‘Shadowhunters’: Behind the Scenes of the Finale’s Biggest Moment (PHOTOS)
In Shadowhunters‘ series finale, two of the #Shadowfam’s favorite characters, Shadowhunter Alec Lightwood (Matthew Daddario) and warlock Magnus Bane (Harry Shum Jr.), got hitched after a season-long will-they-won’t-they filled with botched proposals, false break-ups, a trip to the hellish mirror dimension Edom, and more.
TV Insider was in Toronto last July to witness firsthand the beautiful wedding scene, which took place on the set of Alec’s workplace, the New York Institute.
As Daddario noted, weddings are “extremely difficult to shoot, logistically.” He adds, “There’s a lot of people around, a lot of camera angles. Overall, it’s a nightmare to shoot them, but the payoff is hopefully effective without being saccharine. Weddings have a tendency to — they can be beautiful, but they can quickly become, especially in a fantasy setting, cheesy. It’s a balance.”
If you were tearing up to “I Get to Love You” by Ruelle as Magnus walked down the aisle — the song was actually playing while they shot the scene — that probably means they avoided the whole “not being cheesy” thing.
We think so, at least.
