Shadowhunters' Harry Shum Jr. Says #Malec Still Have Trust Issues (Interview)

Harry Shum Jr. is dishing on all things Shadowhunters with JJJ.

We recently caught up with him about that crazy Magnus/Valentine body swap last week.

Of course, we also had to throw in a question about #Malec for good measure.

Shadowhunters airs Mondays at 8/7c on Freeform.

JJJ: How did you prepare to take on Valentine’s personality?

Harry Shum Jr.: Lots of videos and hiding in Alan’s room taking notes tracking all his movements.

JJJ: Did you have a sore throat by the end of filming? Did you have to treat your throat tenderly/specially?

HSJ: Went through 5 bottles of honey and pounds of ginger for the duration of the shoot.

JJJ: Did you run your version of Valentine by Alan and did he correct anything? Or vice-versa?

HSJ: We had a meeting with the director (Billie Woodruff) before we started the episode to capture the tone but we trusted each other to take good care of our characters.

Matthew Daddario Talks About The Malec ‘Shadowhunters’ Consent Debate

Matthew Daddario Talks About The Malec ‘Shadowhunters’ Consent Debate

Matthew Daddario plays one of our favorite characters on television right now – Shadowhunters’ Alec Lightwood.

The actor talked with Out magazine about how playing the gay character helped him grow.

“Alec is the best,” he admits. “He cares about others more than himself, and he’s learned how to care for himself…but he’s young.”

Matthew also talked about the consent debate with Magnus and Alec, which sparked on Twitter after in one episode, Alec pushes Magnus into a room before they finally consummate their relationship.

“People read into things and are sometimes very capable of understanding what the writers were thinking,” he says. “Other times, they don’t quite get it right. But it’s largely been positive.”

Tune into a new Shadowhunters on Monday on Freeform.

Matthew Daddario & Harry Shum, Jr. Tease What's Ahead of Malec on 'Shadowhunters'

Matthew Daddario & Harry Shum, Jr. Tease What's Ahead of Malec on 'Shadowhunters'

Malec is obviously everyone’s favorite ship on Shadowhunters and stars Matthew Daddario and Harry Shum, Jr. say that the upcoming season 2B is going to be the best of them.

“The Malec relationship is on a constant upward trend I think, and I believe that’s how it should be,” Matthew shared in a new interview.

He adds, “That doesn’t mean necessarily that everything’s going to be perfect all the time because you need to grow, and to grow you need these kind of little errors so you guys can adapt and learn how to work with each other, and I think that we’re going to see some of that in the second half of the season.”

“I think that what we all wanted to see was them sharing experiences together,” Harry says, “and those experiences are what’s going to make them stronger.”

What you’re going to see in the upcoming episodes is Malec’s relationship being as realistic as possible.

“We’re going to see a lot more of that and them getting to do more activities together that would cause some riff in one side or the other being kind of pissed off at each other, but there [are] going to be some great, delightful moments as well,” Harry added.

“I know the fans don’t want them to have any hurtful moments at all, but the reality is, that’s life. So yeah, they’re going to have to get through that.”

Shadowhunters returns on Monday, June 5th on Freeform.

More Malec Romance Coming to 'Shadowhunters'

More Malec Romance Coming to 'Shadowhunters'

There are more romantic moments between Magnus (Harry Shum Jr.) and Alec (Matthew Daddario) coming up on Shadowhunters.

Harry is assuring fans that #Malec will go through some ups and downs, but you’ll see some sweet romance too.

“I think their relationship is growing stronger and when it grows stronger, you’re also going to have different mindsets on how things are dealt with that they need to figure out just like any relationship,” Harry told TVInsider.com. “I think it’s just cool that the fact that they’re acknowledging they’re boyfriends and the fact that Alec came to Magnus and was like,’“Look, this, what we have right here, it’s not going anywhere,’ and for someone to say that, I think that’s a big deal in any relationship.”

Harry added, “Oh, definitely you’ll see romantic moments. One thing I’ll say to that is that the cast, the writers, and the producers, we all care about all the relationships and we all always champion the idea of showing the progression of the relationships. Specifically for Malec, and I can speak for Matt, we always try to play it as real as possible. There will be a lot more romantic moments coming up while trying to battle Valentine and hopefully not getting killed in the process!”

Shadowhunters airs Mondays @ 8PM on Freeform.
