My Favourite Story
In New York City, teenager Clary Fray (Lily Collins) begins seeing a strange symbol, worrying her mother Jocelyn
Fray (Lena Headey) and her mother's friend Luke Garroway (Aidan Turner). Later, while attending a nightclub with
her best and only friend Simon Lewis (Robert Sheehan), Clary witnesses the murder of a man by the hands of Jace
Wayland (Jamie Campbell Bower), whom appears only Clary is able to see. Meanwhile, Jocelyn is abducted by two
men, Emil Pangborn (Kevin Durand) and Samuel Blackwell (Robert Maillet), and they leave a message for Clary
warning her that someone named Valentine is coming after her, then drinks a potion that leaves her in a comatose
state. Returning home, Clary is attacked by a demon and rescued by Jace, who reveals himself to be a
Shadowhunter, a warrior trained to slay demons hidden on Earth, such as the man in the nightclub. Jocelyn was a
Shadowhunter as well, and Clary has inherited her powers, including the ability to use runes.
Clary and Jace visit Clary's neighbor and friend of her mother, Madame Dorothea (C. C. H. Pounder), a witch who
deduces that Pangborn and Blackwell are after the Mortal Cup, one of the three Mortal Instruments given to the
first Shadowhunter by the Angel Raziel, that allows normal humans to become half-Angel Shadowhunters. Simon,
now able to see Jace, joins them as they leave to meet Luke in his bookstore. There, they discover that Luke is
being interrogated by Pangborn and Blackwell, stating that he cares nothing for Jocelyn, and is after the Mortal
Cup himself. The trio then escapes to the Shadowhunters' base of operations, the Institute, where Clary and Simon
meet Jace's fellow Shadowhunters, Alec Lightwood (Kevin Zegers) and Isabelle Lightwood (Jemima West), and
their leader, Hodge Starkweather (Jared Harris), who reveals that Pangborn and Blackwell are working
for Valentine Morgenstern(Jonathan Rhys Meyers), an ex-Shadowhunter who betrayed the race of the Nephilim
and sought to steal the Mortal Cup to gain control over all Shadowhunters and demons.
Believing the key to find the Mortal Cup lies within Clary's mind, Hodge instructs Jace to take Clary to the City of
Bones, where fallen Shadowhunters are laid to rest, to meet Brother Jeremiah (Stephen R. Hart), a member of the
Silent Brothers who probe Clary's mind and uncover her connection to a powerful warlock, Magnus Bane (Godfrey
Gao). Clary, Jace, Simon, Alec and Isabelle meet Magnus in a nightclub, where he reveals that Jocelyn has hired
him to block knowledge of the Shadowhunters from Clary's mind. Their conversation is interrupted when Simon is
kidnapped by vampires, leading to a confrontation in a nearby hotel. Their group is nearly killed until the
werewolves (that share a truce with the Shadowhunters) intervene and rescue them.
• Back in the Institute, Clary shares a moment of romance with Jace during a romantic evening with
him in the Institute's greenhouse, sharing a kiss. Simon confronts Clary about it and Jace gets
angry and confused when she refers to it as just a kiss. Simon pours out his heart to Clary and
Simon leaves the room leaving Clary feeling guilty.
• Clary discovers that the Mortal Cup is hidden inside a tarot card painted by her mother, so the
group returns to Madame Dorothea's apartment to retrieve it. There, they discover the witch has
been replaced by a demon sent to steal the Cup. It is killed by Simon and Jace, not before critically
wounding Alec, while Clary retrieves the Mortal Cup.
• The group returns to the Institute only to find that they have been betrayed by Hodge, who takes
the Mortal Cup from Clary and summons Valentine Morgenstern. He reveals himself to be Clary's
father and persuades her to join him in his cause, but she refuses and escapes with help from
Luke, who is revealed to be a werewolf. Luke tells Clary that she has a brother called Jonathan,
and returns to the Institute with her and his pack to fight Valentine, who uses a forbidden spell to
open a portal and summon an army of demons to New York. Simon and Isabelle manage to close
the portal with help from Hodge, who sees the error of his ways and sacrifices himself to kill
Blackwell. Meanwhile, Magnus arrives to heal the injured Alec, and Luke kills Pangborn.
• Clary and Jace fight Valentine, who reveals that they are siblings, and that Jace's real name is
Jonathan. He once more attempts to convince them to join him, but they refuse again and push
him through the portal with a false Mortal Cup, and after a brief struggle the portal is destroyed
by Jace. Jocelyn is rescued but remains in a coma at the hospital, where Luke accompanies her.
Clary assures Simon that although she does not love him back, but somebody will. Clary heads
back home and uses her powers to repair the damage done to her apartment. Shortly thereafter,
Jace appears, confessing that he needs her and wants her to come back with him to the Institute.
Without much thought, she agrees to go with him.

My Favourite Actor
Diesel was born in New York City. His mother, Delora Sherleen (Sinclair) Vincent, is an astrologer. Diesel has stated
that he is "of ambiguous ethnicity". His mother's background includes Scottish, English, and German. He has
never met his biological father, and has stated that "all I know from my mother is that I have connections to many
different cultures".Diesel has self-identified as "definitely a person of colour". He was raised by his Caucasian
mother and African-American stepfather, Irving H. Vincent, an acting instructor and theater manager.He made his
stage debut at age seven when he appeared in the children's play Dinosaur Door, written by Barbara Garson. The
play was produced at Theater for the New City in New York's Greenwich Village. His involvement in the play came
about when he, his brother, and some friends had broken into Theater for the New City's space on Jane Street with
the intent to vandalize it. They were confronted by the theater's artistic director, Crystal Field, who, instead of
calling the police, handed them scripts and offered them parts in the upcoming show.
Diesel remained involved with the theater throughout adolescence, going on to attend the city's Hunter College,
where his creative writing studies led him to begin screenwriting. He has identified himself as a "multi-faceted"
actor as a result of early difficulties finding roles due to his mixed heritage. He changed his name to Vin Diesel
while working as a bouncer at the New York nightclub Tunnel, because one's real name is not usually given out in
that business. The name "Vin" is simply a shortened version of "Vincent". He received the nickname "Diesel" from
his friends, who said he ran off diesel fuel, referring to his non-stop energy.
