Harry Shum Jr Joins 'Shadowhunters' Cast as Magnus Bane!

Harry Shum Jr. (Glee!)has been added to ABC Family's Shadowhunters cast as Magnus Bane!
Shadowhunters is based on the best-selling series by Cassandra Clare, The Mortal Instruments. Shum Jr. will play the role as the high warlock of Brooklyn. Bane's style can be described as eccentric and while his personality is fierce, charming, and keeps his cards close to his chest. Even though he looks like he is only in his 20s, he is actually hundreds of years old – which makes him wiser and wary of others.

Shadowhunters is produced by Constantin Film and executive produced by Ed Decter and McG. McG will also direct the first episode. The network has previously announced series regulars Katherine McNamara as ‘Clary Fray,’ Dominic Sherwood as ‘Jace Wayland,’ Alberto Rosende as ‘Simon,’ Emeraude Toubia as ‘Isabelle Lightwood,’ Matthew Daddario as ‘Alec Lightwood’ and Isaiah Mustafa as ‘Luke Garroway.’ Alan Van Sprang was announced earlier this afternoon as a recurring guest star in the role of ‘Valentine.’ 

Do you guys see the resemblance?!? He is perfect for the role! Congrats Harry! Hopefully we see some of your amazing dance moves on the show!

Alan Van Sprang (Reign, The Tudors) joined ABC Family's Shadowhunters cast!

Alan Van Sprang has been casted as the villain we all love to hate from Cassandra Clare's The Mortal Instruments series, Valentine Morgenstern. 

Valentine is described as a highly intellectual, charming but devious Shadowhunter. He has an immense amount of power and will kill anyone who gets in his way. 

Check out the tweet Van Sprang posted, once word got out: 
Other cast members include Dominic Sherwood (as Jace Wayland), Katherine McNamara (as Clarissa Fray), Alberto Rosende (as Simon Lewis), Emeraude Toubia (as Isabelle Lightwood), Matthew Daddario (as Alec Lightwood), and Isaiah Mustafa (as Luke Garroway).

Congrats Mr. Van Sprang! You are PERFECT for the role!
