Lily collins literally knows nothing about ‘the mortal instruments’ tv show

Clary Fray will rise again — but will Lily Collins reprise her role as the young Shadowhunter?
After “City of Bones” bombed at the box office (it grossed a disastrous $31 million), all plans for further “Mortal Instruments” movies were shelved, but last October, production company Constantin Films announced that they were rebooting the popular YA franchise as a TV series. But there hasn’t been a whole lot of news since the big announcement, which means we still don’t know who will star in the “Mortal Instruments” series. Will casting carry over from “City of Bones” to the TV show, or will Constantin find new actors to take on Clary, Jace and the others?
Speaking to MTV News at the press day for her latest film “Love, Rosie,” Collins dished on whether or not she’s been in talks to return to the Shadow World for the proposed television reboot.
It turns out the 25-year-old actress is pretty much Jon Snow and knows nothing about the series.
“I found out about the TV series the same day the world did,” Collins said. “I know nothing.” However, Collins said she’s “supportive of whatever choices they’re making.”
“I’ll always put that in my memory as being an amazing experience,” she added. “I got to kick ass!”
Whatever happens, at least Clary and Jace’s epic romance will live on.
