Share This Article:
At last weekend's MCM Comic Con in London, the cast of Freeform's fan-favourite show Shadowhunters dished the dirt on filming their final season, and how they reacted to the online campaign #SaveShadowhunters. When Freeform cancelled Shadowhunters earlier this year, fans met the news with an extrordinary energy that wowed the cast of the show. Emeraude Toubia, who plays Isabelle Lightwood, said of the fan response: "the fans are just so amazing; they keep surprising us. Everything we have is because of them, and we're so grateful." Alberto Rosende, who plays Simon Lewis, added: "you guys were here before we were; it's your mythology, your world. It's going to be here after we're gone, it's going to live on with you guys." After an emotional start to the panel, talk soon moved onto to backstage antics, with moderator Tanavi Patel asking the cast about the sets they would miss the most now that filming had wrapped on season 3b. Alberto surprised none of his fellow cast when he chimed in with his nostalgia for Simon's bedroom, and how he'd miss all the gadgets and gizmos it was fitted out with. Jade Hassoune, who plays Meliorne, argued the case for the seelie court set: "[it's] just beautiful. There's a scene in the new season, and it's going to be like a painting."
