Is it time for Magnus and Alec to take the next step in their spellbinding relationship?
In the next all-new episode of Shadowhunters, Alec confesses the he spends “almost every night” at Magnus’ place and he thinks the time is right for the couple to move in together — and only ET has your sneak peek of the swoon-worthy moment!
To make matters even more magical, we called up Shadowhunters star Harry Shum Jr. and the actor is spilling exclusive secrets about Malec’s “special” bond. Plus, read on to discover the behind-the-scenes details that Shum and Matthew Daddario like to add to their scenes in order to deepen Magnus and Alec’s onscreen chemistry.
ET: We can practically already hear the Malec fans’ screams of delight while watching our exclusive sneak peek clip! First off, how are you feeling about where Magnus and Alec are as a couple this season?
Harry Shum Jr.: Well I think they’ve gone through a lot. In the real world, it’s really only been a short period of time — I think about eight weeks or something like that — that they’ve actually been together. So it’s a whirlwind of being swept up and being really into each other, yet having your world in danger as well, so you kind of get closer in that sense. So I think for the next step, since they see each other all the time and instead of going back and forth, why not be in the same place and move in? So I think the fans will really enjoy that and the progression of that.
When you read in the script that Alec comes to Magnus and suggests that they move in together, what was your initial reaction?
I always err on the side of caution whenever that question gets brought up [Laughs] because when you don’t know a lot of things about someone, that can always cause some confusion in the beginning part [of a relationship]. Like, “I thought that you would like this or that,” so I don’t know. I think it’ll be interesting to see it unfold — especially with these characters. I think Magnus, who is set in his particular ways, is very different than Alex, so I think that’s going to be the fun in seeing what happens.
