#SPOTTED: JONATHAN RHYS MEYERS IN TORONTO FOR “THE MORTAL INSTRUMENTS”
Umm… if he looks this good on a day off, just how good does he look like when he’s glammed-up? Toronto Fans have long been hungry for the incredible Jonathan Rhys Meyers and on a chance run-in (honest!) tonight , I crossed paths with him and a Friend after enjoying some Italian this Canadian Thanksgiving Day.
The brilliant Actor is known best for his eclectic and amazing Body of Work which includes Bend it like Beckham, Woody Allen‘s Match Point and more recently award-worthy turns in CBS Mini-Series Elvis and Showtime‘s The Tudors. He tells me he arrived in Toronto about a week ago to begin work on The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones. This first Adaptation of Cassandra Clare‘s popular Novels has Meyers starring as Arch Villain Valentine Morgenstern, who happens also to be the Biological Father of Clary Fray (Lily Collins) and also the Adoptive Father of Jace Lightwood (Jamie Campbell Bower).
Although filming for The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones is set to wrap early next month, Meyers simultaneously is getting ready to begin work in the Titular Role on upcoming NBC Series, Dracula. Set in London, Dracula poses as an American Businessman who secretly wants to seek revenge on those who ruined his life centuries ago.
Meyers is a true Class Act and noticing off-the-bat our Photo didn’t turn-out the first time, he asked kindly that his lovely Friend take another, before wishing me a Happy Thanksgiving! A real honour – one of the greatest Actors of my Generation.
