KSITETV’s CRAIG BYRNE: What was it about The Mortal Instruments that appealed to you and made you think that it would be a great fit for television?

Of course the mythology and the world and the scope of it was fantastic, but a very simple thing appealed to me, which was that in the first book, the mom has done everything in the world to shelter her child from learning that she [Clary] is part of the Shadow world. She wanted to save her from the knowledge of who her father was, and all of that, and I felt that that was a really terrific thing to latch on to; in the human way… with all of these fantastic things that were happening in the world, I really hooked onto that. I have an 18 year old daughter, and I understand that compulsion to protect your kids as much as possible. Ultimately, you can’t do it, and that’s really what the metaphor was in the books, too.
