There’s been plenty of casting announcements since Shadowhunters premiered last season. But none perhaps as most anticipated than that of the charming and devilish Sebastian. Well, the wait is finally over.
Shadowhunters has found its Sebastian in English actor Will Tudor, who is best known for his roles in Game of Thrones and Humans. Tudor also appeared in Vampire Academy with our Jace, Dominic Sherwood, so this is like a reunion for the two.
Sebastian is described as “a charming, brilliant and highly educated Shadowhunter with unrivaled fighting abilities. Originally from a foreign Institute, he finds his way to the New York Institute after befriending one of the show’s main characters.”
“Todd and Darren sent me Will’s audition tape and after I watched it I sent Dominic a text that said ‘congratulate Will for me’ — because I knew it would be him!” Cassandra Clare told us, Fangirlish, and Mundie Moms in an exclusive statement.
Sebastian will appear in the back half of Shadowhunters’ second season.
Welcome to the Shadowhunters family, Will!
