Jemima will be playing the sassy character Isabelle Lightwood in The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones movie.

Personal Life

Jemima was born on the 11 August 1987 to English parents. Her father is an accountant and her mother is a business interpreter.

When she was five her parents relocated to Paris, France. She graduated school, studying History of Art while taking acting classes in the evening.

She can speak both French and English.


Jemima started her acting career very young, starting off as an extra in a few films, TV shows and shorts.

She starred in the French/Canadian TV show, ’15/Love’ where she played Cassidy Payne for 14 episodes in 2006.

Jemima then went on to star in quite a few more TV shows, such as 2008’s French show ‘Ben et Thomas’ and she played Liselott Karlsson for 11 episodes.

She also has been in a few films like ‘Play It Like Godard’ in 2011 and ‘Lines of Wellington’ in 2012.

Her main role that brought some much needed attention to this wonderful actress was her role as Rose in the TV series ‘Maison close’. She appeared in 16 episodes between 2010 – 2013, and it is set in Paris and is about a brothel.

The Mortal Instruments will be the first big Hollywood and English film that she has starred in, and we at The British Nephilim are sure she will play the character of Izzy perfectly.
