Alan Van Sprang Joins ‘Shadowhunters’ as Valentine

Valentine Morgenstern has arrived.

Alan Van Sprang has been cast as the villainous Valentine in ABC Family’s Shadowhunters, the network announced on Friday.

Van Sprang was an excellent King Henry on Reign. He totally has that evil thing down.

The press release describes Valentine as, “Brilliant, cunning, and dangerously handsome, Valentine is a mysterious Shadowhunter wielding immense power. His stoic, charming, and confident presence allows him control over his many followers. To seek out what he wants, Valentine executes anyone in his way, never thinking twice about it.”

This is going to be amazing!

Shadowhunters begins filming just one week from Monday in Toronto and will premiere in early 2016 on ABC Family.
