In the latest season of "Shadowhunters," Simon (Alberto Rosende) is learning more about his powers. So far, it isn't as powerful as what he initially thought it would be, but he is starting to get the hang of it. Simon's vampire buddy Raphael (David Castro) recently gave IBTimes the heads-up on the undead.
For the uninitiated, Raphael will mentor the newly turned Simon, teaching him the ways of being a vampire. Castro was careful not to reveal too much about Simon's fate, but he did say that the vampire will learn more about his abilities and learn how to control it.
According to the actor, viewers can expect to see more of him in season 2 because he shares a lot of scenes with Simon. Unlike the first season which was more on Simon's transformation, the current season will get him to interact with the rest of the lead characters.
"For my character this season there are a lot of relationships that are formed but I can't say too much. He definitely interacts a lot more with the main cast, the regulars on the show, with everybody," Castro revealed.
The actor shared that there will be more action-driven scenes this season, and most of it will be fun to watch. The same can be said about filming for those scenes, Castro admitted. He described the production as laid-back because the "Shadowhunnters" cast and crew are all one big happy family.
As previously reported, another relationship that's going to be highlighted this season is the parabatai bond between Jace (Dominic Sherwood) and Alec (Matthew Daddario). Through their separation, viewers will know the depth of the unbreakable bond between shadowhunters that last a lifetime. Sherwood even hopes that the series will do justice to this beautiful relationship that is described as the most profound kinship in the world of shadowhunters.
"Shadowhunters" season 2 airs Mondays at 8 p.m. EST on Freeform.
