Sitting down with the cast of Shadowhunters, I had a few things on my mind. It had been a few years since I had been in Toronto and say down with the movie cast. But let me tell you I have learned a lot since then about interviewing, about being vocal, and about asking questions.
The Simon and Izzy of the movies is gone and that was a hard thing for me. Not for Izzy - though I love Jemima, she was never Izzy for me. But I did love Robbie Sheehan as Simon - he was everything I ever wanted for the nerdy boy that I loved. But then you meet Emeraude and Alberto and as they took their seats - that's all you need to know that these two are what you have been waiting for.
Look, I will be the first to tell you that I don't agree with what they have done to the storyline, but I will also be the first to tell you that has no bearing on my love for the cast.
The thing is Emeraude and Alberto charmed me and if they are this adorable in person I can only imagine how great they will be on the show. Regardless of anything I am their fan.
Shadowhunters premieres January 12th on ABC Family/Freeform.
