Today I have just a quick announcement post for you guys. Last year saw the release of the movie adaption of the first book in Cassandra Clare's best-selling series, the Mortal Instruments. Fans had been waiting for months to see Clary, Jace, Alec, Magnus and everyone else come to life on screen. The movie though, ended up being quite the letdown, stalling the production of future installments in the series. But just when everyone had pretty much given up the hope of ever seeing Jace and Clary on the screen again, ABC announced that they would be adapting Cassandra Clare's book series for the small screen.
Now, a few months later, things seem to be finally moving. While production expected to start in June, the TV show not only finally has its official name - Shadowhunters - but it seems that castings have also already begun. While this should put the dream-casts polls to rest, it also gave way for a new wave of anticipation and excitement which only got wilder earlier today upon the first official casting announcement yet.
Fans of Shadowhunters everywhere, the wait is over! We now officially have our new Jace Wayland!
Dominic Sherwood, whom some of you might remember from Vampire Academy where he played the part of fire-wielding Moroi Christian, has been officially cast as Jace. With longer hair, some hair dye and a few runic tattoos, he might very well turn out to be the perfect Jace.
Nothing has yet been announced regarding the parts of other main characters and fan favorites such as Clary, Alec, Magnus or even Valentine, but from their latest casting I'm very hopeful the other castings will live up to fans' anticipations and stay true to the characters we love from the books.
