On May 31, 2011, Jamie's casting as Jace for the film adaptation was announced.[1] Jace was cast after an extensive search for the role and was one of the three people (along with Ed Speleers and Leebo Freeman) who Lily Collins, who had been cast as lead Clary Fray, read and screen-tested with.[2]


  • Jamie and his City of Bones leading lady Lily Collins began dating during filming in 2012, though the relationship ended in August 2013. They reconciled briefly in 2015.
  • Jamie played Joe in the Bend It Like Beckham musical, during its West End premiere in 2015, a role first played by Jonathan Rhys Meyers, who plays Jamie's onscreen father figure in The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones.
  • Jamie has appeared in a couple of other book-to-screen adaptations, including appearing as the vampire Volturi member Caius in three out of the five Twilight movies, and as a young Gellert Grindelwald in the 2010 Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1.
