Last week Freeform's Shadowhunters
, which is based on the Cassandra Clare book series, The Mortal Instruments
, introduced the character of Meliorn. The actor who plays the faerie knight, Jade Hassouné, recently talked to Jamie Ruby of SciFi Vision in an exclusive interview about his work on the show.
The actor auditioned for other roles on the series before he got Meliorn, which he thinks was perfect for him. "It was an audition, just a regular audition. I got to audition for Alaric first, and from that I got a call back about a week later for Raphael Santiago, and then a week later for Meliorn, and by that point I'd really delved into it, and I think Meliorn was the perfect one. And from that audition, I got a call back, which was my final call back.
"And then it happened really, really fast. I mean, the whole process took about a month, but then everything happened really, really quickly after that. You know, after that, I was on set probably about a week later.
