Actor will play Jace Wayland, the role played by Jamie Campbell-Bower in the film adaptation of Cassandra Clare’s novels
ABC Family has found its male lead for new series “Shadowhunters,” based on the best-selling “Mortal Instruments” novels by Cassandra Clare, TheWrap has learned.
Actor Dominic Sherwood, who last starred in the “Vampire Academy” film, will play Jace, one of the titular Shadowhunters in the urban fantasy adaptation.
“Shadowhunters” follows 18-year-old Clary Fray who finds out on her birthday that she is not who she thinks she is, but rather comes from a long line of Shadowhunters — human-angel hybrids who hunt down demons. When her mother Jocelyn is kidnapped, Clary is thrown into the world of demon hunting with mysterious Shadowhunter Jace and her best friend Simon.

Sherwood’s Jace is described as narcissistic, lethally gorgeous and a skilled demon hunter, whose mission in life is to find the man who killed his father.
“Shadowhunters” is produced by Constantin Film and executive produced by Ed Decter and McG, who will also direct the first episode.
