Jocelyn is the mother to protagonist Clary Fray, who is kidnapped in the beginning of the series, sparking Clary to discover Jocelyn’s secret Shadowhunter past.
Roy is a Canadian actress best known for her roles in “19-2” and “Heartland”. Like Alan van Sprang, who plays villain Valentine, Roy will be a recurring guest star rather than a full cast member.
Other casting includes Katherine McNamara as Clary Fray, Emereaude Toubia as Isabelle Lightwood, Dominic Sherwood as Jace Wayland, Alberto Rosende as Simon Lewis, Harry Shum Jr. as Magnus Bane, Matthew Daddario as Alec Lightwood and Isaiah Mustafa as Luke Garroway.
ABC Family’s “Shadowhunters” is produced by Constatin Film and is currently in development.
