If you are a fan of The Mortal Instruments you’ve had some exciting news over the past few months with the announcement of the new TV series ‘Shadowhunters’ and some of the casting announcements. Fans of the series have been waiting with bated breath to see who would play the main character, Clary Fray.

ABC Family announced this week that Katherine McNamara will play Clary. Clary is the feisty artsy-student-turned-shadowhunter who doesn’t learn of her shadowhunter roots until she’s almost 18. In the series, we’ll learn about her family history, watch her shadowhunter abilities develop and follow Clary on an adventure to save her mom, who was abducted by a demon.
