He has appeared in the show’s three most recent seasons, starting in 2016. In 2010’s “The Cut,” he made his small-screen debut in a recurring part as Jack Simmons. Since making his screen debut in 2012 with a minor role in “Not Fade Away,” he has gone on to feature in the thriller “Billionaire Ransom” with Ed Westwick and Jeremy Sumpter and is set to appear in the horror-thriller romance movie “The Other,” which also stars Drea de Matteo and Cary Elwes. He made an appearance in the Taylor Swift song “Style” music video, which was helmed by Kyle Newman, in February 2015.

Early Youth & Life

Dominic Anthony “Dom” Sherwood was born in Tunbridge Wells, Kent, England, on February 6, 1990. He has a sibling and four brothers. He has sectoral heterochromia, a disease that causes the iris, the colored portion of the eye, to change colors. He has two different-colored eyes as a consequence of the condition, one blue and one that is half-blue and half-brown. He completed his secondary schooling at Maidstone’s Oakwood Park Grammar School.

He studied acting and theater while he was in Maidstone and then Sevenoaks. After finishing his studies, he embarked on a six-month global tour, working initially in Kenya before moving on to other nations. When he got back, he relocated to England. He and his pals started the band “Tamarin Sky” in 2008 when he was 18 years old.

Become a Hero

Following his return from a six-month tour overseas, Dominic Sherwood settled in London and started acting in the regional theatre scene. A scouting company ultimately signed him, and they set up his opportunities in the ensuing years for TV and film. His first on-screen performance was in 2010’s third season of the teen drama series “The Cut,” playing Jack Simmons.

Then he was cast as a waiter called Tom in the “Cherylistic” episode of the kid’s show “Sadie J.” (2011). He made his film debut the following year in “Not Fade Away” in a supporting part as a young Mick Jagger. His breakout performance as Christian Ozera in the parody horror movie “Vampire Academy” occurred in 2014. After being chosen for the early 2015 season of the fantasy drama series “Shadowhunters,” he gained notoriety.

Disputes and scandals

After being overheard in the backdrop of a Facebook Live greeting his “Shadowhunters” co-star Matthew Daddario with a gay slur, Dominic Sherwood became embroiled in controversy in November 2017. In the television series “Shadowhunters,” Daddario, who was presenting the live stream on his Facebook page, portrays a gay character.

Daddario interrupted the live feed and instantly stopped Sherwood, but the damage had already been done because his viewers had already heard it. Sherwood later posted three videos on his Instagram profile expressing his regret to his supporters and the viewers of the show after realizing the gravity of the situation. He made it clear that he wasn’t attempting to make excuses and took complete responsibility for his earlier “disgusting and abhorrent” behavior.

Additionally, he said that he was “truly, truly sorry” for using one of the “problematic phrases” that are frequently used inadvertently and pledged to work harder in the future to promote love. Many social media users came to his defense by pointing out that he was genuine in his apology and deserved a chance to learn, even though some users were still unconvinced and wanted him taken off the show.

Dominic Sherwood’s Relationships

After meeting Sarah Hyland, who played his co-star in the 2014 film “Vampire Academy,” on the set, Dominic Sherwood started dating her. The previously low-key pair made their relationship official in January 2015 after the paparazzi caught them making no effort to conceal their intimacy while publicly displaying affection.

They each revealed their matching arrow tattoos to their individual social media fans the following month. However, tabloids reported their breakup in 2017, and shortly after, Hyland started dating ‘The Bachelor’ star Wells Adams. In February 2018, Sherwood began dating the British and South African model Niamh Adkins.
