Ready or not, here he comes!
TVLine broke the news about Tudor’s casting back in January, revealing that the show’s version of Sebastian will be slightly different from the one fans know from the books. For starters, unlike in the books, he does not hail from the Shadowhunters’ Paris Institute.
“When he taped, he had an American accent, which was really interesting,” executive producer Todd Slavkin told TVLine. “But when we saw his reel, saw him on Game of Thrones and Humans, then looked at our take on the character, we were like, ‘Oh, you’re from London. You’re from the London Institute. Use your British accent.’ And it works so well.”
Other highlights from the new promo include: lots of romantic tension between Clary, Simon and Jace; a gnarly shot of Jace getting answers from Valentine by whatever means necessary; and, of course, Magnus getting his drink on.
