ABC Family Casts Dominic Sherwood in ‘Shadowhunters’ Series

British actor Dominic Sherwood has been cast as Jace in ABC Family’s saga series “Shadowhunters,” based on “The Mortal Instruments” books, Variety has learned.

Sherwood starred in “Vampire Academy” and is also known for being featured in Taylor Swift’s “Style” video.

The supernatural series follows 18-year-old Clary Fray (yet to be cast), who finds out on her birthday that she is not who she thinks she is, and that she comes from a long line of Shadowhunters, human-angel hybrids who hunt down demons. When Clary’s mother, Jocelyn, is kidnapped, she is thrown into the world of demon hunting with mysterious Shadowhunter Jace (Sherwood) and her best friend, Simon. 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.

Jace is described as narcissistic and “lethally gorgeous.” He is a determined and expert Shadowhunter, as well as a skilled soldier in the war against demons. After his father is killed, Jace makes it his mission to seek revenge on the man who is responsible.

In the 2013 feature film “The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones,” Jamie Campbell Bower starred as Jace, alongside Lily Collins as Clary.

Based on the series by Cassandra Clare, “Shadowhunters” is produced by Constantin Film and exec produced by Ed Decter and McG, who will also direct the first episode.
