The Mortal Instruments
Kevin was one of the first actors approached to play Alec but his schedule didn't work with the original filming schedule and someone else was chosen. When the filming schedule changed once again, it didn't work for the alternate actor cast for Alec but then worked out for Kevin.
Cassie liked his audition, particularly in the scene where Alec confronted Clary; while many actors yelled and portrayed Alec as simply mean, she thought Kevin "played it with a quiet sort of intensity that grew through the scene so you could see through the cracks of the anger and think: wow, this guy is really scared and vulnerable. Because that is the Alec people love." Rumors spread about his casting, but it was only confirmed on August 1, 2012 by Cassandra Clare through her Tumblr account, after the papers were signed and finalized.
- Kevin was originally Cassie's fancast for Sebastian.
- Like his character, Alec, Kevin has blue eyes.
