Harry Shum Jr. was never considered for the role of Valentine on Shadowhunters, but Monday’s episode (Freeform, 8/7c) does make for a pretty solid audition tape.

Following last week‘s 11th-hour switcheroo, Magnus and Valentine are now inhabiting each other’s bodies, creating a multi-layer challenge for the characters — as well as the actors.

“He’s a hard one to crack,” Shum tells TVLine of Valentine’s portrayer Alan Van Sprang. “He has a lot of nuances, all these little movements and smiles. I just tried to capture that without being too blatant or hokey about it, since [Valentine] is trying to hide those characteristics, trying to fool people as much as he can.”

Of course, there’s one thing Azazel didn’t consider when putting Valentine in Magnus’ body: “Valentine doesn’t really know Magnus that well, other than him being a ‘filthy warlock,’ as he says,” explains Shum. “He knows he’s a little flamboyant, but he doesn’t know much about his personal life,” including that Alec is his boyfriend. As Shum points out, it’s much harder to fool “someone he’s been intimate with.”

Despite being kept apart for most of the hour — “Valentine” remains in Shadowhunter custody, while “Magnus” roams freely about the city — the two do share a scene together, which Shum calls “really fun” for a number of reasons.

“I’ve never really gotten to act with [Van Sprang] before, so to do it this way for the first time — playing each other — made it even more interesting,” Shum says. “He’s such a great actor, and it was so cool to see what he did with it, seeing how he lifted those little hand movements and other things I’ve contributed to the character.”

And although it’ll probably end up on the cutting room floor, Shum is really hoping that his ad-libbed line at least makes it to the Season 2 blooper reel: “We looked at each other in this very serious moment, and I told him, ‘Magnus, you’ve never looked better.’”

If there’s one person’s head we would never want to get inside of, it’s probably Valentine Morgenstern (Alan Van Sprang), but that’s exactly what Harry Shum Jr. had to do for this week’s episode of Shadowhunters.

Thanks to an unfortunate run-in with a higher demon, Magnus (Harry Shum Jr.) has found himself trapped in Valentine’s body, and thus imprisoned in the Institute, while Valentine takes his warlock body for a joy ride. TVGuide.com spoke to Shum Jr. about what it was like to play such a twisted character as well as the old memories that this torturous situation (seriously — torturous) will bring to the surface for Magnus.

How did you even start getting into the headspace to play Valentine playing Magnus?
Harry Shum Jr.: Luckily, we’ve had a season and a half to really, for me, find out who Valentine really is and what his motivation really is and to see him interact with different characters. I think tapes are the first thing you can kind of look at. After putting that layer on, it’s really figuring out what situation he’s being put in, in this particular episode.

Outside of getting the mannerisms and kind of becoming him and how he’s very manipulative… He is trying to figure out how Magnus actually acts. He’s this thing [Valentine] actually hates and despises, but also he has to somewhat find his essence as well trying to throw people off, so he can move on to his next agenda, which is to get out of it.

To be real though, Magnus got the worse end of that stick, didn’t he?
Shum Jr.: For sure. We can talk about Valentine – his worst nightmare is being in a warlock’s body, but I think Magnus’ worst nightmare is being locked up in a prison and nobody believes – especially the love of his life – believes that he is him. I think it’s his worst nightmare. And with that, what they do to him, that puts an extra layer on top of his worst nightmare, which definitely affects him over time.

Outside of the torture and people not believing him and bringing up old, traumatic memories, someone is going to be so fragile after that. Sometimes having a traumatic experience like that, almost no one can help. The only friend that you have is time, and the thing that you can get it giving you time and space or the understanding that this is going to be a long process to get back to his old self. That’s the sad part of it all. Magnus isn’t even thinking about revenge at that point, he’s just trying to get himself level-headed and back into a mental state that’s somewhat healthy.

