ABC Family has gone across the pond to find one of its Shadowhunters.
British actor Dominic Sherwood will portray Jace in the upcoming drama series, based on Cassandra Clare’s Mortal Instruments book saga, the network announced Monday.
As previously reported, the series will follow a girl named Clary Fray (who has yet to be cast), who discovers on her 18th birthday that she’s a Shadowhunter: a human-angel hybrid born to hunt demons. Following her mother’s kidnapping, Clary teams up with a fellow Shadowhunter (Sherwood’s Jace) and her best friend Simon to fulfill her destiny.
Sherwood — whose TV credits include British series The Cut and Mayday — recently starred as the male lead in Taylor Swift’s “Style” music video.
