Meet the Cast of Shadowhunters


Shadowhunters fever kicked into high gear this weekend! With a panel and autograph session at New York Comic Con, the release of two first look clips, and the announcement of a premiere date — Tuesday, January 12 at 9pm ET/PT — fans of The Mortal Instruments book series are excited. Well, The Televixen is adding to that excitement with some exclusive video.

Over the summer, we spent a day on the Toronto set of Shadowhunters, interviewed the cast, and got a tour of The Jade Wolf, The Institute, and some other spots you may recognize from the books. After chatting with the cast and seeing all of the intricate details that are going into this production, we can’t wait for this show to hit the small screen.

We’ll be releasing video interviews with the cast a little closer to January’s premiere on Freeform (ABC Family’s brand new name which takes effect in the new year), but we thought we’d give you a little taste of what’s in store.

The video below features highlights from our exclusive interviews with cast members Katherine McNamara (Clary Fray), Dominic Sherwood (Jace Wayland), Alberto Rosende (Simon Lewis), Emeraude Toubia (Isabelle Lightwood), Matthew Daddario (Alec Lightwood), Harry Shum Jr. (Magnus Bane), and Isaiah Mustafa (Luke Garroway). Check it out, and stay tuned to The Televixen for the full videos later this year.
