On Set with Shadowhunters: Katherine McNamara

We are now only mere hours away from the series premiere of Shadowhunters, so it’s time for our final on-set interview. In this exclusive, we sit down with Katherine McNamara to talk all things Clary Fray, and being a part of this magical new series.

Here’s a tease of what we chat about in the video below:

  • What she knew about the books before joining the TV series.
  • Who Clary is when we first meet her.
  • The physical training required to play the role.
  • How impressive the costumes and special effects are, especially applying runes.
  • The relationship between Clary and Isabelle.
  • Tension between Clary and Alec.
  • Which character she would love to play besides Clary.


And that concludes our exclusive on-set interviews with the cast! Hope you’ve enjoyed watching them as much as we did creating them.

Don’t forget, the Shadowhunters series premiere is tonight at 9/8c on Freeform (formerly ABC Family)! For those of you outside of the US (including Canada), you can watch Shadowhunters on Netflix starting tomorrow.
