Godfrey Gao Bares It All For ‘Mortal Instruments’ Set Visit


Call us YA rookies, but “The Mortal Instruments” is fairly new to us and our knowledge of teen paranormal romance. We expected to see young, beautiful heroes brooding and battling supernatural evil, but the pantlessness comes as a bit of a surprise.

That’s what MTV News’ Josh Horowitz found on the set of “The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones” when he spoke with Godfrey Gao, the actor playing Magnus Bane. As it turns out, Gao was more surprised by the cold than the lack of pants.

“At first, I was like, ’All right, I thought this party was going to be an indoor mansion with a lot of lights and chandeliers like you see in back.’ Turns out, it’s outside, and it’s actually, I think, 11 degrees Celsius [51 degrees Fahrenheit], so I’m just hanging out with my boxers on and everyone sees … I have great legs.”

“The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones” opens on August 23.
