SHADOWHUNTERS Actors Explain Their Characters In New BTS Clip

SHADOWHUNTERS actors dish about their favorite characters!

A lengthy new clip from Beyond The Shadows: The Making of Shadowhunters is breaking down The Mortal Instruments characters we’ll be seeing on the show with the Shadowhunters actors!

Watch as Katherine McNamara, Dominic Sherwood, Alberto Rosende, Matthew Daddario, Emeraude Toubia, Harry Shum Jr, and Isaiah Mustafa break down their character’s best and worst personality traits. They also give some thoughts on the other characters and the relationships between characters.

We particularly enjoyed this segment because it certainly shows that the actors have considered their characters’ motivations at length while portraying them!

Shadowhunters follows Clary Fray, a seemingly normal New York City teen who discovers she’s a part of a secret half-human, half-angel race known as Shadowhunters after a mysterious battle rages right before her eyes on her 18th birthday. When her mother is attacked and kidnapped, Clary must join the other Shadowhunters she’s discovered to learn the ways of Shadowhunters and save her mother from the evil Valentine Morgenstern.

Shadowhunters premieres January 12, 2016 on FreeForm (formerly ABC Family).
