    This is a good opportunity for anyone and I would like to go to the casting because I think I have the tools and requirements necessary to focus at full capacity and be an actor and would be a great honor if I was given this opportunity to be an actor is not just pretend to be else but move to another person and the audience feel that feeling that you give , is to know how to call public attention and have that escanto that pleases others I believe I have the necessary tools and really wanted to give me the opportunity may not be easy but nothing in life is easy .

    I got acting classes for a year and I love the theater and everything that has to do with acting veoa famous actors and wonder that how they got up there and is pure dedication and effort that would be what I would give for the company working on some day I am responsible and committed would be a good opportunity to have a role in Shadowhunters I love the series and the actors are very charismatic and especially cute.

  14. I'm from Latin America. Let's be honest, it won't be easy to act here, keep contact with my family there and my studies, seeing as I'm not a legal adult.

I'm willing to be more than the outsider in my own life.

    I've read The Mortal Instruments more times than I can count. I started reading them when I was about 11 or 12.
    I've always wanted them to turn into a TV show and now here you are! I would love to audition and be a part of this.

  22. I would really love it if you gave me a shot to be on the show and my mom always told be I could be an actor so this would be a dream come true please get back to me if you can.

  23. I am a huge fan of Shadowhunters. It really made a difference in my life. Would you be willing to accept people to work on tech crew, interns, assistants, actors, extras, or anything? I have worked on multiple shows, I have even programmed moving lights. I have many talents, and I'm a fast learner. I'm sure that I could excel at anything you threw at me, and I'd be an excellent asset.

    Thanks for this oportunity 🙂

  25. I'm a young teenage girl, so I know I'm not eligible to portray Maia, or Tessa when the time comes. But I would like to play Maureen Brown. We are the same age and this could be my shot at acting.I'm in love with the idea of pretending to be someone else, and to get lost in there world.Though I have a family who doesn't support me in my dreams, and may of crushed them a bit, but I still pursue them. I'm fun, outgoing and would be honored to be chosen and participate in a phenomenon such as this. I have experienced the magic of the books written by the talented Cassandra Clare, and I would be esteemed to help bring it to life.

    Hi! I would absolutely love to join the Shadowhunters family. I have read all the books in the entire series and have been in love with them since the very first word.

    I feel that I, Jasmine Miller, should audition for shadowhunters on free-form because every show on free-form has drama in it including shadowhunters. drama brings teenagers around my age. teenagers relate to more to other teens better then relating to young adults. growing up I have been acting or everything I can. Acting make me happy and smile and that is the most important reason to me. I think that it would be cool adding different age group to shadowhunters.

  31. HI, I'm spanish actress actually starring a Tv series in Spain.
    Looking forward to move on, and work in USA. I like this Tv show because I'm also a stunt woman, so I love action.

    Thank you for your attention,

    Hoping for your news.
