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:
David Castro as Raphael
Jade Hassouné as Meliorn
Kaitlyn Leeb as Camille
Lisa Marcos as Captain Vargas
Curtis Morgan as Pangborn
Jordan Hudyma as Blackwell
Joel Labelle as Alaric
Vanessa Matsui as Dot
Sofia Wells as Young Clary
Mouna Traoré as Midori
All joining the cast of:
Dominic Sherwood as Jace
Alberto Rosende as Simon
Emeraude Toubia as Isabelle
Katherine McNamara as Clary
Matthew Daddario as Alec
Isaiah Mustafa as Luke
Harry Shum Jr. as Magnus
Alan Van Sprang as Valentine
Maxim Roy as Jocelyn
Jon Cor as Hodge Starkweather
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!
Hello everyone! I will soon be posting a review (as I haven’t been doing many of those lately) but before that I have to post this update on the ‘Shadowhunters’ TV Show! If you haven’t guessed from the title of this post, the update is on the casting for Alec and Luke from Cassandra Clare’s bestselling Mortal Instruments series!Read More »
Hi there! I’m super excited to present this little casting update on The Mortal Instruments (series by Cassandra Clare) TV show, ‘Shadowhunters’ (check out my post on it here): they’ve casted Isabelle and Simon!
As most of you know, Dominic Sherwood has been cast as Jace, and now we have Alberto Rosende and Emeraude Toubia joining the cast!
I have to admit, Alberto Rosende is far from what I had in mind for Simon. I really liked Robert Sheehan as Simon in the City of Bones movie, and I’m kind of disappointed he’s not coming back for the show, although in the back of my mind I expected it. I’m definitely going to keep an open mind, and hopefully I’ll come to see him more of a Simon.
As for Emeraude Toubia as Isabelle, I can kind of see it, however again I feel like Jemima West (from the movie) did a pretty good job for Isabelle. I’m not against Emeraude as Isabelle, I just have not completely come to terms with it yet. I haven’t seen any of the previous movies she’s been in, so I can’t say what I think of her acting skills, so I’m looking forward to seeing how she is.
Overall, I can’t completely see in my mind these two actors as Simon and Isabelle, but hopefully that will change as I watch the show.
What are your thoughts on this little casting news? Agree with it? Disagree? Indifferent? Let me know in the comments below! I’d love to know your opinions.
I wasn’t planning on posting today, but this recent news I found out about compels me to. If you haven’t guessed from the title of this post, the recent news in question is about The Mortal Instruments TV show!
Yep, you heard me!
Cassandra Clare’s worldwide best-selling YA series The Mortal Instruments has been picked up by ABC Family to be turned into a TV show.
Since the City of Bones movie was a disappointment in comparison with the book, I am super excited to see how the producers will be filming the show (which is being named ‘Shadowhunters’). I mean, the movie was okay, but it didn’t do the book justice at all.
There has not been much casting information yet except for the male lead of Jace Wayland: it will be played by Dominic Sherwood, previously seen in the film production of Vampire Academy: Blood Sisters based on the book by Richelle Mead. Previous Mortal Instruments stars Lily Collins and Jamie Campbell-Bower do not seem to be returning for the TV show, presumedly because ‘Shadowhunters’ is to have a clean slate and distance itself a bit from the box-office flop movie released in 2013.
For more information about production, etc. press HERE.
I for one, am looking forward to seeing how the show will hit off! I really hope this time the producers will stick more to the books! I’m fine with a bit of tweaking here and there, but to change it up a lot results in a flop, and I do hope they realize that.
So, are you excited for this show, or do you think it’s not worth your time? What do you think about Dominic Sherwood playing Jace? Comment below! I’d love to hear from you. ❤
