MTV.COM – It’s not easy Christmas shopping for Magnus Bane. He’s literally seen and done it all in his 300 years. So what do you get for the immortal warlock who has everything? We asked author Cassandra Clare and the cast of Freeform’s (née ABC Family) upcoming series “Shadowhunters” what they would get the High Warlock of Brooklyn for the holidays — and needless to say, it sparked a few heated debates.
Does Magnus love Chairman Meow more than he loves Alec? Would an all-powerful warlock use a cleaning service? And when it comes to the age-old boxers vs. briefs debate, is Magnus really more of a sexy thong kind of guy? One thing is for certain: Magnus Bane is about to have a Christmas he’ll never forget.
5. Matthew Daddario thought Magnus would be really into antiquities.
“I’d get him old things,” Daddario said. “I get him antiquities.” Little did Daddario know that this would spark a huge debate among the “Shadowhunters” cast.
“He already has those antiquities because he’s 300 years old,” Sherwood said, to which Daddario responded: “He has them because he likes them. So I would get him new ones.”
However, Sherwood wasn’t ready to let this one go. “But he had them when they were new,” he said. “How do you get somebody new antiquities? He already had those antiquities when they were new in that era. Buying them when they’re old would just be moronic.”
Clearly, Sherwood does not spend his Sunday afternoons thrifting for ~ vintage ~ finds.
8. Daddario then had another, less controversial, idea.
“Get him cable. The full package with HBO and everything. Maybe even a subscription to Netflix. I feel like Alec would enjoy that, too.”
