Valentine and Magnus: A Maybe and A Yes

Hello readers! So as you know, Shadowhunters has been casting for their TV Show (which I’m extremely excited about) and yesterday, we got the amazing news that Valentine and Magnus had been cast. The actors are…..drumroll please….Alan Van Sprang and Harry Shum Jr respectively. Check them out below:


So what are the reactions/thoughts to these castings? Take a look”

Thoughts on Alan:

Other than how he’s built and maybe the face, he doesn’t feel like he should be Valentine and I think that’s because of three things:

  1. He is practically bald….(where is his blonde hair???)
  2. The pic that was first shown to me of Alan was in a business suit and that threw me off big time (hello! (male) Shadowhunters usually = shadowhunter gear)
  3. I liked Jonathan Rhys Meyers as Valentine a lot! I thought he was practically perfect for the role….except for the crazy and the black hair. Other than that, loved him! It’s going to take a bit to be honest.

Now for whats he played in: Reign, The Tudors, King etc…None that I know of.

I know it’s going to take me a bit for Alan to sink in as Valentine (just like Isaiah for Luke) but I know it’ll happen. I mean Jamie Campbell Bower was not Jace when I first saw him cast but then I thought he was perf. (Now I also think Dominic is an awesome Jace!).

Thoughts on Harry:

First thought: aww this isn’t Adam Lambert. Second thought, this guy could def be Magnus. He has the spiky hair, the tallish body (he’s Asian!) sooo I think we’re good looks-wise here. Now acting wise, I’m also not sure of how good he is, but he must be good to have been picked for the show.

I know he was in Glee (a lot of people fangirled over that on Twitter) and I’m looking and he was also in: Step Up 2, Step Up 3D and some other things. Haven’t watched any of his work but he seems like he’ll be good so fingers crossed everyone!

So I’m excited to see who Jocelyn is (and Church and Chairman Meow) and then we’ll pretty much be done with the main cast. YAY! I’m sooo excited for this! I can’t wait to see the characters on screen! Anyway, what do you guys think about the actors? What were your reactions/thoughts? Tell me below in the comments section! Thanks, Have a great day/night and tata for now!
