In Mortal Instruments, which will hit theaters on August 23, Godfrey takes on the flamboyant role of Magnus Bane, a sparkly eye-liner and flashy nail polish-wearing High Warlock of Brooklyn.

The story follows Clary Fray, played by Lily Collins (The Blind Side), a seemingly average teen who uncovers her secret roots in a society of half-angel, half-human warriors known as Shadowhunters, who are tasked with ridding the world of demonic forces.

Along with her newfound Nephilim allies, Clary gets assistance from the magical Bane, who knows a lot more about her past than he leads on.

Read what Godfrey told MTV News about his character:

“I love Magnus Bane’s character because [he] can live forever and never age a day, and who doesn’t want to live forever? I also love that Magnus is a flamboyant party animal, and it’s fun to be described that way compared to the other characters I’ve portrayed previously. Magnus is so out there, he’s definitely a character I will never forget!

Magnus’ extravagant style of dress and makeup was quite the hot topic when I arrived to shoot in Toronto. All the glitter, nail polish, eye-liner and the outfits combined made Magnus the character that everyone loves and envisioned in their minds.”

“At first, I was like, ‘All right, I thought this party was going to be an indoor mansion with a lot of lights and chandeliers like you see in back.’ Turns out, it’s outside, and it’s actually, I think, 11 degrees Celsius [51 degrees Fahrenheit], so I’m just hanging out with my boxers on and everyone sees … I have great legs.”
