Shadowhunters - Casting Update: Alisha Wainwright Is Playing Maia In Shadowhunters Season 2! - 1003

Maia is a bartender at the Hunters Moon and one of the newest members of Luke’s pack. She is brave, slightly stubborn, and extremely loyal to her friends. Although she doesn’t like talking about it, she struggles with trust issues due to her troubled past and often uses humor and sarcasm to mask her true feelings. Now, with the Mortal Cup in Valentine's hands, Downworlders are in more danger than ever before and Maia will be forced to jump into action or lose the only family that she has left!

We love her already! Look how pretty she is!
