Dominic Sherwood has been casted as the lead in Shadowhunters, ABC Family series based on the “The Mortal Instruments” books!

The 25-year-old actor will be playing Jace Wayland who is known for his sexy cockiness & bad ass shadow hunting skills. The series will start off with an 18-year-old Clary Fray, 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 (originally played by Lena Headey from Game of Thrones) 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.

This announcement has sent a positive uproar in the fandom community applauding McG for his casting choice.

The fandom community is now waiting in anticipation for the announcement of who will portray the beloved Clary Fray? While majority are having their fingers crossed for actress Molly Quinn, but for now the fans have taken over Photoshop and are flooding the fandom feeds with their fan edits of the new and maybe improved Jace Wayland!
