Janel Parrish and Harry Shum, Jr. hang their wishes on the wishing tree during the 2016 Lunar New Year Celebration event held at Beverly Center on Thursday night (February 4) in Los Angeles.
The two Freeform stars kicked off the annual event, which celebrates the Year of the Monkey and hung up their traditional decorative red envelopes containing their own personal wishes for the year to come on the sparkling tree.
Janel hung a wish for “more balance in her life” and Harry hung one for “health and prosperity for his family.”

The Shadowhunters star opened up to the outlet about the show, his character Magnus Bane, and where he got his start. Check it:
On his first job: I was a cashier at my parents hardware store at 8 years-old.
On “The Mortal Instruments” book series: I never read the books before being casted. Now I’m kind of mad at myself for not getting into them earlier. It’s a fascinating book series!
On his character: Magnus Bane is the immortal High Warlock of Brooklyn. He’s half demon and half mundane (human) that possesses the skill to conjure warlock magic. I haven’t had a chance to watch the film but I drew a lot from the books sprinkled with my own interpretation.
“From the get-go, we were running,” Matthew shared. “The second that we booked this, there was already a following and that following was so enthusiastic. So, we hit the ground running immediately. It sounds cliche, but it’s really what’s happened. It’s been a spring from start to finish. I don’t know, maybe I should have stopped to maybe look around along the way.”

“It’s a very simple reason: You can’t tell a saga from the point of view of just one person,” Ed shared on the panel. :You have to tell all the pieces of the saga and so all these great shows that we so admire like Game of Thrones and all that, you have many places to go with the story so that you can tell all the strands of the saga. Its actually a pretty complex world, Mortal Instruments, which makes it so rich and which is why we’re so excited about it.”
