Dominic Sherwood Joins ABC Family’s Shadowhunters as Jace Wayland


Jace Wayland 
ABC Family announced today that it has cast British actor Dominic Sherwood as Jace Wayland on their upcoming series “Shadowhunters.” Sherwood was recently seen starring in the feature film Vampire Academy and was featured in Taylor Swift’s “Style” video.

Based on the bestselling young adult fantasy book series “The Mortal Instruments” by Cassandra Clare, “Shadowhunters” follows 18 year-old Clary Fray who finds out on her birthday that she is not who she thinks she is, but rather comes from a long line of Shadowhunters — human-angel hybrids who hunt down demons. When her mother Jocelyn is kidnapped, Clary is thrown into the world of demon hunting with mysterious Shadowhunter Jace and her best friend Simon. Now living among faeries, warlocks, vampires and werewolves, Clary begins a journey of self-discovery as she learns more about her past and what her future may hold.

Narcissistic, and lethally gorgeous, Jace is a determined and expert Shadowhunter. A skilled soldier in a war against demons. After his father is killed, Jace makes it his life mission to seek revenge on the man who is responsible.

The Jace role was played by Jamie Campbell Bower in the 2013 feature film The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones.
