Shadowhunters Actor Isaiah Mustafa Marries Publicist He Met at WonderCon
On March 25, 2016, the cast of Shadowhunters took on WonderCon in Los Angeles. Little did one of the series’ leading men know that that would be the very day he met his future wife.
Over Memorial Day Weekend, Isaiah Mustafa, who plays Luke Garroway on the Freeform drama, married his love, Lisa Mitchell, whom he met two years ago at the comic-book convention. He was there to promote the show, based on Cassie Clare‘s Mortal Instruments book franchise, and she was there because she was a publicist for Warner Bros, so they were both able to hang out in the green room backstage. And it was love at first sight.
“I feel like right away when I met him, it was different,” the 36-year-old bride told PEOPLE. “The connection was — I always say magnetic, but it was. Immediately, I was so drawn to him.”
“I just never met someone who was so well put together as far as the way she spoke and carried herself. That it blew me away,” the 44-year-old actor known as the horse-riding Old Spice guy added. “I had to know her more.”
The two got engaged nine months after they first met, in December 2016. They tied the knot a year and a half after that, on Sunday, May 27, 2018, with Isaiah’s Shadowhunters co-stars, Katherine McNamara, Harry Shum Jr., Alberto Rosende and Emeraude Toubia all in attendance.
Congrats to the happy couple!
