English actor Jamie Campbell Bower had his career beginnings in the mid-2000s. His debut was as Anthony Hope in the movie Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street. He next appeared in the films RocknRolla and Winter in Wartime. He then became known for his role as Caius Volturi in The Twilight Saga: New Moon. He reprised his role in the sequels The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1 and The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2.
He went on to play King Arthur in the television series Camelot. He later starred as Jace Wayland in the movie The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones. In 2016, he started voicing the role of Skiff in Thomas & Friends. His latest acting role was as Christopher Marlowe in the show Will.
The actor trained hard for his role in Mortal Instruments: City of Bones. He knew he needed to prepare his body in order to play his character more effectively. In an interview, he shared: “Physically, I’ve trained really hard for it. I started training four months — three months before we started shooting, and I sort of toyed around with different physical forms and at the end of it.” He went on to say:
“Ultimately, at the end of that, what I wanted to do is I built up the muscle, and then I just trimmed everything down and just got super lean and it was really tough; really, really hardcore. I did a lot of stunt training; a lot of fight training and physically kind of ruined myself, but in the best way possible. ”
The workouts he performed were hard work but he didn’t mind because he knew it was for the best, health and fitness wise. He said: “It wasn’t like I was doing stupid s*** because I was doing stuff that was good for me, but, you know, you wake up at 5 o’clock every morning, and do three hours of training, then you have a half an hour to eat, and then you go back and do another two hours, then half an hour to go and sleep, and maybe have a shower if you’re lucky, and then go through lines or learn the piano and all this kind of stuff. Yes, it’s exhausting, but it’s part of what I enjoy about it.”
