‘Shadowhunters’ casts ‘Reign’ alum, Alan Van Sprang as Valentine

Wondering who would play the evil character that is Valentine in Shadowhunters? Well we got our answer earlier this afternoon (May 15th).

Alan Van SprangAlan Van Sprang will portray Valentine in ABC Family’s upcoming TV series, Shadowhunters. Sprang is not new to television. In fact his most recent television role was King Henry II in the CW TV series Reign (yes, I will be making punny King Henry jokes in my recaps/reviews of this show). Other film credits Sprang has are: The Tudors, Immortals, and The L.A Complex.

Valentine is a cunning and controlling Shadowhunter that seeks immense power. He won’t let anything or anyone get in his way from getting what he wants. Yes, Valentine is the character Clary, Jace and friends hear of/fear. This character will be recurring throughout the 13 episode first season.

What do you guys think of Alan Van Sprang as Valentine? The second I saw he was portraying this evil character, I knew he was perfect for the job. Seeing his acting chops in Reign, I know he can master the menacing, powerful character that is Valentine.

While you may have to wait until early 2016 to see Alan Van Sprang in action on Shadowhunters, you can catch him on this season of Beauty and the Beast in a few episodes starting June 11th.