Will we get to see more of Magnus’ past this season?
Shum Jr.: Yeah, I think the writers are really trying to explore that. That is their goal because why wouldn’t you? You have this character that is so rich in history, and a lot of his past is something that will affect the future. When you bring that up, he has to navigate it in a different way. For the writers, I think that’s really fun as well as for me as an actor. I hope that the audiences really enjoy that ride as well because he is a character that has gone through a lot, and for people to see how he approaches it and how he handles it, I think is going to be a very interesting ride.

Do you think Magnus will pull away from the Institute (and Alec) after going through this ordeal?
Shum Jr.: What I’ve always known of Magnus is that he’s very strong. He’s a strong character. I don’t think anything or anybody can hold him down. It can stop him for the time being, temporarily.

Obviously he wants to lean on Alec (Matthew Daddario), but also Alec has a lot on his plate outside of trying to help Magnus. He still has to be able to deal with getting Valentine and getting the Mortal Cup and all that, especially dealing with his family as well. So there’s a lot for him to deal with outside of just Magnus. Magnus is a big part of his world, but he’s not the only thing that kind of keeps him going because he still has his whole other life that he has to pay attention to. It’s going to be a difficult situation, and I hope they make it out of it, but they won’t be unscathed unfortunately.

If you could chose two other characters to get the body swap treatment who would they be? Which actors would you want to see do what you and Alan Van Sprang got to do?
Shum Jr.: I honestly think, to play around, the two Parabatais [Jace and Alec] would be hilarious. They, themselves, would be so fun to watch. They’ve been put in situations where they have to go against each other even though they know that they love each other and they’re brothers in that sense… I think them switching bodies would be really interesting to watch. And I’m sure [Dominic Sherwood] and [Matthew Daddario] would pull some pranks along the way as well.

Can you tease anything about Sarah Hyland’s guest star role this season?
Shum Jr.: She will be the new Magnus. She will be taking over my duties as Magnus, and I will just be on the sidelines telling her exactly what to do — no I’m just kidding. I can’t really tell you what it is, but Sarah is an awesome actress, and it’s so good to have her energy on our show. I think people will be impressed with what she’s going to bring to the table.

Shadowhunters has finally returned for the second half of its second season, and there’s twice as much angel-blood, greater demons and Downworld drama as ever. We’ve also got some mysteries to solve like how Jace (Dominic Sherwood) can activate runes without a stele, and just who has that Angel Sword.

Putting those mysteries aside though, we all know the most exciting question we want answered: “What’s next for Malec now that they’ve said those three little words to each other?”

Matthew Daddario and Harry Shum Jr. have teased a deeper look at the Malec relationship in 2B into who they are, what they like, and whether that affects their love for one another. With a past as long as Magnus’, there’s definitely a lot of opportunities to find skeletons in the closet, that’s for sure.

“We get to explore a number of different things that happen when relationships become sort of solidified,” Daddario says. “Of course there’s going to be a little bit of drama, but is it good drama or bad drama?”

Before they sort through any of that drama, however, they should probably make sure Magnus is actually Magnus. Something tells us this relationship won’t run very smoothly with Azazel at the wheel in Magnus’ mind.

Harry Shum Jr. (Charlie Wu)
Harry Shum Jr. was a Glee breakout, playing the (admittedly cool) dancer Mike Chang. After the show’s end, he appeared in 2016’s Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny and stars on Freeform’s Shadowhunters: The Mortal Instruments. Shum will reportedly play a tech billionaire named Charlie Wu. Well before CRA’s plot unfolds, the ultra-glamorous Astrid was engaged to Wu. Charlie had wealth, but he’s wasn’t bred from an old-money legacy like Astrid’s parents would’ve preferred. The engagement dissolved, and Astrid moved on with her current husband, Michael. Does Charlie still harbor secret feelings for Astrid? With Astrid’s suspicions about her husband’s infidelity, maybe it’s high time they met again, Before Sunset style.
