As I’ve been excessively tweeting about today, Jordan (@divergentshadow) and I (@runnersmaze) visited the London Comic-Con today, and my was it a wonderful trip. Luckily, we managed to get a few minutes in with Teen Wolf’s Daniel Sharman, who also done the audio-book for Cassandra Clare’s ‘Clockwork Princess’. We asked how he went about getting to do the job, what the entire process was, and what he thought of the entire journey. Here’s what he had to say!
“I have always loved audio-books, always always loved them from a very young age! I was in talks with them to do ‘The Mortal Instruments’ audio-books and it didn’t work out, and I didn’t hear from them again. Then they asked me to do the audio-book (for Clockwork Princess) and I said I would love to, it sounds great and I’d never done it before. It was the most amazing amount of fun, you get locked in the studio and just invent your own world, and just read through it and invent all these different characters. I don’t know if any of them quite worked but it was just the most amount of fun to do. I was in the studio for about forty hours over about a week and a half, because I was shooting ‘Teen Wolf’ at the same time, so I was working nights and then working in the mornings and had no sleep whatsoever. But it was all worth it, it was the most amount of fun because I got to just sit there and invent a whole world. I really enjoyed reading the book, and I knew of The Mortal Instruments, then I read The Infernal Devices and I thought they were great.”
We then asked him what he thought of the fans casting him as Will Herondale, and since the film has been optioned would he ever consider playing him, giving a pretty surprising reply!
“Yeah, there are actually a few roles I would love to play in that, it would be interesting. I would love to play Will, but there were so many in there that I would love to play. I’ve always been one to do the baddies, because I love baddies! But, you know it would be great! I hope it goes well because it’s a great franchise.”
How about that? Daniel Sharman would love to play the villain, which I think is safe to assume that he’s referring to ‘Mortmain’!
