We Really Want to Have Dinner with the ‘Shadowhunters’ Cast

What we wouldn’t do to have dinner with the cast of Shadowhunters. Or at the very least be a fly on that wall.

The cast of Shadowhunters enjoyed a nice evening out with their cast mates and let the fandom in on the fun. Check out these photos of our gorgeous and talented cast. (Just pretend you’re sitting in between Emeraude and Katherine.)

Note: This is our first photo of our Magnus and Alec. Deep breaths, guys, deep breaths.

Get ready, Shadowhunters. Because it’s happening!

While filming with the cast is scheduled to start on Monday, filming of some sort began on Thursday. There have been photos from an outdoor Toronto set posted by crew members.

We’re not sure what they’re filming, but it doesn’t seem to involve our young cast, who all had dinner with Harry Shum Jr. who has arrived in Toronto. (Like how ridiculously gorgeous and talented is our cast?!)

Here are some photo from filming on Thursday:

No actors have been spotted on set, but there were a couple of stand-ins on set, who are probably filling in for the actors before filming begins.

As for what scene they could be filming, it sounds like it’s one that might involve Jocelyn.

Also, show runner Ed Decter (who recently joined Twitter) shared a photo from the crew getting set for a scene involving a pond of some sort.

Be still our fangirling hearts. It’s Clary and Jace in the flesh.

While filming on Shadowhunters doesn’t begin until Monday, we’re getting a ton of behind-the-scenes looks at the new series. But the latest shot from executive producer McG has our fangirl meter bursting through the roof.

Here’s our first look at Katherine McNamara as Clary and Dominic Sherwood as Jace in Shadowhunters.

While it’s not an official still — clearly a photo taken of a photo — it could be from a photoshoot or dress rehearsal.

Just a few days before the start of filming on Shadowhunters, ABC Family stopped by the set where they’ll be sharing behind-the-scenes photos, including the ones below.

Could this be the Clave insignia of Clave, Council, Covenant and Consul?

Here, have an adorable selfie with our Clary and Simon:

Shadowhunters has found its Jocelyn Fray!

Maxim Roy has been cast as Clary’s mother in ABC Family’s Shadowhunters!

Roy will be a recurring guest star on the series.

In Shadowhunters, Jocelyn is described as a “very beautiful, warm, protective and bold” mother to our Clary.  

“On the surface, Jocelyn leads a normal life running an antiquities store.  We will learn, however, that she harbors many secrets about a past life; particularly her ties to an ancient group of supernatural beings known as Shadowhunters.  In order to defend Clary from danger, Jocelyn transforms from single mom back into one of the most lethal Shadowhunters that ever lived.”

Here’s the press release that went out:

‘Shadowhunters’ BTS Photo: Clary, Jace and Simon Post Training

While we’re still just over a week away from the start of filming on Shadowhunters, I think it’s safe to assume that given the amount of behind-the-scenes photos from the cast and McG before filming has begun that there are going to be plenty of behind-the-scenes photos once production actually does begin.

The latest comes from our Clary, Katherine McNamara, who shared a photo of her and co-stars Dominic Sherwood (Jace) and Alberto Rosende (Simon) following training for the show. Who wouldn’t love to be in that room with them?

The High Warlock of Brooklyn has arrived in all of glittery glory! And Shadowhunters has gone out with a bang with its castings of series regulars.

Glee alum Harry Shum Jr. has been cast as Magnus Bane in ABC Family’s adaptation of Cassandra Clare’s best-selling The Mortal Instruments, the network announced on Friday.

Our High Warlock of Brooklyn is described as someone “with eccentric style, he’s fierce, cunning and keeps his cards close to his chest. Though he looks like he’s in his 20s, he’s hundreds of years old – which makes him wiser and wary of others.”

Here’s the press release the network sent out:

Another actor has joined the Shadowhunters family. And his character is no Father of the Year.

Alan Van Sprang has been cast as Valentine in ABC Family’s adaptation of Cassandra Clare’s best-selling The Mortal Instruments, the network announced on Friday.

Shadowhunters’ Valentine is described as a “Brilliant, cunning, and dangerously handsome” Shadowhunter who is someone “wielding immense power. His stoic, charming, and confident presence allows him control over his many followers. To seek out what he wants, Valentine executes anyone in his way, never thinking twice about it.”

Van Sprang was fantastic as King Henry on Reign, so we know he’s got this whole crazy thing down.

With filming on Shadowhunters set to begin a week from this Monday, the cast and crew are already hard at work prepping for the start of principal photography.

This week, executive producer McG has been spoiling us with behind-the-scenes photos (please keep them coming), and he’s done it again, now that our Alec, Matthew Daddario, is in Toronto. Sounds like McG is going to have his hands full with Jace, Alec, Isabelle and Simon.

How is it possible for a cast (and producer) to be this gorgeous?!

With Shadowhunters set to begin filming in less than two weeks, the cast and crew are hard at work preparing for the show.

On Tuesday, McG McG was out in full force on Twitter today sharing behind-the-scenes artwork and photos, which included shots of Dominic Sherwood and Emeraude Toubia training and kicking butt for their roles as Jace and Isabelle.

Also, Katherine McNamara, who is a natural redhead, hit the salon to trade in her blonde locks for her natural red. That’s right, our Clary will soon have her signature red hair.

McG also shared a photo of our Simon, Alberto Rosende following today’s rehearsals.

Check out this really cool look at Clary’s artwork that will likely be included in the show.
