Phoebe Tonkin Cast Request for Isabelle Lightwood

Now that casting for The Mortal Instruments is heating up, I feel that it is high time to start announcing some of my own casting requests for the movie. While I am still undecided on many of the characters, I am firmly decided on one: Isabelle Lightwood. After watching The Secret Circle, a show on The CW that was recently cancelled, I fell in love with Phoebe Tonkin. Her acting skills are absolutely brilliant, not to mention that she is gorgeous! While reading City of Lost Souls, by Cassandra Clare, I couldn’t help but imagine Phoebe Tonkin everytime that Isabelle had an appearance in the book. I just absolutely love her.

Accoring to, Phoebe Tonkin  has recently starting reading The Mortal Instruments.  Could this be a sign that she’s going to audition? You can bet that my fingers are crossed! Some pictures of Tonkin can be found below:

What do you guys think about Phoebe Tonkin as Isabelle Lightwood? Again, this is not an official casting, this is my own casting request. Who do you guys think would be best for Isabelle Lightwood? Any ideas? Let me know in the comments section below!

That’s all for now, folks. See you next time!

  • I totally agree Nichole! Although I haven’t watched The Secret Circle super consistently I have enjoyed some of the charactors her being one of the main ones I enjoyed. I would think she would make a great Isabelle. (one thing I can’t seem to figure out though is….are the Lightwoods supposed to have british accents)?
    Thanks for posting!

  • Apparently the Lightwoods are supposed to have British accents. It’s because that’s the native accent from Idris. Don’t worry, I didn’t know this information until just a few weeks ago when Casandra Clare did an interview. I know that they have like 8 people in the line for Izzy. I believe 6 are British, one is American and one is Australian (hopefully Phoebe Tonkins!). I’m assuming that the American’s will have to pull off a British accent.
