We all know him from Transamerica and Gossip Girl, but now’s your chance to win a Keepsake from him. Our v. own Kevin Zegers currently is hard at work in Toronto filming The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, starring as Alec Lightwood, and although eOne Films won’t be releasing the Cassandra Clare Adaptation until August 23, 2013, here’s a little something to give you your fix till then!
Zegers was gracious enough to sign this during TIFF 2012 for me and I’d love one deserving Fan or Shadowhunter to have it.

You’ve seen the Cast Members here on Mr. Will Wong (here and here), but you must check-out MTV‘s First Look of The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones after their recent visit to Toronto. Josh Horowitz chats with Lily Collins, Jamie Campbell Bower, Jemima West, Rob Sheehan and Kevin Zegers in the wee hours of the morning. Read more here.
“It’s got amazing imagery and the CGI is incredible, but it’s not just about that”, says Collins. Sheehan also recalls some Fans who visited the Set here in the first few days of filming, stating “It was quite jarring to be handed a book and asked to sign it… this isn’t my Book and I’m not responsible for any of the words in it. It was quite odd… I even drew boobs in some of the books!”. LOL
For those of us not in the U.S., some kind Shadowhunters have uploaded the Video to YouTube for us all to enjoy:
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.
At last he’s arrived in Toronto, but just as soon as he arrives, he leaves! Taiwanese-Canadian Supermodel and Actor Godfrey Gao is long overdue for his break Stateside and just may finally get it as Magnus Bane in upcoming Toronto-filmed Adaptation of Cassandra Clare‘s The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones.
By total coincidence, I spotted Gao packing his luggage into his Van just as he was about to leave his Hotel, headed to the Airport. He had arrived in Toronto only a few days ago, burning the Midnight Oil as the Cast and Crew had filmed scenes overnight. The statuesque Gao, who was Urban-Casual today in sunglasses, was easily identifiable from a distance. “Short and sweet”, he tells me about his stay here, which included him fulfilling a lifetime dream of seeing the MuchMusic Building on Queen Street in-person after having watched the Station often when he was younger. He genuinely is thoughtful – surely his Malaysian Mother instilling good values into him – as he called-upon his Driver to walk over and help snap a Pic.
In The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, Gao‘s 800-year-old Magnus Bane is hired by Clary Fray‘s (Lily Collins) Mother to erase her memories, eventually admitting that he’s watched her grow-up from afar. There may even be a bit of an attraction also to the Character of Alec Lightwood (Kevin Zegers).
We’ll soon see next Summer when the Movie gets an August 23, 2012 release via eOne Films in Canada.
Although she was late getting to work today, lovely French-British Talent Jemima West went the extra mile for a couple Fans. West currently is in Toronto filming The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, starring as the fierce and dangerous Shadowhunter, Isabelle Lightwood. The Actress who is rather popular in France, more recently gained widespread exposure as Vittoria in The Borgias. Expect that popularity to spread like wildfire with the release of this first Film Adaptation of Cassandra Clare‘s top-selling Novel Series.
Even with little make-up, West looked radiant and although posing for a Snap, I had promised not to post it online at her request. You should see her beautiful smile! She was however, amazing enough to sign a Photo which I will offer to one lucky Reader following on Twitter. Simply, Re-Tweet the below before October 7, 2012. All are welcome to enter!

eOne Films releases The Mortal Instruments in Canada on August 23, 2012.
Coming out to support his Buddy Lily Collins, Kevin Zegers attended the Premiere for The Writers at Ryerson Theatre last night and although rushed, he still made time for Fans. The Actor flew back to Toronto late Thursday to continue work on The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones and over the weekend was spotted with his soon-to-be-Wife, Jamie Feld, partying with Bradley Cooper and Ryan Gosling.
Careful not to shine the spotlight his direction at the Premiere for Girlfriend Lily Collins’ The Writers, Jamie Campbell Bower zipped through the Red Carpet, signing a few Autographs for Fans last night at Ryerson Theatre. Declining Photos with Fans, Bower tells them he’s under the weather right now.
Get well soon, Jamie! Perhaps some Tea & Honey in those Starbucks Mugs I got you and Lily a while back?
Lily Collins continues to win my heart and her choice of a Balmain Dress at yesterday’s Red Carpet Premiere for The Writers stands out as the Best Dress of TIFF 2012, thus far. The Actress who happens already to be in-town filming The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones was ushered along quickly under Handler’s orders, but still managed to sign some Autographs and only one lucky Fan got a Photo with her!
Although he isn’t here for TIFF 2012 per say, Canadian-born Actor Kevin Zegers flew-in from Los Angeles tonight after a quick break. He currently is at work on Sony Screen Gems’ The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, which films in the City over the next couple months. Wondering if he’ll be showing Co-Star Lily Collins some support Sunday night at her Premiere for The Writers? Hmm.
