Should Castle’s Molly Quinn Have Been Cast Over Lily Collins for the Mortal Instruments Movie?
Castle cutie Molly Quinn recently voiced the role of protagonist Clary Fray in the audiobooks for fourth and fifth installments of the young adult sci-fi series The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare — but much to our surprise, Molly was skipped over for the role in the upcoming film adaptation of the first book, City of Bones. What gives?
Twenty-three-year-old Lily Collins was cast in the role instead, and while we can't deny her talents — we absolutely adored her in The Blind Side — we can't help but wonder why Molly wasn't handed the part on a silver platter.
According to the author of the series, Clary has red hair, fair skin, and freckles — which is basically Molly in a nutshell. Lily, a natural brunette, had to dye her hair for the part. And it goes without saying that Molly already knows the character inside and out — not only did the 18-year-old actress narrate the role of Clary, but she also loves the series.
"I'm a huge fan," Molly said at Comic-Con back in 2010. "If anyone has not read it, you have to read it!"
What do you guys think? Will Lily make a good Clary Fray, or does this role belong to Molly? Tell us your thoughts below!
