The Shadowhunters Tuesday takeovers in a nutshell!

The Shadowhunters Tuesday takeovers in a nutshell!

After months of radio silence and little to no behind the scenes material, the Shadowhunters Tuesday Takeovers have returned. And while the fandom couldn’t be happier about that, not everyone can keep up with what happens during the takeovers at all times. But don’t worry if you can’t - SDN got you covered.

Starting this week, we will keep track of the takeovers and keep an eye out for any relevant season three information and put it into this article. The article will be updated after each takeover, so make sure to stop by every now and then in order to not miss anything.

#EmeraudeTakeover

September 26th, 2017: #EmeraudeTakeover
The first one to take over the Shadowhunters’ social media accounts was Emeraude Toubia - who plays Isabelle Lightwood. While filming in downtown Toronto, Emeraude took some time off her lunch break to talk to the fans via Facebook live chat.
Here is what she revealed about season three:

Plenty of Malec
Isabelle will have a lot of scenes with both Alec and Magnus. While the Lightwood siblings getting screen time together might not be a big surprise, we certainly loved that Izzy and Magnus are going to get more bonding time. Alec and Magnus are going to have a lot of scenes as well, according to Emeraude “they are going to be everywhere”. We can’t say we have a problem with that.

Exciting new characters
Season three will bring on a couple of new characters, and while we already know from the season two finale that one of them is going to be Lilith, most of the others are still unknown. Emeraude teased the casting announcements were going to blow the fans away and mentioned during her takeover, that an important new season three character had their first day of filming.

Shadowhunters at NYCC
Just before the end of her live chat, she answered a question about New York Comic Con, more particularly about who will attend the panel. Emeraude wasn’t sure yet, only revealed that not the entire cast would make it since some had to stay in Toronto to keep working on season three. By now, the participants have been revealed: Katherine McNamara (Clary Fray), Isaiah Mustafa (Luke Garroway), Alisha Wainwright (Maia Roberts) and Matthew Daddario (Alec Lightwood) are going to be there alongside producers Darren Swimmer, Todd Slavkin and Matt Hastings. Let’s hope for some good season three spoilers.

The Shadowhunters NYCC panel is scheduled for Saturday, October 7th at 12 pm ET (6PM European Central Time) at Madison Square Garden. SDN will be covering the event.

#AlbertoTakeover

October 4th, 2017: #AlbertoTakeover
The second week of the takeovers was all about our dear Simon Lewis, played by Alberto Rosende. Alberto kept the fandom entertained with lots of pictures from set, and sat down for a 25-minute live chat where he revealed quite a few details about what we can expect for the new season.

Trouble ahead
Regarding what the fans can expect for season three, Alberto teased that with Shadowhunters, things always get worse before they get better. He said that in his eyes, season three was going to be a lot scarier than season one and two, with more heartbreak and problems that are going to test the characters time and time again. Addressing Simon’s arc in particular, Alberto said that there was a lot of change ahead for him in terms of places and people, which might be tough at first, but would eventually help him grow as a person.

New music by Simon
What we already learned in the first two seasons, is that not only is Simon an NYU student and the dorkiest vampire ever, but also a talented musician. We already got to hear Alberto’s beautiful singing voice twice last season: first when Simon played “Fragile World” during his gig at the Hunter’s Moon in 2x13 and then again in 2x17, when Maia walks in on Simon playing “Royal Blue” on his guitar and they both decide to take things slow in their relationship. Alberto revealed that those two songs were not the last ones we are going to hear and that he was actually recording a new single the day of his takeover.

Rough times for vampires
Raphael and Simon’s relationship has had its fair share of ups and downs ever since they met and that is not going to change that fast. Regarding the development of those two fan favorites, Alberto said that it was very difficult. With Raphael being busy leading the New York vampire clan and Simon not always understanding how taxing that task is, there’s lots of material for more conflicts ahead. Alberto had a lot of praise for David Castro, saying that he’d killed his scenes in 3x04. If that meant that there are going to be a few major Raphael moments in the new season, we are so here for it.

#HarryTakeover

October 10th, 2017: #HarryTakeover
The Tuesday after New York Comic Con, it was time for everyone’s favorite warlock to take over the Shadowhunters’ social medias. Harry Shum Jr started his takeover right after he came off a night shoot for 3x05 and took us on a little tour around the outside area of the Shadowhunters set in Toronto.

After spending the first couple of minutes of his takeover musing about possible names if there ever was a Shadowhunters theme park (our personal favorite was “Chairman Meow’s Haven“, if we’re honest), Harry revealed that shooting of season 3A is halfway done.
Unfortunately, he didn’t reveal a lot of details about the third season, just that there are plenty of emotional scenes waiting for us: funny and dramatic ones, but also some that are going to make us cry.

