Dominic Sherwood will be joined in the Shadowhunters cast by Alberto Rosende and Emeraude Toubia as just announced by ABC Family. The new series is based on Cassandra Clare’s bestselling The Mortal Instruments book series and will be executive produced by Ed Decter and McG. McG (Terminator Salvation) is also on board to direct the series’ first episode.
Alberto Rosende will play Simon, Emeraude Toubia will play Isabelle Lightwood, and Dominic Sherwood was previously announced as Jace.
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.
Intelligent, very handsome in a non-calculated kind of way, Simon is Clary Fray’s long-time best friend. He’s the first to find humor in any situation. 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, model-beautiful Shadowhunter. An expert with her whip, she’s as lethal as she is attractive. A trained fighter who can kick-ass in high-heels, Isabelle’s one weakness is her choice in men – always going for the bad boy.
