Shadowhunters TV Show | Clary , Alec and Luke Casting

Katherine McNamara

We have our Clary!

Katherine McNamara has been cast as Clary Fray in ABC Family’s adaptation of Shadowhunters. 

I have no idea who she is, so let’s IMBD her.

She started of on Broadway. and she’s been on a couple Disney shows. She’s 19 and 5’4 which is perfect.

I’m pretty okay with this, I mean she does look like her, I know she’s blond right now, but I hope when they color her hair they give her the deeper red that Lily had because I think that fit Clary better.

Now we have  Alec and Magnus as the rest of the main characters left to be casted. There are obviously others like Max, The Lightwood Parents, Hodge, Church (lol). I don’t care much for Alec’s casting because I don’t care much for his character, but oh dear lord they better get Magnus right, I mean I rant about this and about how Godfrey is so perfect in every casting post I’ve made, but really, I’m waiting

What are your thoughts on our Clary?

Lol, Apparently I’m really behind on all this because Alec and Luke have also been casted.

Matthew Daddario has been cast as Alec Lightwood and Isaiah Mustafa has been cast as Luke Garroway

Matthew Daddario Picture

This is Matthew, aka Alec. I mean like I said, I don’t really care about this casting, but I do see it, kind of.

According to IMDB he’s been in a couple movies.


I don’t think I’ve seen any of them but yeah.

What are your thoughts on Alec? I know a lot of you love him. I really liked Kevin as him in the movie, but I’m open minded.

Now let’s talk about Luke.

Isaiah Mustafa Picture

This isn’t the Luke I think anyone imagined, but I dig it. I can’t wait to see Jocelyn now lol. This is great, I can totally see him as Luke the werewolf.

According to IMDB he’s been in Horrible Bosse, Nikita (which is the show Tori’s character in Divergent plays in) and a lot of others.

Apparently in the show Luke is a NYPD detective, which I mean, that’s cool. That’s a nice twist to his character. In the book he owned a book store, but being a detective in the show does make him more badass, and Isaiah has been in NCIS and NCIS: Los Angeles so he probably knows how to play the detective role well.

I’m loving this cast so far.

What about you guys? Who’s been your favorite casting so far? Least Favorite?

My favorite would probably be Izzy, or Jace.

Shadowhunters TV Show | Isabelle and Simon Casting

Alberto Rosende and Emeraude Toubia have been cast as Simon and Isabelle


Yup, looks like we have our Simon and Izzy. I love Isabelle’s actress, she looks exactly like the Iz I pictured. She’s remotely unknown, she’s played in a few spanish movies apparently, but nonetheless, I think she looks like a Lightwood. I think she’s spanish, which is great because it adds diversity to the show, I just hope she doesn’t have an  accent, or if she does  then I hope the  whole Lightwood family has one too just so it adds up, or maybe she just  spent some time in a spanish speaking country to have picked up the accent. I like that she’s unknown and I’m excited to see how she does.

Simon…..well I guess you all know how much I loved Robbie, I talked about it in the Jace Casting Post, so I’m a bit upset that he’s not Simon again. He doesn’t really scream Simon to me, I don’t know, maybe I’m biased. I like that he’s hispanic too, it makes him and Izzy even cuter lol. He was in Blue Bloods which is another Book To TV Adaptation, and this other movie called The Swing of Things, I’ll have to watch a couple episodes of Blue Bloods to see how I like his acting, and maybe then I’ll start to see more of Simon in him. I guess this means they’ll recast Magnus too ): That casting better be as perfect as Godfrey was.

What are your thoughts on all this?

PS: Sorry I haven’t been posting as much, it’s almost finals/ SAT Time so it’ll probably be that way for the next couple of weeks, sorry!

The Mortal Instruments TV Show | News, Rumors, Thoughts


So we all know by now that The Mortal Instruments is being turned into a TV Show after the movie wasn’t that successful.

I’ll just rundown through what we know so far:

  • We know it’s set to start production in May
  • Production starts in Vancouver
  • They’re doing casting right now, so look up auditions if you want to join! ( I kinda want to lol)
  • They apparently aged up the characters
  • Clary is an ART major
  • SImon is apparently an accounting student
  • It will air on ABC Family

Here’s what we’re going from:

tmishow4  tmishow3

tmishow2              tmishow

First I’d like to talk about the name “Shadowhunters”, I don’t like it, I feel like this is an unpopular opinion but I feel like it’s a bit cheesy, maybe it’ll grow on me, but I don’t understand why they wouldn’t just call it The Mortal Instruments. I get that maybe they didn’t want to link it to the movie, but still.

The characters being aged up I don’t mind much, they’re trying to attract a larger audience, so I’m fine with that, and it’s not like they’re being aged up that much.

Clary being an ART student is also fine by me, because I think that had she not been introduced to The Shadow World (which would’ve been another good name for the show) when she was 16, then that’s most likely the major she would’ve chosen. As for Simon the accountant, I don’t know, I don’t really mind that much either, I mean I can see it as something regular old COB Simon would do.

Simon apparently has this girlfriend named Natalie and she’s part of the band, that actually doesn’t bother me either, I just hope they keep the story line that he’s still in love with Clary, because that’s really important to the story and his character. I hope they include the other members of the band too, especially Eric because his van comes in handy a couple of times, and he has o be Simon’s best friend at the end of CoHF.

ABC Family. I love ABC Family, I mean they air my favorite show Pretty Little Liars as well as The Fosters, and a couple other successful shows, so I think that a good network for it, because it already has a targeted audience watching it. Even the Pretty Little Liars and The Fosters fans who have never read or heard of the books will probably watch the pilot, so that was a smart move because both those shows have a strong fanbase. A lot of people thought it’d air on The CW, because that channel has been putting out some good shows lately, I mean The Vampire Diaries, The 100, Reign, Arrow, The Flash… I actually thought it’d air on Starz just like Outlander does for a little while.

I’m sad that we don’t get to keep the same Simon and Magnus from the movie because they were perfect.

Anyways, I really hope this show isn’t disappointing. I think it’ll do fine, and even though they’re making some changes, so far I think it’s on a good path, except for the technology part.

‘The Mortal Instruments’ TV series update

I hope at the very least they keep Magnus and Simon. Also that they cast Raphie (: Changing the whole cast is a bit weird though, aren’t they starting where they ended, so with City of Ashes?

TMI Source


Thanks to our friend Nadine at TMI Germany we have Martin Moszkowicz’ interview with the German newspaper “Süddeutsche Zeitung” where he talks about The Mortal Instruments being turned into a TV series.

What we already knew from The Hollywood Reporter:

  • Ed Decter is the showrunner
  • the series is currently under development and will begin production next year
  • no broadcast partners are yet attached

What’s new:

  • Constantin Film aims to spend 2.5 to 5 million Euros per episode ($3,000,000 to 6,300,000), which would probably also apply to The Mortal Instruments
  • Ed Decter is the main author for the first (!) season
  • Martin thinks that Amazon could be interested in the TV series. The episodes and books could be on the same page so that you could buy them with one simple click

This morning (German time) Martin also tweeted:

The Mortal Instruments to Return as a TV Series


Yay? Or Nay?
I’m not sure. It has potential, it could be really good! I just hope they don’t drag it like they can sometimes do with other shows, and that most importantly, they stick to the books.
They said the reason why CoB was so bad was because they had to fit so much into little time, which is true so now that they have a wider time frame they should just incorporate everything without any major changes.
