"Shadowhunters" casts Hodge Starkweather, Madame 'Dot' Dorothea, Midori & Little Clary

Let's start with Hodge Starkweather...

Hodge has been cast in "Shadowhunters" and the role goes to Jon Cor (@Jon_Cor). Now, Jared Harris (@JHarris_UK) did a sublime job of playing Hodge in the City of Bones movie so the bar has been set pretty high (No pressure Jon :).

Hodge's character in the TV series is younger (and HOTTER... sorry Jared) which fits in better with the books as he ran with Valentine, Jocelyn, Luke etc... in the circle so he had to be around their age (mid 30's ish).

Feast your eyes on this gorgeous male speciman...

Madame Dorothea will be played by Vanessa Matsui (@VanessaMatsui). From what I've seen and read so far, Dorothea in '"Shadowhunters' will be known as "Dot" and not the witch as we know it from the books. Not sure 'how' different she will be but from what I can see, she is younger than book Dorothea. Check her out...

 Other casting news is that Sofia Wells has been cast as young Clary...

and Mouna Traoré has been casted in a newly created role for the TV series as 'Midori' who is one of Valentine Morgensterns lackeys (like Pangborn and Blackwell).

Jocelyn Fray's role in Shadowhunters has been filled!

News broke 6am this morning (Aussie time) that the role of Jocelyn Fray (Clary's mum) has been filled by Maxim Roy (@Mllemaximroy). Just based on her apperance at this point, she is what I imagined Clary's mum to look like. In fact, is it just me that can see a little resemblance to Lena Headey? (Clary's movie mum in City of Bones). What do you think?

Here is her video for the fans:

The cast is coming together and I'm very happy with who has been chosen thus far!

Here is Alan's video for the fans... with a little musical number about ValenTEEN *giggles*

Then later this morning (9am) it was revealed that Harry Shum (@HarryShumJr) scored the role of our beloved High Warlock of Brooklyn, Magnus Bane! (One of my absolute fav characters in the Shadowhunter World). I'm thrilled with Harry as the 'chosen one' to play Magnus. Can't wait to see him bring Magnus to life on TV in all his glittery and snarky glory :)

Katherine McNamara cast as Clary Fray in ‘Shadowhunters’

In regards to finding who filled Clary's role, it began with a false start with @McGsWonderland (McG) & @ShadowhuntersTV saying that they will reveal who plays Clary earlier this week... and then didn't. McG even posted some photo clues and then deleting those tweets.

However, today was the day they officially announced that
Katherine McNamara was the girl to fill the very big shoes Lily Collins left behind as Clary in the movie adaption of The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones.

So without further ado... here she is:

Just based on looks, she definitely fits the Clary brief and Kat knows Clary is a 'firecracker' which is spot on description of our beloved character in the books:
She's even done a little video for us (she sounds so sweet & genuinely excited):

This tweet here gave me goosepimples! Why? coz it makes it so REAL! That it is really happening. Here is a pic of Alberto Rosende (Simon Lewis) and Kat from their screen test that @ShadowhuntersTV tweeted:

So now we have Jace, Clary, Isabelle and Simon casting confirmed. So that now leaves Jocelyn, Luke, Valentine, Hodge, Alec and of course the ever sparkly, Magnus Bane!

Isabelle Lightwood & Simon Lewis have been cast in "Shadowhunters"

@ShadowhuntersTV (the official TV show account) tweeted clues on other actors that have been cast in the TV series (So far, the only casting news that was confirmed was that Dominic Sherwood had been cast as Jace Wayland).

Here are the clues:

Tweets exploded from the fandom all speculating on exactly which character they think would be revealed (my feed was like a running waterfall of text!) but it was pretty clear from the clues that it was Isabelle (Whip was a give away) and Simon (Band - pretty easy!).

So who was cast??

...*drum roll*...

                   Emeraude Toubia                                       Alberto Rosende
             as Isabelle 'Izzy' Lightwood                    as Simon Lewis (Perfect!)

You can follow them both on twitter: @EmeraudeToubia and @arosende

Shortly after the reveal, both actors did a quick video to officially introduce themselves and to thank fans for their support:

Aww.. how nervous did he sound? Adorbes! Perfectly cast as Simon :)
