Book News | ‘Shadowhunters’ TV Show Casting Updates

Hi there! It’s been a while since I did a casting update for the ‘Shadowhunters’ TV Show, so today I decided to post an update on all the additions to the cast, which are more of recurring and minor characters than main characters.

So, we now have:

All joining the cast of:

Quite a lot of cast members! I think I’m mostly good with all the new castings, and while they’re important characters, I suppose my opinion on them can be easily swayed as they’re recurring characters and even if I don’t like them, I won’t be seeing much of them (for most of these castings anyway).

However, I am wary of Lisa Marcos’s casting as Captain Vargas and Mouna Traoré as Midori, not because of the actors themselves, more of their castings. Captain Vargas and Midori aren’t characters from the book, so I’m quite hesitant when it comes to them.

Also, Dorothea is being aged down, and is given the name Dot, and apparently she isn’t going to have the same role as in the books. Wonder what that will be like…


So there we have it! An update on the Shadowhunter TV show cast. What do you think of these castings? Like ’em? Dislike ’em? Let me know in the comments below!

  1. So I was flipping through this gallery and this is so sad (and shameful being a TMI/CC fan) but I don’t even remember who Okay, forget that. You just explained why I didn’t remember these characters. XD Now I’m pretty wary of this show… I guess we’ll see though!
    Oh and I saw your tags. Just wanted to let you know that the more tag categories you use, the less likely it is that your post will be selected for topic listings. That’s why 15+ tags is taboo-isn in the WP community. Just a friendly reminder, so you don’t have to do more work than you need to. 🙂

  2. My focus was mostly on the main cast and I like them so I won’t bother about other characters.The only thing left is the official airing date which is around the next year and that’s pretty hard to deal with.

    • Yeah exactly, the main cast is who we’re gonna be spending time with the most. I just hope these castings (specifically the castings of characters who aren’t in the book) don’t get in the way of the show’s plot. :/ And I know right, the show’s airdate is so far away! 2016 isn’t coming fast enough… 😦
