'Shadowhunters' Find its Jocelyn in Maxim Roy!

Maxim Roy has officially landed the role of Jocelyn Fray in the upcoming ABC Family series Shadowhunters!

Based on the bestselling young adult fantasy book series “The Mortal Instruments” by Cassandra Clare, Shadowhunters follows 18-year-old Clary Fray, who finds out on her birthday that she is not who she thinks she is but rather comes from a long line of Shadowhunters – human-angel hybrids who hunt down demons.

When her mother, Jocelyn, is kidnapped, Clary is thrown into the world of demon hunting with mysterious Shadowhunter Jace and her best friend, Simon. Now living among faeries, warlocks, vampires and werewolves, Clary begins a journey of self-discovery as she learns more about her past and what her future may hold.

Very beautiful, warm, protective and bold, Jocelyn Fray is Clary’s mother. On the surface, Jocelyn leads a normal life running an antiquities store. We will learn, however, that she harbors many secrets about a past life, particularly her ties to an ancient group of supernatural beings known as Shadowhunters. In order to defend Clary from danger, Jocelyn transforms from single mom back into one of the most lethal Shadowhunters that ever lived.

“Hey @ShadowhuntersTV fans! This is crazy! Thanks soooo much for the warm welcome! Can’t wait to get started! #Shadowhunters #Jocelyn :)” Maxim tweeted. “Hey @Kat_McNamara looking forward to meeting you, my lovely daughter :)”
