Shadowhunters ( The Mortal Instruments TV Series)

Shadowhunters ( The Mortal Instruments TV Series)

It is a book series that is loved by tens of millions. It was a movie that was loved by too few to continue. Now ABC Family is ready to right all wrongs from 2013’s well meaning but ultimately unsuccessful feature film The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones with the exciting series Shadowhunters. The Mortal Instrument novels are finally getting their well deserved due and so too could several up and coming performers looking to make their break in the world of television acting.

Based on the bestselling novels by Cassandra Clare, Shadowhunters will reboot the gripping story of 18 year old Clary Fray, a seemingly normal teenage girl living a normal life. When she discovers that she is

in fact a Shadowhunter, a human/angel hybrid whose purpose is to hunt down demons unable to be seen by mortal beings, her world and the world of those close to her changes forever. The hour long series begins with the events of the original novel, City of Bones and will move on to include all of the amazing action, heartbreak and romance from the follow-up entries City of Ashes, City of Glass, City of Fallen Angels, City of Lost Souls and City of Heavenly Fire while expanding on Clare’s legendary text as well.

ABC Family has compiled an outstanding cast for this incarnation of the beloved stories that will be led by Katherine McNamara (Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials, The Thundermans, Jessie), Dominic Sherwood (Vampire Academy, The Cut, Not Fade Away), Alberto Rosende (Blue Bloods, The Swing of Things), Harry Shum Jr. (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: The Green Legend, Glee), Maxim Roy (Heartland, The Dead Zone), Emeraude Toubia (Voltea Pa’Que Te Enamores, Cosita Linda), Alan Van Sprang (Reign, Beauty and the Beast), Isaiah Mustafa (Nikita, Horrible Bosses, Madea’s Big Happy Family) and Matthew Daddario (When the Game Stands Tall, Delivery Man, Cabin Fever). The series is being produced by accomplished filmmaker McG (Supernatural, Nikita, Chuck), Michael Lynne (The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King, The Golden Compass, A Nightmare on Elm Street), Robert Shaye (Frequency, Hairspray, Alone in the Dark) and Ed Decter (Unforgettable, In Plain Sight, The Client List) who is leading the charge to adapt the stories for television.

  3. Tiffany- Diandra Botnick

    Hi there,

    I’m Tiffany- Diandra Botnick and I am a 17 year old female from Toronto, Canada. Upon hearing about this television show, my first thoughts were that the series City of Bones, as I have already witnessed on television and in the novels, provides suspense, mystery and some slight horror as well. I would like to join the cast of this series because the City of Bones series by Cassandra Clare, possesses a magnificent story line filled with fantasy and supernatural characters.

    I would like to say that I have had a moderate amount of acting and on-stage performances. I have taken Drama classes at my high school for the past three years. There, I have taken part in performances such as radio dramas, and monologues, as well as intensive drama performances along with the rest of my class. I have also done a performance for my Musical Theater class, titled ”Anything Goes”. While I played the role of the reporter in this production, I had the opportunity to act, sing and dance. To bring the end of the school year to a close, my class and I presented the hour-long musical to the rest of the school, which possessed over 2000 students. However, although this was my longest performance, it was not my only performance. I have also done various solo monologues, music performances where I have sang, and a few dance performances.

    I am 5”7 with brown hair, brown eyes and glasses. My ethnicity is Caucasian.

    Thank you,

    – Tiffany- Diandra Botnick
    This series is a wonderful blend of genres. Please contact me.

    Hi!
    I would love tobe part of the Shadowhunters as its more than just a show or book. I’m rereading the TMI for the fifth time!! And love it even more; i have this sense of longing whenever i think or talk about shadowhunters. I have even started to set up a wix website/ blog called Shadowhunters and have signrd the poll #saveshadowhunters.

    I am 13 yrs old, (14 in may 2019) and am 5ft2. I have blonde hair, green eyes and am fairly tanned. I am from England, am learning french and can dance, sing and act. Fairly clever, exciteable and unique: i dont care what other people think of me. I play team sports; netball, basketball, hockey, table tennis and javelin. I also do fitness.

    I would love to have the chance to work with amazing people who have made Cassandra Clare’s books come alive. Thank you for having the time to read my response.

    Hi, my name is Kayla Fisher and i would like to be considered as a role in the cast of TMI Shadowhunters.
    I fell in love with the TMI series after my mum got them as an extra set ( being a bookworm) and then have watched the TV show and film. I have always loved drama and the arts and have been told i’m equally good at them all. I live in South England and am 13 years old. I have blonde hair, green eyes, tanned skin and am fairly athletic. I would love to be given the chance to show you what i can do and i would love to be able to work with the team. I hope you consider me. I am also doing a french course so if need i would be able to speak french. I feel as if i would be able to act as a shadowhunter character due to my closeness with the characters as if i was part of the books, it is like i am best friends will them all and i was there watching the events occur. I hate to admit it but there are parts of the show and books where i have cried (i now own the Bane Chronicles, The Shadowhunters Academy and TID, waiting yet to buy the set of TDA) at sad moments. I hope you will consider me.
    Many thanks,
    Kayla Fisher

    Hi, I’m Sariah Kelleher. And I’ve been a fan since almost ten years now and I’m still loving the series of the Shadowhunters. I haven’t yet had any experience of acting but am willing and wanting to be apart of the Shadowhunters cast. I have black hair, with dark brown eyes, and have read the infernal devices and would love to audition for the role of Tessa Gray.

