By the Angel..... I don't know why it didn't hit me before, but IF there is ever a movie made about the Infernal Devices series (by Cassandra Clare)--and let's face it, there probably WILL be--- they should definitely cast the lovely Nina Dobrev as
I don't know if it's how she looks in old-fashioned get-up or her wonderful portrayal of Elena Gilber (Vampire Diaries) who's just as kind and caring as Tessa, but I just think she would be the absolute perfect casting choice!
Anyways, totally random, I know, but just thought I'd share my thoughts.
(and is it just me or does Nina look a lot like Lily Collins--who happens to be playing Clary in the Mortal Instruments movie? Oh.... THAT'S probably where I got the idea for Nina as Tessa....)
