Ariana Williams is currently starring in Freeform’s supernatural-hit Shadowhunters. She is a very young actress but her future is definitely bright. I had the opportunity to talk with Ariana and ask her some questions about herself and what it is like portraying one of the fandoms favorite young warlocks: Madzie!
We first meet Madzie in “Dust and Shadows” when Clary Fairchild and Alec Lightwood go to warlock’s home to help bring Clary’s mother back to life using black magic. Throughout season 2 Madzie made appearances here and there after she was abducted by Valentine Morgenstern, the main antagonist in the show. Madzie is immortal, powerful, and magical. Her warlock mark grants her the ability to suck the oxygen in the room by using the gills on the side of her neck as if they were some type of vacuum.
Q: How did you feel when you were casted as Madzie in Shadowhunters?
A: I was very happy to be selected and I love the clothes that I get to wear.
Q: If Madzie was not a warlock, what other Downworlder would you like to play?
A: I would like to be a Seelie. The Seelie Queen.
Q: What is your favorite thing about working on Shadowhunters?
A: My favorite things are wardrobe, taking pictures in my wardrobe, and of course my magic!
Q: Who is the funniest cast member on set?
A: Dom makes me laugh when we are together.
Q: What was your favorite scene to film in season 2?
A: My favorite scene in season 2 is in the cafe with Alan and Dom when I freeze the hot chocolate into a popsicle.

Q: What is your favorite color?

Q: What is your favorite song at the moment?
A: Havana by Camila Cabello

A: My favorite thing to do in school is draw beautiful pictures.
Q: Who is your role model?
A: My mom.
Q: What is your favorite thing about being an actress?
A: I love wearing different clothes and dressing up.
Lastly, I asked her if she could describe the upcoming season of Shadowhunters in one word and she replied with “Season 3 has sparkles and is fun.”

This is definitely not the last time we will be hearing from Ariana and seeing her on our TV screens. Season 2 left us off with Madzie in the care of Catarina Loss, a warlock nurse who is very good friends with the High Warlock of Brooklyn, Magnus Bane. Many fans adore Madzie and what she brings to the show, myself included. Madzie is a powerhouse and will play a key part in the upcoming season of Shadowhunters.
Thank you again Ariana for allowing me to ask you these questions! Good luck with Shadowhunters and your exciting future ahead. You can follow Ariana on twitter @actress_ariana and instagram @actress_ariana4
