We're thrilled to announce Katherine McNamara (Clary Fray of 'Shadowhunters') will be attending Heroes of the Shadow World! Here's how you can meet her.

Here’s how to meet ‘Shadowhunters”s Katherine McNamara in NYC

Shadowhunters is a huge favorite of ours, and we want nothing more than to see the story continue. The series, which follows Clary Fray (Katherine McNamara) as she discovers that she is a Shadowhunter (cross between human and angel), has earned a place in our hearts, and on our SaveSaturdays list. There is nothing better than watching Clary become the empowered Shadowhunter she evolves to be.

If you’re a member of the Shadowfam, you’ll probably know about the hottest event of the next decade, Heroes of the Shadow World, taking place in New York City home of the Shadowhunters Institute. 

We’re thrilled to announce our queen Katherine McNamara (a.k.a. Clary Fray) will be attending the event and that fans will be able to get some facetime with our favorite angel-blooded Shadowhunter. What’s more is we’ve teamed up with the convention to offer one lucky Shadowhunter a free flight to the convention, convention tickets and one on one time with Katherine McNamara. 

Before you enter our contest (scroll to the bottom to enter) we’ve compiled our top 5 reasons that Clary Fray is the best. Don’t forget to tell us how much you love her.

Clary’s strong as hell

Clary’s eighteenth birthday is awful. She finds out not only that she’s a Shadowhunter, but also that her mother, Jocelyn, has been kidnapped by rogue Shadowhunters, known as The Circle. 

Clary is the perfect example of not knowing how strong you can be until you’re tested. Clary wasn’t prepared to take on the challenges she faces until she has no choice. Then she stepped up in a major way.

Clary also shows us that strength that can be found through surrounding yourself with the right people. She teams up with other Shadowhunters and grows her skills by learning to fight. Clary begins as a somewhat reluctant hero but manages to grow into the badass she was born to be.

Clary’s fiercely loyal

Clary’s loyalty is displayed from the very first episode. She will stop at nothing to save her mother, but her loyalty extends past just her family. Clary steps up for her fellow Shadowhunters over and over again, whether she’s sacrificing her memories to save Jace, or choosing to forego safety to protect her friends, Clary isn’t a stranger to making big sacrifices for her fellow Shadowhunters. 

Even some of Clary’s biggest mistakes are made out of love and loyalty. She proves time and time again that being there for the people she loves is most important, and we totally need her as our BFF.

Clary isn’t perfect

One of the most refreshing things about Clary is that she makes a mess of things sometimes. She isn’t some perfect superhero who swoops in and saves the day every time. Clary shows that life is messy and that no one can do everything perfectly. Even a Shadowhunter

Sometimes Clary trusts people she shouldn’t, and sometimes she makes decisions based on emotion rather than logic. However, Clary is a fully developed character, who has to overcome major traumas and experiences loss. The fact that those experiences don’t fade with the end of the episode, but contribute to her character over time makes her the most relatable Shadowhunter of the series.

Clary lifts up her other strong girls

We love that Clary isn’t trying to compete with her friends. We are sick of the mean girl trope, where everyone is a frenemy. We love nothing more than watching Clary and Isabelle (Emeraude Toubia) have each other’s backs. Isabelle and Clary became Shadowhunter besties from the very beginning. 

Whether they’re in makeover mode or removing demon possessions, Clary and Isabelle don’t turn their backs on each other. Their dynamic gives us faith in the team as a whole.

Clary questions rules & norms

Clary hasn’t grown up with all of the rules and prejudices that the rest of the Shadowhunters have, and she isn’t afraid to disagree. Their culture has a tendency to be self-centered and to look down on mundanes, only saving them out of duty.

Clary is ready to defend mundanes and innocents because she cares about them, and she wants to. She can’t see the differences that the Shadowhunters see because she wasn’t raised with their beliefs. Clary’s ability to stand up for what she believes in, among both her friends and enemies makes her a total boss babe in our book.

  • I like Clary for many reasons but most because she knows her own mind and is not afraid to stand up for it and what she believes in.

  • Clary is a great role model. Not for how perfect she is but how hard she works to improve. She also works to understand what the other characters point of view were. The episode about the murders of shadowhunters and when DNA collection was started. Clary not only listened to Simon’s reason for not providing a sample but then championed it.

    Kat is a brilliant actress but also seems to be a beautiful person. That and she’s a knitter so she has to be great.

  • Kat is an awesome person she played Clary like no one else could. She put her own spin to that character. Clary is a true warrior and life has been hard and seeing Clary since season one walking into the shadow world and just going with it and learning, fighting, and accepting it. Has been an inspiration about life, new beginnings, changes, and growing. And how love is the key and main motivation in life and that it makes us strong and we can use it to our advantage and it doesn’t make us weaker on the contrary makes us stronger. To not let others define you that only you can define yourself and that family is an important asset to have by your side blood related and non blood related. The type of person that is loving and just doesn’t give up hope and will keep on fighting until the very end. Willing to hear both sides of the story and give her emotional and logical view on things. Powerful, determine, smart, badass, and selfless person. Clary is a true inspiration and that it is ok to not be perfect, to make mistakes and be your true self. Everything I just said about Clary goes stright to Kat as well she made all this for her character. Kat was the best choice for this roll because she is the type of person that can change your life in a good way to let you see that if the sun is shinin things can’t be that bad to always look at the brighter things in life. Just how every Monday she puts a motivational quote . Kat is the sweetest person and it would be an honor to meet her in person.
