ABC Family's Shadowhunters, is off to a promising start, with Jace, Clary, Simon, Isabelle, Alec and Luke ALL Cast, it was only a matter of time before the big bad of the series, Valentine Morgenstern, was cast.

He was previously played in the movie by the ever-so-talented, Jonathan Rhys Meyers, an actor who had the skill to play the character perfectly, but with a bad script making the character almost unrecognisable to its book counter-part, the character of Valentine fell flat. Which is why it's fantastic news, that the 2016 Upcoming show, has a host of new writers, taking the Television Series in the right direction, and more importantly, with the right Valentine.

Ladies and gents, without further ado

Your NEW Valentine Morgenstern is......

Alan Van Sprang!!!

Known for his role as the mad king of France in the CW's "Reign", Van Sprang is a a divine addition to an already brilliant cast. I literally could not be happier with this casting. It may just be my favourite of the bunch.

Spoiler Alert: It IS my favourite of the bunch.

Van Sprang, rounds out the cast, joining Dominic Sherwood as Jace, Katherine McNamara as Clary, Alberto Rosende as Simon, Emeraude Toubia as Isabelle, Matthew Daddario as Alec, and Isaiah Mustafa as Luke!

Love them or hate them? The new cast is growing by the week!


What do you think of Alan Van Sprang as Valentine? Better than Jonathan Rhys Meyers? Or did you have your own choice?