What Harry could offer, however, was a little preview into Magnus’ arc this upcoming season. He said that we will see Magnus evolving as a character and also get a deeper glimpse into his past. This fits pretty well with the rumor that Magnus’ father Asmodeus will make an appearance this season, as well as the already confirmed guest starring of Javier Muñoz as Magnus’ old enemy Lorenzo Rey.

Introducing The Shirt™ (x)
Since Harry’s live chat happened right at the beginning of his takeover, he took the rest of the day to treat us to some insights on set life via instagram, such as a quick walk through Magnus’ new study, which was unfortunately just too quick to really see anything.

After that, we got a glimpse at the new, fancier version of Alec that Matt teased at NYCC last weekend in the form of several pictures of him in a dark shirt we had never seen before. While we here at SDN may still be unsure about whether that shirt was black, blue or purple, we all very much agree that it looked absolutely glorious. The Shadowhunters’ costume department sure know how to upgrade someone’s wardrobe. And how to kill the entire SDN team in the process. But that’s a story for another time.

#AlishaTakeover

October 17th, 2017: #AlishaTakeover
This week it was Alisha Wainwright’s takeover, whom we all know as sassy bartender and badass werewolf Maia Roberts. Alisha started her takeover with a selfie from the gym, later on we got to catch up with her while she was getting her hair and makeup done. Her live chat didn’t happen until she was done filming, but it had a special guest: Alberto Rosende - who had his takeover two weeks ago - stopped by for the last couple of minutes.

Unfortunately, Alisha couldn’t talk much about the new season, but she did drop a few hints here and there. One of them was the fact that she was filming with Alberto on Tuesday, so more Maia/Simon scenes are coming our way. Although being the most “mundane” couple in Alisha’s eyes, she teased that those two are in for some trouble this season, and that “all we can hope for is that their happiness continues”. Seems like there are rough times ahead for Simon and Maia.

More werewolf scenes and backstories
Times might be less tough for Izzy and Maia as those two might get to know each other better in season three. Alisha kept her answer very vague when a fan asked about Maia and Izzy, but from what we gathered, these two are going to get some more screen time, as well as Maia and some other shadowhunters that have yet to be determined. Hence why the Izzy/Maia scenes remain unverified info.

Luckily there was also something Alisha could already confirm: Season three is going to dive deeper into the world of the werewolves. She said that there would be plenty of werewolf backstory, and that the scenes were going to be “wonderful”. With now two main characters who are werewolfs, we guess it is safe to say that those scenes were long overdue. We can’t wait to see them.

That is all you need to know - for now. No matter whose takeover is next, there’s a good chance we might get some more season three spoilers - so make sure to catch up with us next week!

All you need to know about Harry’s new project “Escape Plan 3”!

All you need to know about Harry’s new project “Escape Plan 3”!

Escape Plan is a 2013 American action thriller film starring Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger. Written by Miles Chapman and Jason Keller, the movie was directed by Swedish filmmaker Mikael Håfström.

Harry joins Escape Plan 3!
Harry will play Bao who joins Breslin' team.
Harry will join Sylvester Stallone, 50 Cent...

It followed Stallone's character Ray Breslin, a structural-security authority, who found himself set up and incarcerated in the world's most secret and secure prison. He had to use his skills to escape the institution aided by fellow inmate Emil Rottmayer (Schwarzenegger).

Barely any information on the second and third installment has leaked so far.
In April 2017, while Escape Plan 2: Hades was still in production, Emmett/Furla/Oasis Films already gave the greenlight for the Part 3. As John Herzfeld replaces Håfström as the director of the movie, Miles Chapman is set to reprise his position as writer. And while Schwarzenegger is no longer part of the franchise, Stallone will continue portraying Breslin.

Plot

In this installment, the daughter of a Hong Kong tech executive goes missing in what appears to be a routine ransom job. As Breslin and his crew delve deeper, they discover the culprit is the deranged son of one of their former foes, who also kidnapped Breslin’s love and is holding her inside the massive prison known as Devil’s Station.
Harry Shum Jr. will play Bao, who joins Breslin’s team on the rescue mission.

Casting

Returning as Ray Breslin is Sylvester Stallone, 50 Cent as Hush, Jeff Chase (Frankie) and Tyler Jon Olson (Moe) who will be joined by Malese Jow, Sergio Rizzuto, Dave Bautista, Devonta Freeman and Kevin E. Murphy in thus far unknown roles.

Harry Shum Jr will join this amazing cast to take on the role of Bao, a new addition to Breslin's team.
