As promised, our latest Shadowhunters casting announcement is here. Please welcome Alisha Wainwright as Maia Roberts!
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!
The official website notes Maia as a “brand new” character. However, it probably means to the show because this description is definitely of the Maia we know from the books.
