THR: You’ve been attached to Mortal Instruments through a lot of ups and downs. Was that ever disheartening to you — and as an extension of that — how rewarding was it when you finally got to film it?

LC:  I’m a big believer that everything happens for a reason. I knew that by it going through this process, it was gonna come out at the end of it with the appropriate team, the right people involved. I had been a firm believer in the story. I was a fan before I was cast, so it’s something that I’ve been passionate about before really being involved in. I didn’t wanna pass up the opportunity to be able to play this heroine that I’ve admired and I just knew that I believed in the studio that has it, Constantin. I believe in the producers at Constantin and I know that they have a really good taste level when it comes to the creative side. I knew that they wouldn’t put it somewhere where it didn’t belong, so I just didn’t know with timing. I just prayed that it wouldn’t come to the time when they were ready to shoot and I was doing something else ‘cause I thought, “I can’t have it get to this point and then not be able to do it.” I was very fortunate of the timing of everything. I couldn’t be prouder of the project. I’m so excited for people to see it. I really think Harald [Zwart] did an amazing job of taking what could’ve been a CGI-heavy, action-packed reliant film and really made it about heart and character and emotion. Special effects are just the icing on top. I think, as well as hopefully pleasing the fans of the series, we’re going to invite new people in and make them obsessed with the story as well.

THR: Are you attached to star in the rest of the adaptations beyond City of Bones?

LC: Yes. I mean, it just depends on — you kind of have to see how the first one goes. As with any potential franchise, you just leave it up to kind of the fans and to see what happens with the first one and you hope. I signed on because I love Clary and I would want to play her for as long as I can. At the end of the day, you have to kind of step back and remove yourself and go, “OK, we’ll we just have to see what happens” and you go along with the flow. I think all of us would really love to play characters for as long as the fans will have it.

First Look at Jonathan Rhys Meyers in New NBC TV Series DRACULA

PicMonkey CollagedraculaWell, It looks like we are going to see Mr. Jonathan Rhys Meyers as DRACULA right after the world sees him as Valentine Morgenstern in The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones. The new NBC TV drama is set to hit the small screen this fall. Dracula is an 1897 Gothic horror novel by Irish author Bram Stoker.

Here’s a few pictures of DRACULA:

Here’s the official trailer for NBC’s DRACULA:

Sinopsis:

“DRACULA”
Golden Globe winner Jonathan Rhys Meyers (“The Tudors”) stars in this provocative new drama as one of the world’s most iconic characters. It’s the late 19th century and the mysterious Dracula (Rhys Meyers) has arrived in London, posing as an American entrepreneur who wants to bring modern science to Victorian society. He’s especially interested in the new technology of electricity, which promises to brighten the night — useful for someone who avoids the sun. But he has another reason for his travels: He hopes to take revenge on those who cursed him with immortality centuries earlier. Everything seems to be going according to plan… until he becomes infatuated with a woman who appears to be a reincarnation of his dead wife. Victoria Smurfit (“About a Boy”), Thomas Kretschmann (“King Kong”), Jessica De Gouw (“Arrow”), Oliver Jackson-Cohen (“Mr. Selfridge”), Nonso Anozie (“Game of Thrones”) and Katie McGrath (“Merlin”) also star.

Writer Daniel Knauf (“Carnival”), Tony Krantz, (“24,” “Sports Night”), Colin Callender and Gareth Neame (“Downton Abbey”) serve as executive producers. “Dracula” is a production of Flame Ventures, Sky Living, Playground Entertainment, Universal Television, NBCUniversal International Television Production and Carnival Film & Television.

Just a quick reminder that Dracula is a limited series, which possibly means one season’s worth of episodes (10-episodes) and there are possibly no plans to go any further with it.

As well, NBC is known to present a lot of their upcoming TV series in SD Comic Con, as part of their promotional campaing. The most likely thing is that Dracula won’t be the exception. If there’s a panel for NBC’s Dracula, The Mortal Minute will be covering that one too. So we will keep our eyes open for any furder information!
