We’ve been waiting to hear this since San Diego Comic Con last year when it was announced that Jordan Kyle will be entering the show.
Entertainment Weekly is now confirming that Chai Hansen will be playing the role.
“Jordan comes into Simon’s life in a fun, unexpected way,” showrunners Todd Slavkin and Darren Swimmer tell EW. “The two instantly hit it off, but we soon find out there’s a lot more to Jordan than meets the eye, and repercussions that affect more than just Simon.”
While book fans know Jordan’s backstory and his (fraught) relationship with existing characters, let’s see how Jordan is adapted on screen and whether he’ll remain true to the book character!
Shadowhunters season 3 premieres a month earlier than the previously announced date: Tuesday, March 20th at 8/7c on Freeform.
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.

The new EPs talked about ramping up the show character-wise. We’re also going to see a more darker show.
“There were a lot of cool things that perhaps could be cooler, visual-effect wise, the look of the show,” Slavkin tells EW. “We took the rooms and we darkened them.”
Slavkin also confirmed on Twitter that casting for the much-anticipated Sebastian Verlac/Morgenstern is on-going.
