Jace Wayland is a fictional character from The Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare. The series includes novels as City of Bones, City of Ashes, City of Glass, City of Fallen Angels, City of Lost Souls and City of Heavenly Fire.

Jace Wayland is a shadow hunter who lives with his adopted family at the New York Institute.  Throughout the series, his legal name changes from Jace Wayland to Jonathan Morgenstern to Jace Herondale.

Previously, in City of Bones, Jace thought his father to be Michael Wayland but later he is told that he is the son of Valentine and Jocelyn Morgenstern. He is also told that Clary Fray, with whom he falls in love, is his sister. However, in the end it is revealed that he is actually the son of Stephen Herondale and Celine Herondale. And Clary, his love interest is not related to him.

Jace is described as incredibly handsome man. His hair is depicted to be dark gold and curly, and his long eyelashes are described a shade lighter than his hair. He has blazing golden eyes and his height is said to be around 5 feet and 11 inches. He has a well built, long and lean physique.

Jace is found struggling throughout the books in order to choose between his father and adoptive family. He faces many complications on realizing what is wrong and what is right.

Jace is portrayed as an arrogant, intelligent and sarcastic character with a messed up sense of humor. However, his personality changes after he meets Clary. Before he used to be very arrogant believing that he was the best Shadow-hunter and was extremely confident in his looks and charms. Jace used to only care about the Lightwoods before he met Clary. His passionate love for Clary made his siblings Isabelle and Alec shocked.  

One of the quotes from City of Bones reflecting the transformation in Jace includes,

Don’t.” Clary raised a warning hand. “I’m not really in the mood right now.”

That’s got to be the first time a girl’s ever said that to me,” Jace mused.

English actor Jamie Campbell Bower portrayed the role of Jace Wayland in the movie The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones. The actor had a serious love affair with actress Bonnie Wright in 2010 and he even confirmed his engagement with his girlfriend. However their relationship did not work out and they called off their engagement. Later, he started dating his co-star from The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, Lily Collins.

There are rumors of the actor getting married with Lily Collins in near future.  It could be assumed from Collin’s social media updates that she might be the future wife of actor Bower.

Bower, at the age of 27, has achieved a lot in a very short span. He is best known for his roles in movies and TV shows as The Twilight Saga, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows- Part 1, Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street and Starz series Camelot.

English actor Jamie Campbell Bower has an estimated net worth of $3 million.
