Have you ever wondered about where our extraordinary cast came from? Here's a list of some of the coolest roles the cast had before Shadowhunters!


1. Dominic Sherwood took center stage in Taylor Swift’s most recent music video Style as that obligatory hot guy.


2. Katherine McNamara started her career at 13. On Broadway. In a Sondheim Musical. (A Little Night Music with Catherine Zeta Jones & Angela Lansbury). That is some no-fooling difficult music that takes some serious chops.


3. Uhm. Isaiah Mustafa is The Old Spice commercial guy. What else is there to say about that, really? He’s. Awesome.


4. Alberto Rosende (Simon) once starred as Link Larkin in a musical production of Hairspray. Of course he did, that guy’s face practically screams “Nicest Kids in Town,” right?

6. Matthew Daddario starred as Channing in Delivery Man, playing one of Vince Vaughn’s many, many children.


7. Harry Shum Jr. was Mike Chang in Glee. His performance on the show led to The Mortal Instruments author Cassie Clare declaring he would be the perfect Magnus Bane. And that was three years ago!


8. The first acting gig for David Castro (Raphael) came when he was 5 years old. It was a SpongeBob commercial. Since then, it’s been a lot of awesome roles. Including The Little Fugitive and 27 Dresses.
