the best thing shadowhunters did was cast harry shum jr as magnus bane, to choose someone with professional experience as a dancer to play the part of a man who is known for his elegance. harry brings such a level of class to magnus, he really does walk around the room as though he owns it, the way he manages his magic is fluid and graceful. everything about magnus bane is highlighted because of the dedication harry brings to it, physically, emotionally, mentally. all of it. he gives magnus bane the aesthetic ive always wanted, and the emotions i never thought i would be able to see with magnus.
