Shadowhuntersfinally Finds Its Simon
' Shadowhunters ' is rounding out its super good-looking cast with two new beautiful faces.
Alberto Rosende has been cast as fan-favorite character Simon Lewis and Emeraude Toubia as badass Shadowhunter Isabelle Lightwood, ABC Family announced today. They join Dominic Sherwood, who was recently cast as leading man Jace , in the network's highly anticipated new series 'Shadowhunters.' In case you need convincing that Toubia is the perfect Izzy, please see the following 'gram:
'Shadowhunters,' based on the popular 'Mortal Instruments' YA series from author Cassandra Clare, follows Clary Fray, who discovers she is from a long line of Shadowhunters -- human-angel hybrids who hunt down demons -- on her 18th birthday. Soon, she and her best friend Simon are transported to the Shadow World by an elite team of Shadowhunters, where they learn secrets that are anything but mundane.
Simon is an important character for fans. He's kinda like the comic relief of the group, and his feelings for his best friend Clary are a good foil for Jace's cheeky advances. That is, until he meets Izzy. In the books, Simon and Izzy start dating on the DL, so Rosende and Toubia must have amazing chemistry.
Oh, and Rosende is super cute, BTW.
As for Isabelle Lightwood, she's gorgeous, extremely talented with a whip and a little rough around the edges. Simon brings out her softer side, but she's still one tough Shadowhunter. We can't wait to see Toubia kick ass.
