  1. Hi I’m Amielia I currently live in Qld, Australia. I have dark brown hair, brown eyes and tan skin.

    I am 13 yrs old turning 14 in late May.
    The reason I like the mortal instruments series is because of the feircness and the femininity of the woman on the show, how they showcourage with handling things and being in control. I have always wanted to act and it is a very strong asset of mine.

    My favourite character from the books are Emma Carstairs and Tessa Gray. My favourite thing about these characters is their willingness to fight for the ones they loves. I can relate. I am willing to give 250% if I am given the opportunity to audition for either one of these roles whether it be in the near or far future.

  4. Hi!
    Ever since I finished the books I’ve wanted to have more of the mortal instruments in my life. I absolutely fell in love with Cassandra Clare and have wanted to get more involved somehow and I feel like this would be an amazing opportunity!
    While reading the books I felt I had the strongest connection to Izzy, then more-so Emma Carstairs (although like many I wished I was like Tessa). I feel like my personality is more similar to Emma but my experiences and family ties may be closer to Tessa.
    Physically I might be closer to Tessa but honestly any opportunity would be a privileged.

    I am 20, Canadian, about 5’8, hazel eyes, brown hair, in decent shape, hour glass figure. (I absolutely hate to sound arrogant but) I have been told I am very attractive.

    I am willing to travel, send photos or videos, and whatever else might be needed 🙂

  6. hey, my name is farah and i’m moroccan and i’m proud of it. I’m going to be 15 in july. I’m actually in love with the shadowhunters because its amazingg, im waiting for season 3 right now i cant wait anymore. My dream was always to be on tv, my family, my friends, everyone can see me acting like them I’ve always dreamed to be on a tv show . There are a lot of people right here that going to say “ shes moroccan absolutely she’s going to be ugly and all bad adjectives about me but i can say that im beautiful just the way i’m, let focus on the important part, i’ve never loved a book or even a serie as much this one there are talented, if i had an opportunity to act with them i would probably choose to be someone’s sister but not evil of course , izzy is my favorite one because she’s incredible but clary too she’s on the top, when i see them fighting and wish that i can be with them and fight with them even if it’s not true. I’ve always dreamed to be part of a tv show but i think i will never give up on my dreams no matter how it’s cost ❤️

And i live in chapel hill north Carolina and all of my teachers think i should not be at school i should be famous by now because i am a singer and a song writer and a dancer and a DJ and i am a really good actor to and i work at a radio station and i record my own songs to and i make the music of my songs to and some times in the streets i put my song on out loud and i start dancing and then people start dancing to it to and i am in middle school to and i am 12 years old and i was jestum for the play the little mermaid and they wanted me to be Ariel or Ariel sisters but i could not just because i had dark skin and i was Latina to and i like this show so much to and i could be the new charter of shadowhunters and i can be one of the little cousin or izzys and Alice little brothers girl friend

  8. i would like to be in the show of shadowhunters and i am a singer and a dancer and a song writer and a DJ and i am a female and i am 12 years old and if i don't get in is there a movie or a show that i can be in .

  9. Hey there! I'm Emma-Elise (though my legal name is Elise). Not only have I seen the TV show but I have reviewed the episodes for the official Shadowhunters Amino! Anyways, playing Emma is a massive dream of mine. I know it takes talent but I'm looking for my big break! I may not be pretty but I'm determined to do my absolute best and then even better! Woking with amazing actors and actresses has been a distant dream that might just come true. At the moment I'm 14 but by the time Emma is introduced I'll be about 15 maybe. I have very dark blonde hair (I'm open to dying it, I'm actually planning on doing it in the future) and blue eyes but I'm open to contact lenses XD. I'm around 4' 9" and I live in Maidstone. I'm as pale as a ghost and I can copy accents if I can hear them and I'm given a little time to perfect it. But enough of me rambling, I hope you read this and contact me!

  14. Hello my name is Cheyenne I’m 16 and would really appreciate to be apart of this TV series. I love this series and the book series though the only acting experience I’ve had so far is in school plays. I know that’s not good enough but I think I could do a really good job if given the chance.

  15. My name is Rachel I live in Houston TX. I am half Mexican and half white . I have brown hair and brown eyes and I am 15 years old. I have been a fan of this show sense it came out on TV I would really love a chance to be on this show. I have never really acted for anything and I know that isn't necessarily a good thing but I really want to try. Thank you and i hope you will give me a chance.

  16. I am writing this for my two daughters Gabrielle (11 years old) and Alexis (9 years old). We have been watching this show as a "girls night" since the show started. They are very big fans and would love to be part of the production. We live in Newfoundland Canada but will do what is needed to have the chance to audition.

  17. Hi my name is Ruby Rose Ogier, acting is my dream which I know you've heard a lot but it's true. The mortal instruments is quite truly my favourite series, I think they have done a wonderful job at adapting the books and growing from there. In my mind I would love to be Emma Carstairs though I am not blond. I also love singing and though I am not fabulous dancer I still love to shake my booty around the house. I am an amateur looking to realise my dream because when I leave high school I can't imagine doing anything with my life, and there are not many ways of doing so at the present time for my parents are always working and I have a little sister not that I can be resentful they've sacrificed a lot for me. I live in Australia and can speak french as I am half French and lived there for around 5 years.

    I acted in few theatres, and I will be so interested to be part of shadowhunters family.

  19. I love this show, and having read all of the books multiple times I feel like this would be a good place to start an acting career.

    1. Hey my name is Luiza and I'm 16 years old. I'm 5'8 , have light brown curly hair with blond highlights . I don't have much experience with acting professionally because I never had a chance but I hope that that won't end my chances to play a role in shadowhunters. I love Emma's character and I couldn't stop thinking about how much I wanted to have her life, be able to live what she lived. I realised that somehow I could, acting. I don't really believe that it can come true because is hard to believe that I have a chance by writing here. Anyways thanks for the attention.

  20. Hi, my name is Emme. I am 14 years old and I live in the US. I have spent the better part of 2 years discovering all I can about the shadow world. I have shoulder length brown hair and green eyes. I am 5,6". I have been in all of my school musicals and have been in plays. I would love to play Livia Blackthorn when the time comes to cast her. I feel like I deeply relate to Livia in the way that I want to protect my family at any cost. I also have been a cheerleader for 4 years, so I have built up the endurance and flexibility skills needed for training for the role of a shadowhunter. Also, I have an A average in school, so It wouldn't be hard for me to transition to the tutoring I would have during filming. I feel as if this role was created for me (not to sound like every other teen girl). Whether you want me or not, I would definitely appreciate your consideration.
