The Mortal Instruments cast talks about the stigma of female fandoms and what the film means to fans.
During a recent interview with VH-1, Jamie Campbell Bower, Lily Collins and Kevin Zegers were asked about being in a film with a female fandom and the snark directed at the fans.
Jamie Campbell Bower’s immediate response was, “[email protected]$k You. Seriously anyone who behaves like that is an idiot.” Kevin took a more diplomatic approach, describing the enthusiasm of the fans on the mall tour and how sad it is for people to crap on that.
While it is great to hear these actors speak out against the female fandom hate, it doesn’t seem to be going anywhere. While at Comic-Con this year, several people in line commented on how ‘Twilight ruined Comic-Con,’ which was incredibly confusing considering the film franchise wasn’t at Comic-Con.
Interestingly, no one complained that Game of Thrones or Marvel ruined Comic-Con, even though they also generated extreme lines.
The Mortal Instruments may appear to be a female fandom but out of all the young adult adaptations, it is certainly one of the most appealing to both genders.
The Mortal Instruments hits theaters August 21.
