ABC Family’s ‘Shadowhunters’ Finds Simon & Isabelle for ‘Mortal Instruments’ Series

1 May 2015 11:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

ABC Family’s “Shadowhunters” saga series is filling out. Alberto Rosende and Emeraude Toubia have been cast as Simon and Isabelle, Variety has learned.

The two actors join Dominic Sherwood, who will play Jace, whose leading lady, Clary Fray, is yet to be cast.

Simon, intelligent and very handsome in a non-calculated kind of way, is Clary’s longtime best friend. An accounting student by day, Simon spends his free time performing in a band. His loyalty and feelings for Clary are tested as he fights alongside her on an epic journey.

Isabelle is an exotic-looking, beautiful Shadowhunter. An expert with her whip, and a trained fighter who can kill it in high heels, she’s just as lethal as she is attractive. Her one weakness, however, is her choice in men, as she always goes for the bad boy.

Based on the bestselling “Mortal Instruments” books by Cassandra Clare, »

Dominic Sherwood Cast as Jace in ABC Family's 'Shadowhunters'

20 April 2015 8:15 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

ABC Family has found its male lead for its upcoming series based on the "Mortal Instruments" books.

Variety reports that Dominic Sherwood ("Vampire Academy," Taylor Swift's "Style" video) has joined the "Shadowhunters" cast as Jace, a member of the the titular group of human-angel hybrids who hunt down demons. He helps 18-year-old Clary Fray search for her mother who's gone missing, and helps Clary come to terms with her new identity as a Shadowhunter.

"Shadowhunters" seems to be a hard reboot of the "Mortal Instruments: City of Bones" movie, which starred Lily Collins and Jamie Campbell Bower as Clary and Jace, respectively. That 2013 flick didn't score so well at the box office, prompting production company Constantin Film to reimagine Cassandra Clare's book series for a television format; it looks like "Shadowhunters" will act as if that flick never happened, and tell the "Mortal Instruments" story from the beginning. »

ABC Family Sets McG To Direct Shadowhunters Pilot

14 April 2015 4:53 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Young Adult literary adaptations have dominated the movie box office for some time now – with titles such as Twilight, The Hunger Games and The Maze Runner all generating their own cinematic franchises. It was inevitable that television would find a way to jump on that gravy train, and ABC Family has ordered their version – Shadowhunters – straight to series, with McG at the helm of the pilot episode.

Shadowhunters is a television spinoff from the 2013 film The Mortal Instruments: City Of Bones, which was adapted from the book of the same name by Cassandra Clare. That book is the first of a series of six Young Adult fantasy novels, which itself fits into a larger series of writing, titled The Shadowhunter Chronicles. The series is built around the character of Clarissa “Clary” Fray – a teenager who makes surprising discoveries about her identity and her parentage. Through a sequence of shocking events and revelations, »
