Here we are, Shadowhunters! We finally meet one of the main antagonists of The Mortal Instruments series, Sebastian Verlac.
TV Line is exclusively reporting that actor Will Tudor will portray the villain. We will see him first later this year in second half of the sophomore season.
“He’s so good in this part,” showrunner Todd Slavkin gushes to TVLine, throwing out adjectives like “amazing” and “mind-blowing.” Fellow showrunner Darren Swimmer concurs, adding that there’s a “vulnerability” to Tudor’s performance that’s truly “captivating.”
As with the many changes from book to screen, the character of Sebastian will be different too.
“We really put our own spin on him the character,” Slavkin says, though he wants any further specifics to remain a surprise for fans. “As we’ve done with all the episodes you’ve seen, we’ve always had our own spin on everything, and Sebastian is no different.”
If you think he looks familiar, you may have caught a glimpse of him in Game of Thrones as Olyver.
