Here is the video he did for the fans:



Other casting news - Besides Blackthorn being cast (I've posted about it here), according the Shadowhunters IMDB page, the roles of Pangborn (one of Valentine's minions) and Alaric (right hand man to Luke) have been filled by Curtis Morgan (@SexyblckSugaBts) and Joel Labelle respectively.

The role of Camille Belcourt goes to Kaitlyn Leeb

It was announced at 2:30am this morning (aussie time) that Kaitlyn Leeb (@kaitdubz) was cast as the Vampire clan leader, Magnus Bane's Ex and master manipulator, Camille Belcourt.

Now, the first thing I thought was, Kaitlyn (DROP DEAD GORGEOUS) isn't blonde and Camille known for her long blonde locks in the books. I guess hair can be dyed or a wig put on (like Emilia Clarke who plays Daenerys Targaryen in Game of Thrones). In the end, it is just aesthetics and as long as Kaitlyn brings 'WHO' Camille is to life, then that's all I care about.

Welcome to the TMI Family Kaitlyn!

Has Jordan Hudyma been cast as Blackwell in Shadowhunters?

Can we add another yummalicious actor to the growing eye candy ensemble that is the Shadowhunters cast?

The Newton Landry Management Inc talent agency tweeted that Jordan Hudyma will be playing the recurring role of Blackwell in the TV show=>

It is also showing on the Shadowhunters TV page on IMDB but data on the IMDB has been known to be wrong.

We're yet to hear of this casting news through the official social media accounts or via the crew working on the show.

David Castro joins the cast of "Shadowhunters' as Raphael Santiago

News broke overnight (Aussie time) that Shadohunters cast David Castro (@DavidLCastro_) as Raphael Santiago.

When I saw David's face, I immediately thought he was perfect! Spot on as far as the image I had in my head of Raphael.

Raphael as a character is an interesting and complex one. I always was wondering "Is he really a villian?"and as the books progressed, I've concluded that the answer is... not really. Everything he did/said was for a valid reason (if you were in his shoes) and he is a man of his word (defying Jonathan by not killing Magnus as he owed him a life debt - read Saving Raphael Santiago (The Bane Chronicles, #6) to find out what happened).

I look forward to seeing David potray Raphael as a character I warmed up to (he also made me laugh - up there with Magnus for razor wit!).

Also, we add ANOTHER hottie to the shadowhunters cast list :)

Watch the FIRST & SECOND Teasers for "Shadowhunters"

Two new teasers aired today during Pretty Little Liers and the Stitchers series premiere on ABCFamily.

The first teaser was only the Shadowhunters TV series logo animated with the details of when it will air etc...

I have to admit, I was thirsty for more after the first teaser (it was just a logo!). I was hoping for actual footage of the show, but alas, the second teaser which was a little longer, was just Kat (as cute as a button) introducing the series with a slideshow of candid behind the scenes pics of the cast (a mix of ones we have already seen and ones we haven't).


I guess it wasn't fair to expect too much as they only started filming the series last week. It's a promising start though (promoting the series now) and look forward to more teasers, more cast interaction on social media and of course, more behind the scenes shots :)
