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.

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:

Also, let’s not forget this previously-released gem that gave us our first look at Katherine McNamara and Dominic Sherwood as Clary and Jace.

Last week Harry Shum Jr. and Alan Van Sprang were cast as Magnus Bane and Valentine Morgenstern respectively and today the Shadowhunters Facebook page shared videos where Harry and Alan thank the fans for their support.
Have a look at our Magnus (who sports fabulous hair):

And here is our Valentine who also serenaded the fans:

I cannot wait to see Maxim’s video and pictures of the whole cast once they are all together in Toronto!

Shadowhunters will start filming next Monday and it will air on ABC Family early next year.

With just one week until filming on Shadowhunters begins, you can literally feel the anticipation from cast, crew and fans alike.

Shadowhunters executive producer McG shared a behind-the-scenes photo of Katherine McNamara, Dominic Sherwood, Alberto Rosende, Emeraude Toubia, Matthew Daddario and Isaiah Mustafa during rehearsal in Toronto.

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?

Shadowhunters begins filming on May 25 and premieres in early 2016 on ABC Family.

Harry Shum Jr. Cast as Magnus Bane in ‘Shadowhunters’

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:

ABC FAMILY COMPLETES ITS SERIES REGULAR CAST WITH

HARRY SHUM JR. AS ‘MAGNUS BANE’ FOR THE SAGA SERIES “SHADOWHUNTERS”

Burbank, CA (May 8, 2015) – ABC Family rounds out their cast for “Shadowhunters” with a little magic in the casting of Harry Shum Jr. (“Glee”) as ‘Magnus Bane.’ It was announced today by the network.

Based on the bestselling young adult fantasy book series The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare, “Shadowhunters” follows 18-year-old Clary Fray, who finds out on her birthday that she is not who she thinks she is but rather comes from a long line of Shadowhunters – human-angel hybrids who hunt down demons. When her mother, Jocelyn, is kidnapped, Clary is thrown into the world of demon hunting with mysterious Shadowhunter Jace and her best friend, Simon. Now living among faeries, warlocks, vampires and werewolves, Clary begins a journey of self-discovery as she learns more about her past and what her future may hold.

Magnus Bane is the high warlock of Brooklyn. 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.

“Shadowhunters” is produced by Constantin Film and executive produced by Ed Decter and McG. McG will also direct the first episode. The network has previously announced series regulars Katherine McNamara as ‘Clary Fray,’ Dominic Sherwood as ‘Jace Wayland,’ Alberto Rosende as ‘Simon,’ Emeraude Toubia as ‘Isabelle Lightwood,’ Matthew Daddario as ‘Alec Lightwood’ and Isaiah Mustafa as ‘Luke Garroway.’ Alan Van Sprang was announced earlier today as a recurring guest star in the role of ‘Valentine.’

Earlier today, Alan Van Sprang joined the show as Valentine Morgenstern.

Alan Van Sprang Cast as Valentine in ‘Shadowhunters’

Alan-Van-Sprang

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.
Here’s the press released that went out:

ABC FAMILY HAS FOUND ITS VILLAIN ‘VALENTINE’ WITH

ALAN VAN SPRANG FOR THE SAGA SERIESSHADOWHUNTERS

I don’t know about you, but I could get used to getting spoiled with behind-the-scenes photos from the Shadowhunters cast and crew. Just wait until filming begins in less than two weeks!

‘Shadowhunters’ Photo: McG Has His Hands Full with Jace, Alec, Isabelle and Simon

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?!

Cassandra Clare talks new ‘The Mortal Instruments’ covers

Yesterday the social media pages of Shadowhunters TV revealed the repackaged covers of Cassandra Clare’s The Mortal Instruments and today Cassie has taken to tumblr to talk about the new covers. Since we’ve already shared the book covers, we’ve only included the spine art which looks incredible!

I love these [covers] — I have great fondness for the old covers, but it was time for a change, and these feel fresh and new to me, cleanly designed, and with each character seeming frozen in a moment of story.

City of Bones: Jace

City of Ashes: Clary

City of Glass: Simon

City of Fallen Angels: Isabelle

City of Lost Souls: Alec

City of Heavenly Fire: Sebastian/Jonathan

At the bottom you can see the spine art — it stretches across the spines of all the books; each has a piece, and when they are placed together, you can see the whole picture.

Any Shadowhunters going to BookCon NYC this year? If so, stop by the S&S booth #2620 @11:00 each day to get your limited-edition poster featuring the new spine art from the TMI repackages coming September 1st!

Cliff Nielsen and Russell Gordon did great jobs, kudos to them!

Stay tuned for the new The Infernal Devices covers which will be revealed later today!

Rehearsals Underway for ‘Shadowhunters’

Untitled

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.

New ‘Mortal Instruments’ Covers Debuting Tuesday + ‘Infernal Devices’ Coming Wednesday

Beginning September 1, The Mortal Instruments and The Infernal Devices books are being repackaged with all-new covers. While we’ve already glimpsed the new cover for City of Bones (see it here).

Cassandra Clare suddenly made Tuesday and Wednesday a hell of a lot more exciting with news that the remaining five covers of The Mortal Instruments will be released tomorrow via ABC Family’s Shadowhunters social media accounts beginning at 1pm EST/10am PST.

But that’s not all. The new covers for The Infernal Devices will drop the following day — Wednesday — but where they’ll debut remains a mystery at this point. Cassie said to stay tuned to find out where.

Cassie also shared two teasers from the new covers — one from each series.

I bet you can guess the characters :)

But for now, be sure you’re following these Shadowhunters social media accounts. We’re guessing that since there are five of them that each will be unveiling a cover.
