THE MORTAL INSTRUMENTS television show SHADOWHUNTERS has cast another original character, Captain Vargas!
Actress Lisa Marcos (HEMLOCK GROVE, DIARY OF A MAD BLACK WOMAN) is joining the SHADOWHUNTERS family, but not as any character you’d recognize. She’ll be playing an original character named Captain Vargas, who will likely be Luke Garroway’s boss, given his career change from bookshop owner in the books to police officer on television.
She certainly looks the part!
Captain Vargas is not the series’ first original character. It was previously announced that Valentine will have a female henchman named Midori (played by Mouna Traoré) who will make appearances throughout the season.
SHADOWHUNTERS is currently filming in Toronto and will begin airing on ABC Family in January 2016.
