Harry Shum Jr. Joins ABC’s ‘Shadowhunters’



Harry Shum Jr. has danced his way into many of our hearts ever since he entered show business– from his part as the funky footed Elliot Hoo in The LXD: The Legion of Extraordinary Dancers to his memorable role as Mike Chang in Glee. Since concluding his run with Glee, we wondered what’s next for the mega-talent? Well, you can expect to see Shum on the big screen this summer, because Shum has been working on his role as Tiefang in the Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon sequel — Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: The Green Legend — which is expected to be released August 30th!

But even bigger things are in store for Shum! It looks like he’s swapping his dancing shoes for some glittered eyeliner as he joins the cast of Shadowhunters as the high and mighty warlock, Magnus Bane.



ABC’s Shadowhunters TV series is based off the novel series The Shadowhunter Chronicles by Cassandra Clare. The story follows the heroic journey of a group of Shadowhunters who fight off demons called Downworlders. Along the way they are aided by the High Warlock of Brooklyn, Magnus Bane. Even though the TV adaptation won’t feature the original cast from movie adaptation The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, and as much as we looooveee Godfrey Gao, we’re excited to see what Shum has to offer.

Shadowhunters will start filming for the series on May 25th in Toronto.
