BYOU Magazine would like to share a BIG congratulations to Kat McNamara for her starring role as Clary Fray on the new show Shadowhunters! BYOU Magazine readers know Kat from her regular “Kat’s Korner” advice column she writes for us exclusively in each issue of BYOU Magazine, and from our 2013 cover story on her (see below). Kat is a very talented actress who appeared regularity on Disney Channel shows and in roles in many movies, including the anti-bullying movie Contest (click here to see video of her singing “Chatter” theme song). Now Kat stars as Clary Fray in the hit show Shadowhunters network TV show…you go girl!
ABOUT SHADOWHUNTERS: Based on the bestselling young adult fantasy book series The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare, Shadowhunters follows Clary Fray (Kat McNamara), who finds out on her birthday that she is not who she thinks she is, but rather comes from a long line of Shadowhunters – human-angel hybrids who hunt down demons. Thrown into the world of demon hunting after her mother is kidnapped, Clary must rely on the mysterious Jace and his fellow Shadowhunters, Isabelle and Alec, to navigate this new dark world. With her best friend Simon in tow, Clary looks for answers that could help her find her mother.
KAT’S RELATIONSHIP WITH BYOU MAGAZINE: BYOU Magazine has a close relationship with Kat McNamara. We originally worked with her a few years ago when she was a panelist on a BYOU Magazine Teen Celebrity Empowerment Panel presented at the California Women’s Conference. Our founder/publisher Debra Gano was so impressed with Kat as an inspiring role model that she immediately offered Kat a cover story for the next upcoming issue (Kat appeared on the cover of our February-March 2013 “Love You!” issue, which also featured an exclusive interview with Kat). Later that year, Kat was a celebrity panelist on two BYOU Magazine Teen Celebrity Empowerment Panels featured at the Girl Scouts Girltopia: The World of Girl event, the country’s largest expo for girls, to share self-esteem tips and sign autographs for thousands of excited Girl Scouts.
Since then, Kat writes a regular BYOU Magazine column called Kat’s Korner. Kat is big fan of inspiring quotes, so in each issue BYOU Mag, she features a favorite quote and offers empowering advice and self-esteem tips on the same theme. We’re thrilled to be able to share Kat’s inspiring, empowering advice with our readers in every issue. (Look for Kat’s newest column in the New Year New YOU issue of BYOU Magazine on newsstands now!
