So about three years ago, a big-screen adaptation of The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones was made. It was pretty much a dud for avid fans of the book. I rented it and enjoyed it as a film adaptation (haven’t read the books) and thought the cast was good however it wasn’t a YA story I thought was exceptional. In the wake of that, ABC Family announced it was developing a TV series based on the books (by author Cassandra Clare) called, Shadowhunters. casting scoop: shadowhunters
In the past two weeks, a bunch of casting news has been announced and quite randomly, I thought I’d share that news.

Jace, played by Dominic Sherwood
Dominic’s most popular role was probably in Vampire Academy.
Fun fact: Dominic played Taylor Swift’s leading man in her recent music video for ‘Style.’
Clary, played by Katherine McNamara
Katherine has guested on Fox’s Touch and CBS’ Unforgettable, and will be seen in The Scorch Trials later this year.
Simon, played by Alberto Rosende
Simon was the one character I really liked in the film, so it’ll be interesting to see how his character works in the show.
That’s it for this random post. Do you have an opinion on this cast, show or the books? Comment down below if you’re curious about this one or if you liked the film.
