We’ve known Hamilton’s Javier Muñoz was joining Freeform’s Shadowhunters’ third season since October’s New York Comic Con video announcement, but we’re now seeing an up-close and personal pic of his warlock, Lorenzo Rey, facing off with rival Magnus Bane (Harry Shum Jr.).
In the video to fans of the show, Muñoz said of his casting and The Mortal Instruments adaptation that, “You know I’m a fan of the show, I’m a fan of this genre. I’m already in love with this character and I can’t wait for you to meet him.”
This behind-the-scenes picture, which you can see below from the Shadowhunters Instagram, captures just a hint of the tension (sexual and otherwise) between the magic-users.
The tension comes as Magnus and Alec Lightwood (Matthew Daddario) continue their ‘Malec’ relationship into season three, with the impact of Muñoz’s devious-looking Lorenzo unknown until Shadowhunters returns to Freeform on April 3.
