‘Shadowhunters’ Casts Katherine McNamara as Clary

Shadowhunters (based on the young adult Cassandra Clare book series and box-office disaster The Mortal Instruments) has found its Clary Fray in actress Katherine McNamara.

She joins already cast ABC Family co-stars Dominic Sherwood (Jace), Alberto Rosende (Simon) and Emeraude Toubia (Isabelle) — the latter of which rocked the internet with controversy for being latino.

Hopefully McNamara has enough flowing red locks to keep any ire at bay.

McNamara herself took to Twitter to express her excitement of stepping into the role of the female lead, who finds out she is secretly a Shadowhunter, a race descended from angels tasked with protecting earth from demons, vampires and werewolves.

We must say, her hair game is on point.
