On Set with Shadowhunters: Isaiah Mustafa

Isaiah Mustafa

It’s time for another exclusive Shadowhunters interview! In this one, we chat with Isaiah Mustafa about playing Luke Garroway on the TV series.

Here’s a sample of what Isaiah Mustafa shared with us during our visit to their Toronto set:

  • There are some changes to the character of Luke Garroway. He is an NYPD detective on the series. In the books, he was a bookshop owner.
  • He tells us a bit about Luke’s relationship with Clary.
  • He also touches on how Luke relates to the other characters on the show.
  • Isaiah describes how things have changed for him after signing on to the series, especially on social media.
  • Which character does he wish he had more screen time with?


Shadowhunters arrives on Tuesday, January 12 at 9/8c on Freeform (currently ABC Family). International fans (including Canada) can watch the series premiere on January 13 on Netflix. New episodes will premiere every Wednesday on the streaming service.

Check back soon for even more from our visit to the set, including more interviews and a photo gallery! And if you haven’t already, watch our interviews with Emeraude Toubia (Isabelle Lightwood) and Harry Shum Jr. (Magnus Bane).
