The Shadowhunters season 2 cast adds the actor who will bring the role of Sebastian Verlac to life, Will Tudor. Details have been revealed ahead.
According to TV Line, Tudor is known for his appearances in the phenomenal series Game of Thrones and Human. Fans of the Freeform series will be seeing him as Sebastian, an iconic role from Mortal Instruments books penned by Cassandra Clare. The second part of season 2 airs later this year and he will be appearing on those episodes.
The earlier source reported that showrunners Todd Slavkin and Darren Swimmer is extremely happy about the performance of Tudor. Slavkin believes that he is so good in portraying the role.
Slavkin further gushes about his amazing and mind-blowing talent. The 51-year-old screenwriter explained that they accepted Tudor in his self-taped audition which they found chilling.
“When he taped, he had an American accent, which was really interesting. But when we saw his reel, saw him on Game of Thrones and Humans, then looked at our take on the character, we were like, ‘Oh, you are from London. You are from the London Institute. Use your British accent.’ And it works so well.”

Swimmer added that Tudor has this vulnerability that can truly captivate viewers. Originally, Sebastian is from the Paris Institute in the books. However, since his British accent worked so well, the series will introduce him as a character from the London Institute.
Moreover, Slavkin explained that they will be creating their version of Sebastian. He believes that after all, they have always had their own spin in the series. He hinted that other information will remain as a surprise.
Furthermore, there has been a surprising twist when Tudor appeared for his first table read. It turns out that he and Dominic Sherwood (who plays Jace Wayland) have a real friendship that started way back in England.
Tudor’s Sebastian is a highly educated shadowhunter, brilliant, charming and possesses fighting abilities that are way better than anyone, Entertainment Weekly reported. This Shadowhunters season 2 cast addition will certainly lure viewers to watch more episodes in the future.
