Lily Collins and Jamie Campbell Bower are not complete strangers, quite the opposite. In addition to being co-stars in one of Netflix‘s most popular movies, they were also a couple in 2013, after meeting during the filming.
The stars bring to life two of the beloved characters by Cassandra Clare, who has established herself as one of the bestselling authors in recent years. The movie was directed by Harald Zwart (The Karate Kid).
The project’s development began after Constantin Film acquired the film rights to the book series. Despite its cancellation, many fans believe it has been unjust and consider it one of the best adaptations.
