The Mortal Instruments TV show, Shadowhunters, has officially made their first casting announcement! We now know will be playing the most sarcastic and talented shadowhunter ever…Jace. The series announced via social media that Dominic Sherwood will be the series lead.
Sherwood’s resume includes roles in Vampire Academy as well as Taylor Swift’s music video, “Style.” Sherwood is not too bad on the eyes but he does have some big shoes to fill thanks to Jamie Campbell Bower‘s pretty perfect depiction of Jace back in the 2013 film, City of Bones. Below is a little synopsis for the show.
hadowhunters 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. Now living among faeries, warlocks, vampires and werewolves, Clary begins a journey of self-discovery as she learns more about her past and what her future may hold.
With production beginning in May, I am sure we will be getting more casting news in the up and coming days.
I am still having a hard time picturing anyone other then my beloved Robert Sheehan playing Simon…so you have some work ahead of you ABCFamily!
So TMI fandom what are your thoughts on this casting news?
