ABC Family has cast “Happyland” alum Katherine McNamara as Clary Fray in “Shadowhunters,” its adaptation of Cassandra Clare’s bestselling “Mortal Instruments” fantasy novels.
The female lead, 18-year-old Clary is a promising art student whose future is derailed when her mother is kidnapped and she discovers she descends from a long line of Shadowhunters, human-angel hybrids who hunts demons. Clary is thrown into a hidden shadow world filled with faeries, warlocks, vampires and werewolves, where she pursues demons with the mysterious Shadowhunter Jace and her best friend Simon.
McNamara, who’ll appear this year in “Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials,” joins Dominic Sherwood as Jace, Alberto Rosende as Simon Lewis, and Emeraude Toubia as the Shadowhunter Isabelle Lightwood.
Produced by Constantin Film, “Shadowhunters” begins production this month in Toronto.
