The cast of Shadowhunters has increased by two, adding Matthew Daddario (Delivery Man) as Alec Lightwood and Isaiah Mustafa (Horrible Bosses) as Luke Garroway. They’ll be joining Katherine McNamara as Clary Fray, Dominic Sherwood as Jace Wayland, Alberto Rosende as Simon, and Emeraude Toubia as Isabelle Lightwood in the ABC Family series based on Cassandra Clare’s bestselling Mortal Instruments book series.
Shadowhunters is executive produced by McG (Terminator Salvation) and Ed Decter and McG, with McG also set to direct the first episode.
Isaiah Mustafa’s best known as the hunky Old Spice guy. His credits also include Chuck, Madea’s Big Happy Family, and Nikita. Matthew Daddario, brother of Alexandra Daddario, has been in 36 Saints and When the Game Stands Tall.
Shadowhunters 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.
Alec Lightwood joins Jace and his sister, Isabelle, in their pursuit of demonic creatures. He’s tortured by his romantic love for Jace, who is his adoptive brother and fighting partner. The eldest of the group, his strict moral code forces him to follow the law to the letter.
Luke Garroway is an NYPD detective investigating a string of “demonic” murders. Luke feels a fatherly instinct to protect Clary, a strong affection for Jocelyn and has secrets of his own. Once a strong and powerful Shadowhunter, he has since become the thing he once hated most – a werewolf pack leader.
