ABC family has cast its lead for the new ‘Shadowhunters‘ television series, which is based on the bestselling young adult ‘The Mortal Instruments’ novels by Cassandra Clare.
The Wrap has confirmed that Dominic Sherwood, who last starred in the ‘Vampire Academy’ movie as Christian Ozera, will play Jace Wayland.
You’ll also recognize Dominic if you’re a Taylor Swift fan because he starred in her music video for ‘Style.’
Shadowhunters” follows 18-year-old Clary Fray who finds out on her birthday that she is not who she thinks she is, but rather comes from a long line of Shadowhunters — human-angel hybrids who hunt down demons. When her mother Jocelyn is kidnapped, Clary is thrown into the world of demon hunting with mysterious Shadowhunter Jace and her best friend Simon.
‘Shadowhunters‘ is being produced by Constantin Film and executive produced by Ed Decter and McG, who will also direct the first episode.
Our thoughts: Truthfully? We think this is perfect casting on their part. Dominic Sherwood definitely looks Jace-like, and we already know that he can act. We think he’ll make Jamie Campbell Bower proud! Excited for more casting news. This show is going to kick some serious arse!
