Get ready because the Shadow World will be descending in Los Angeles again for this year’s convention with the TV adaptation, Shadowhunters.

Check out the info below:

Friday March 25, 2016 2:00pm – 3:00pm
Microsoft Theater

Based on the bestselling young adult fantasy book series The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare, Freeform’s hit new original series Shadowhunters follows 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. Now thrown into the world of demon hunting after her mother is kidnapped, Clary must rely on the mysterious Jace and his fellow Shadowhunters Isabelle and Alec to navigate this new dark world. With her best friend, Simon, in tow, Clary must now live among faeries, warlocks, vampires, and werewolves to find answers that could help her find her mother. Showrunner Ed Decter, executive producer McG, and series cast members Dominic Sherwood, Matthew Daddario, Emeraude Troubia, Alberto Rosende, and Isaiah Mustafa will partake in the Q&A panel.

‘Jennifer and Kristen have done such a great job of navigating that; they’re witty, strong, funny, cool, young women. It’s really just nice to see that it’s possible to go through something like that and still be genuinely awesome people.’

‘When I first met with agents I was asked, “Well, what makes you so special? Everybody in LA is a cousin or a daughter of someone.”‘

She adds: ‘At the beginning, that was the most interesting thing about me. Now I’ve done eight films, it’s an afterthought. I get kids who say, “Oh, I love your movie, but my mum loves your dad.” It’s really nice to be able to share that with him, but it doesn’t define who I am career-wise.’
