If you've been following the progress of ABC Family's "Shadowhunters", then you know that they've been slowly revealing the cast to us, one character at a time. If you know this, then you also know that today is the day, they reveal who's playing Clary Fray. So without further ado,

Your new Clary Fray is.........

Katherine McNamara!

The 19-year old Disney star, who is most well known for her role as Myra in the Disney Channel original film "Girl Vs Monster", takes on the role of Clary Fray - the lead in the 2016 Television series based upon the series of best-selling books.

She also has a role in this years "The Scorch Trials", the sequel to 2014's "The Maze Runner" based upon James Dashner's best-selling trilogy, as Sonya - the leader of Group B.

Jace Wayland - Dominic Sherwood

Other cast members so far include, Vampire Academy alumni, Dominic Sherwood, who will be playing titular character & Shadowhunter, Jace Wayland. With that announcement came a host of fan reaction - mostly positive - as two very dedicated fandoms officially collided!

Isabelle Lightwood - Emeraude Toubia

Next came the announcement for who would be playing Isabelle and Simon. Isabelle, also a Shadowhunter and described as "gorgeous" in the best-selling series "The Mortal Instruments" written by Cassandra Clare, would be played by relative newcomer Emeraude Toubia. A stunning actress, with the looks pretty much spot-on to play Izzy.

Simon Lewis - Alberto Rosende

Simon, Clary's best friend and the "nerdy" guy, would be played by the adorable and ever so enthusiastic, Alberto Rosende. A casting choice that also garnered mostly positive reviews, and then an amass of fangirling, upon seeing him in his "Simon Glassess." (not pictured here, check out the previous article HERE.)

I've got to say, I'm pretty damn excited about this casting. She looks PERFECT for the part, and with the rest of the cast being spot-on so far, I think we're all in for a treat come 2016!!

What do you think of Katherine as Clary? Perfect? Or would you have preferred someone else?
