After years of being the object of every girl’s desire, he finds himself in an unfamiliar position — falling in love with Clary. . . SERIES REGULAR, PLEASE SUBMIT ALL ETHNICITIES

[SIMON LEWIS] Early 20s, intelligent, very handsome in a non-calculated kind of way, Simon Lewis is Clary Fray’s long-time best friend. He’s the first to find humor in any
situation. An accounting student by day, Simon spends his free time performing in a band.
His loyalty and feelings for Clary are tested as he fights alongside her on an epic journey.
Because of this, he is ultimately turned into a vampire and struggles to maintain his
humanity while simultaneously accepting his fate. . . SERIES REGULAR, PLEASE SUBMIT ALL

STORY LINE: Clary Fray is perfectly normal; she’s a budding art student who loves spendingĀ time with her friends and family. On her 18th birthday, however, Clary discovers she is partĀ of an age-old battle between demons and an elite race of warriors known as
Shadowhunters. When her mother is kidnapped and her home is destroyed, so is her sense
of reality. Clary must now understand her new role in an ancient battle, and come to terms

ABC Family hasn’t always had the best record, but the network fits the target demographic (perhaps skewing a little young) and did kick off the career of acting gem Shailene Woodley (DIVERGENT), so let’s hope we get the same caliber of acting from SHADOWHUNTERS!
