe swearimg expresses passion because it’s impossible to say the F-word with a straight face. Try it. I dare you.

  50. Kestrel

    Hi. I’m Kes. I’m 19 y/o this April, 5’5, average build. Hazel eyes and long wavy dark brown hair. The tips are dyed pink. I have martial arts experience; definitely an asset for such a series.

I currently sing and play in a band. I speak English fluently, and a great deal of Spanish. I think this opportunity would be a major learning experience and the challenge is one I would love to face. @Kestrel_LAOD on Twitter.

  58. Ines Pond

    Hello! My name is Ines, I am 16 years old and french, (but I can speak english fluently, and I am available to move anywhere if it is required.).
    I am quite tall (1m71), I have light brown hair and my eyes are hazel.

    I play since I was 6 years old, and I would like to study at a drama school after high school in 2 years.

    I read every book of The Mortal Instruments series (twice) and I loved not only the history, but also the characters, I found them touching and hilarious, mainly because of Cassandra Clare’s sarcasm.
    I do not know what character I prefer. Sure, I ‘d love to play Clary (who would not ), but I am also interested in the character of Isabelle Lightwood and Maia Roberts, and maybe Camille Belcourt because, well … I am French, and she was in France for a while !

    The reason you should consider my candidacy is that I am passionate about books (I’m actually in a literary way in my high school ) and also by their film adaptation.When I read , I feel like I have to represent me the stage for the understanding of how the author wants us to understand and give life to the characters and give them a chance to express themselves.
    That’s probably why I’m so fascinated with film adaptations ever since.

    Thank you for reading my comment, and perhaps to consider it , and I hope I ‘ll see you soon!
    Au revoir.
