Yesterday, Cassandra Clare gave us some more casting news about a couple characters. :D Luke and Madame Dorothea. I'm super excited about Luke, because he's hot. <3 Here's Cassie's tumblr post on the news.
Aidan Turner as Luke~
Luke — Clary’s surrogate father figure, he has a hell of a dark past despite his current mild-mannered, bookstore-owning ways. The scars he bears belie his gentle heart — but he could tear you apart with his teeth if you threatened something he cared about.Holly has long insisted Luke is her Fictional Boyfriend, so today, Holly, you have won.
Our Madame Dorothea is CCH Pounder. Cassie post about it on tumblr.
Madame Dorothea was a lot of fun to write. She’s Clary’s downstairs neighbor and a “witch” — the kind with crystal balls and Tarot cards. Her secret is that none of that magic is at all real: it’s a cover for the powerful position she actually does hold in the secret society of Downworlders.You may know her from The Shield. Or The X-Files. Or Warehouse 13. Or ER. Or The West Wing. Or pretty much every cool show in the known universe. Our director’s wanted to work with her for ages and I think she will be amazing. Welcome, CCH!
So guys. Are you as excited as I am? :D
