TWIST MAGAZINE – Shadowhunters fans know that the costumes on the TV series are beyond incredible. So when TWIST recently caught up with actor Matthew Daddario, who plays Alec on the Freeform show, we asked him to tell us all about the wardrobe department on set.
“Oh man, it’s a huge room run by a few very intense, lovely women, and they know everything quite well,” he shares. “At times, you say ‘am I really going to wear this?’ and they say ‘yes you are, and you’re gonna love it,’ and you end up loving it.”
“But going through there, it’s like a closet that belongs to some sort of maniac who doesn’t really know who he is,” he explains. “Because we have [everyone’s stuff] in there, we have Magnus’ stuff, our stuff, the werewolves… it’s crazy. It’s everything. The vampires have very specific looks, the werewolves have very specific looks. The Shadowhunters. All of it is very cool, and a lot of it is very expensive.”
When we asked if he ever tried to sneak out any costumes to wear on his own, he had the funniest answer!
“I asked, and I shouldn’t have asked!” he jokes.
In all seriousness, “if it disappeared, we would have to report that something was missing, and it would have caused a problem.”
We’re glad that he didn’t risk losing any of the outfits!
