Alberto Rosende and Emeraude Toubia have been cast as Simon Lewis and Isabelle Lightwood in ABC Family’s “Shadowhunters,” Variety reports.
The series, based on Cassandra Clare’s bestselling “Mortal Instruments” novels, will be the first leading role in an American production for either actor.
“Shadowhunters” centers on Clary Fray, who discovers on her 18th birthday that she descends from a long line of Shadowhunters, human-angel hybrids who hunt demons. When her mother is kidnapped, Clary is drawn into the world of demon hunting with the mysterious Jace (Dominic Sherwood), his fellow Shadowhunters Isabelle (Toubia) and Alec, and her best friend Simon (Rosende).
The role of Clary hasn’t been cast. The character was played by Lily Collins in the 2013 film adaptation “The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones.”
Production is set to begin this month in Toronto.
