Shadowhunters @ Comic-Con: First Look at Sarah Hyland as Seelie Queen

The next time Shadowhunters fans cross paths with the Seelie Queen — specifically on the Freeform drama’s Aug. 7 and Aug. 14 episodes — she’s going to look a little different than you remember.

During the show’s San Diego Comic-Con panel on Thursday, it was announced that Modern Family star Sarah Hyland will play a new, more adult iteration of the maniacal monarch we met just a few weeks ago.

The cast even came equipped with a clip of Hyland (and her fancy fairy accent!) in action. In the 2-minute sneak peek, Simon expresses his concerns about an impending war — one the queen has no intention of stopping. In fact, it’s exactly what she wants.

Additionally, it was announced Thursday that Alisha Wainwright (aka Maia Roberts) has been promoted to a series regular for the series’ upcoming third season. (In other news, can you believe we’re already talking about Season 3? Where did the time go?)
