Last week I introduced you to one half of 'Sizzy' Alberto Rosende who is to play Simon in the new Shadowhunters Tv show. This week I introduce to the other half of 'Sizzy', Emeraude Toubia who is to play Isabelle. My first thoughts of these two new actors included 'OMG!' and 'I think I'm in love!'. I'm not crazy, I swear!
Also, if your wondering why I'm not introducing you to the new cast members that have been released this past week, it's because I only write this type of post once a week and I want to give all the actors their own post. So, don't worry my post on our new Clary Fray will be here next week!
Okay! Let's get on with the show!
Firstly, I would just like to point out that I think this is going to be the most good looking cast I've ever seen in my entire life! I mean look at Isabelle!!
Like I said in my introductory posts to Dom Sherwood and Alberto Rosende, I think this cast is shaping up to be a bunch of actors we've never met before in anything else. I don't know if you guys have seen them in anything but, I know I haven't. Tell me in the comments if you've seen them in anything before!
Anyways, like I touched on in my post about Alberto Rosende, there was a lot of controversy surrounding these two actors because of their ethnicity. Which personally, I think, is completely unfair. As far as I'm aware the ethnicity of a lot of characters are not mentioned in the books and so you can't expect them to perfectly match the description you have of these characters in your head. Correct me if I'm wrong on that! These actors were obviously chosen to represent these characters because of their ability to act and their ability to portray the personality and characteristics of each individual character. Cassandra Clare was even asked by the casting team whether she minded if people from other ethnicities were cast and she said that she didn't mind as long as it wasn't specifically disclosed in the books. I absolutely support that and I think that as a fandom we should all support these actors and just give them a chance. Many of them are unknown or small actors and they are being thrown into a massive franchise which let's be honest is going to be so anticipated that it's going to be ridiculous. So, let's just support these actors, give them a chance and wait to see what they are going to do with their characters before we start judging them on minor details.
Personally, I've had enough of that talk so I'm not going to mention it in my posts again.
Let's get on with the beautiful Emeraudes fact file!
