Q: What’s your favorite thing about filming Shadowhunters? Also hello from Germany.
NCD: Hi Germany! The People. The Characters. The Clothes. In that order.
Q: What are the most challenging parts of playing Maryse?
NCD: Maryse made choices she regrets. Hurt her children. She is very alone. It’s painful to channel that sometimes but I Love her.

NCD: The Hallway into the Institute! My first scene ever was there and we gather on the benches between scenes for hang time!

Q: When did you realize that you want to be an actress and what inspires you?
NCD: I ALWAYS wanted to Act! I’m inspired by the work and commitment of my fellow Actors and by people’s stories. Sharing Stories
Q: If your character was not a shadowhunter, what do you think Maryse would like to be? A vampire, warlock…?
NCD: A Warlock. (Don’t tell Harry Shum Jr) Maryse wants to protect people & defeat evil. Warlocks can heal. They are very powerful.

NCD: I Love that she is a total Hardass AND a Loving Mama who genuinely wants to help the Shadow World. That’s very real to me.

NCD: I’m a Singer! And I play Guitar! And I do a lot of Accents!
Q: Do you prefer shooting during the day or at night?
