Katherine McNamara & Alisha Wainwright Are Proud of 'Shadowhunters' Repping Strong Female Leads

Katherine McNamara and Alisha Wainwright play two of the strongest female characters on television right now on Shadowhunters.

The two actresses opened up about how the show is representing strong and not-afraid-of-anything female roles.

“For me, having a lot of young black women coming up to me and vocalizing seeing a dynamic black woman who’s not playing a secondary character to a male was actually something that they very much enjoy and are looking for on television today,” Alisha told Syfy during the recent NYCC.

She adds, “To have that in genre too is so fun and important and I didn’t realize I was carrying that torch until they made me aware of how important it was to them. That gives me the feels for sure.”
