It’s time for our next exclusive Shadowhunters interview, featuring Matthew Daddario, soon to be known as Alec Lightwood. Yes, Shadowhunter/archer extraordinaire, and one half of epic pairing “Malec.”
Be sure to watch the full video below for our conversation about:
- Shadowhunter footwear.
- First auditioning for the film, and then reading for Jace and then Alec for the TV series.
- Where he was when he found out he got the role.
- Bonding with his castmates through their training, and how much time they spend preparing for their performances.
- How archery has become like second nature, and who would win in a showdown between him, Katniss Everdeen, Hawkeye, or Green Arrow.
- The “Malec” relationship on the series, how it’s introduced in this series, and assurances that it’s an important part of the show.
- How Clary’s arrival on the scene ruins everything in Alec’s world.
- The relationship between Alec and his sister, Isabelle.
Only two more interviews remain from our Shadowhunters set visit. Look out for those before tomorrow night’s series premiere at 9/8c on Freeform! And if you’re not in the US, you can watch Shadowhunters on Netflix this Wednesday.
