Harry Shum Jr, Shadowhunters

The series premiere of Shadowhunters is almost here, and we are finally releasing our exclusive interviews with the cast from our visit to their Toronto set last summer!

First up is Harry Shum Jr. We chatted with him on the Jade Wolf set about playing Magnus Bane, High Warlock of Brooklyn. In the video below, we touched on:

  • his reaction to landing this role.
  • how Magnus fits into the Shadowhunter world.
  • what inspired Magnus Bane’s glam look.
  • the relationships between Magnus and the other characters.


Shadowhunters premieres in the US on Tuesday, January 12 at 9/8c on Freeform (ABC Family’s new name). International fans, including Canada, will be able to watch the next day on Netflix.

More cast interviews are coming soon!
