Casting News: ABC Family welcomes David Castro to the ‘Shadowhunters’ family as Raphael Santiago

david castroOne of the most anticipated castings we have seen in for Raphael. The reason for this is that he was not cast in The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones movie and was definitely missed.

Well we can now say welcome to the fandom David Castro who was cast as Raphael in the Shadowhunters TV show earlier today.

You may recognise David from 27 Dresses and Where God Left His Shoes.

ABC Family said this about Raphael in the press release:

An elegantly handsome, well-dressed vampire, Raphael is ambitious and cunning, aspiring to lead the New York vampire clan.

We cannot wait to see David in action as one of our favourite vampires in the series.

Shadowhunters is into the 2nd week of filming the first episode The Mortal Cup. It is set to air in 2016 on ABC Family in the US and Canada. At the moment we do not have any news about the show airing in any other countries.
