Now, his latest role has transported him into the fantasy realm with Freeform’s novel-inspired series, Shadowhunters. Though failing to find a real life magical creature to feed him some inspiration, the 33-year old read up on the history of his warlock character, Magnus Bane, in order to be up-to-speed while still giving it a little Shum Jr. flare. “He’s an immortal half demon/half human, and can conjure up bad-ass magic with a snap of his fingers,” he said of his Shadowhunters character. “What I really love about him is how his integrity has stayed intact for centuries. He has the power to be careless since he is immortal but chooses compassion over others while still maintaining his dark side.”
Ooh, Harry is so adorkable! I really love what’s bringing to the role of Magnus, and I can’t wait to see he does in season 2!
