One of the most important castings in the Shadowhunters fandom has got to be Magnus. Not only is he is a major character in both The Mortal Instruments and The Infernal Devices, he is one of the most loved characters in YA fiction.
So we are very happy to announce Harry Shum Jr. will be playing Magnus Bane in the TV show Shadowhunters based on Cassandra Clares books The Mortal Instruments.
You may recognise Harry from Glee and Step Up.
He is a great addition to the Shadowhunters cast!
This is what ABC Family had to say about Magnus’s character:
Magnus Bane is the high warlock of Brooklyn. With eccentric style, he’s fierce, cunning and keeps his cards close to his chest. Though he looks like he’s in his 20s, he’s hundreds of years old – which makes him wiser and wary of others.
Even Cassandra Clare herself mention Harry for Magnus 3 years ago:
“Harry Shum, Jr. is really working the Magnus.”