  9. Tyara

    Hey, My names Tyara. I am 23 (blonde hair-long, blue eyes, 5’5″), and have enjoyed this novel series since i was about 16. I would love be opportunity to be a part of this because it will allow me to help people see there is a light at the end of every tunnel and teach them life lessons. The books have taught me to never give up, and take every chance to be able to better myself. It has taught me to love unconditionally and to always stay true to who i am. So with that being said i would love to be able to give that back to someone Ive never met. If you want to hear more or see a picture of me, please e-mail. thank you for your consideration.

  11. Albiona Spahiu

    My name is Albiona, and I am 19 years old. I have always had a passion for movies, and acting in general ever since I was old enough to understand what I was watching. I took a one month acting class with the Toronto Film Academy last summer, and I knew I wanted to pursue acting, or at least try. This show looks very interesting, and seems like it hasn’t a dramatic touch to it, which is my favourite kind of role. I would really appreciate being given a chance at making my dream a reality.
    Thank you, Albiona.

  13. Elle Molera

    I’m Ellie and I’m 21 years old, 5’7 height, 55kg. Brown eyed and brown haired. Slim and quite tall. I currently reside in London, England. My ethnicity is hispanic/asian. Upon reading the whole TMI books, I am inspired to be a part of this show as one of the characters from the books or perhaps one of the Shadowhunters.
    I have an experience in sound and post-production as well as acting. I believe that portraying a shadowhunter must be swift, precise as well as well-disciplined which reflects a part of my personality. In some ways I am also extroverted, highly communicative and an easy learner.

    I am looking forward to hearing from you.

  14. Marlyn Wall

    Hi, My name is Marlyn Wall. I am 19 years of age. I’m 5’2-5’3 depending on the scale. I have blue eyes and blonde hair. I’ve always wanted to Major in Film. The way a Tv show or even a movie can capture the hearts and deflected so many emotions of its watchers. I would love to be able to get to have the Same opportunity! Shadowhunters is by far my favorite TV show. Before a few months ago, it was the only TV show I would regularly watch on a weekly basis. After I read the City of Bones, I spent the next 1-2 months spending every chance I got to read the Mortal Instruments Series. Of course, I was so upset that I couldn’t keep reading about the world of the nephlim because of how much Cassandra Clare’s books intrigued me. I found another way to though. I began to read The Dark Artfices. In Shadowhunters and The Mortal Instrument Series my favorite character was always Izzy. She never let a man get her down. She always seemed tough, fearless, but also caring. Even if it seemed like she didn’t want to be. Later in the series I began to also love the character Emma Carstairs. Always determined but also seemed to be fearless. She learned how to find a way to stay with her best friend even if it meant she could never fall in love with him. The Shadowhunters Codex also helped me learn a lot about what the down worlders and demons would look like. Any part in the Shadowhunters series would be an honor.

  21. Fa Mos

    Hello, my name is Fa Mos and I’m 18 years old. I’m about 5 foot 4 and have a tan skin. I am from Asian descendant but was raised in the Netherlands where I currently live. I am willing to travel and I’m fluent in English. I spend a year in the US at the age of 14. I love to travel and explore new things. Once I find something that I love I am completely dedicated to it.
    Shadowhunters is an amazing show and I love how all the story lines fall together to create this beautiful picture. It is artistic in it’s own right. I also love how it is so character driven in a realistic but different way. It deals with common topics such as feeling all alone or not knowing who you are in Clary’s case. .It’s relatable and offers you an escape to a completely different universe. One where all the stories are true.
    As to the why I would like to be part of this? I have so much respect for the amazing cast and crew who work on this. There is so much that goes on behind the scenes that many will not even know off. I would love to be part of it. I have always loved movies and am able to relate so much to characters. Almost every movie I end up crying when something bad happens as if I feel their pain. Stories, movies and TV-shows are my own secret hideout. It’s always been a passion and I would love to do something with it. If you’re still with me by now I would like to thank whoever is reading this.
    All the love,
    Fa Mos

    My name is Morgan Henke-King. I am 21 years old, 5’7, and dark blonde. I have a background in dance (10 years) and martial arts (5 years). As a female martial artist I absolutely adore the example set by this show. I read the books a few years ago and they only encouraged my journey in martial arts. Seeing it come to life in this series is inspiring. Not to mention how close the team of actors is with one another and how supportive they are of eachother.
    The chance to just be a part of a team like that would be a privilege let alone the chance to act in a series composed of such strong female leads and to set an example for other young girls myself. Just the opportunity to audition would be a privilege.

  36. Shelby

    G’day, My name is Shelby I’m 16 yrs old a born Aussie (Australian) I have kinda pretzel coloured hair. dark brown eyes, 5’6 in height and quite pale and all about the “no pain no gain” phrase I have a quite bubbly personality and will listen to what you have to tell me (unless you’re my mother… I’m joking.. maybe)

    As an Australian citizen that lives in Perth there is very little to do, so I joined a acting class for the experience and the shits and giggles. I’ve always been interested in the entertainment industry if it was songwriting or confidently performing in front of my family and peers, I have been hairspray the musical (a lot of dancing) and other little plays with my good friends for fun. But I believe that being introduced into this whole new world will be an amazing opportunity and will change and increase my acting experience.

    Kind Regards
