Climon finally happened on ‘Shadowhunters,’ and fans could not be happier! For those who don’t know, Clary and Simon are a fan fave ship on the hit show, and Alberto Rosende and Katherine McNamara talked EXCLUSIVELY to HollywoodLife.com all about it!
We have SOOO many questions for Katherine McNamara, 21, and Alberto Rosende, 24, now that their Shadowhunters characters Clary and Simon are finally together! How long will they last? Will Jace or Maia get in the way? Was the kissing scene weird to shoot?! Luckily, Kat and Alberto gave HollywoodLife.com all the answers you need, EXCLUSIVELY!
When asked if Simon and Clary belong together, Kat said “for Simon and Clary, this is the right time for them,” she explained. “So much has changed for them and they look at each other, and not only do they see each other in a new light for their powers and confidence, but they are the only constant left in each others lives.”
Alberto had a similar idea, saying “in our story it seems like Clary and Simon have a real shot, and I love that, it’s exciting,” he gushed. “I know that Clary still has this other thing going on and no one wants to be the second choice, but at the same time if you get a chance with your first choice, you take it! Simon is going to run with it, he’s going to do his absolute best.”
So, was it weird for the actors when they finally got together? “The coolest thing was that it was so weird, because it wasn’t weird,” explained Alberto. “The whole dynamic of their relationship changed, but they were already so comfortable. A lot of the things that are intimate, like holding hands, they’ve experienced in a friend way, but now they get to re-experience that.” “As an actor it’s so much fun to shoot these scenes because we’re used to death and intensity but to do a scene that’s just happy romance is such a relief,” said Kat.
We can’t help but worry that Maia or Jace might cause a problem, and Kat didn’t exactly put our minds at ease. “Maia is this new factor, not only is she part of Simon’s life but shes part of Luke’s life, and those are Clary’s rocks and support system,” she explained. “Things may come to a head very quickly.” “Jealousy is very new for Clary,” Alberto explained, “because he was her best friend and she didn’t worry about other girls before because she didn’t see him like that. Now she does.”
HollywoodLifers, tune into Shadowhunters next week on Monday at 8pm EST to see what happens next!
