As ambassador, the “Crazy Rich Asians” star is tasked to attend pre-show events, share insider views on social media, and announce the film and TV stunt ensembles honored for outstanding action performances during the pre-show webcast.
People can also look to Shum to post news about the event, as well as behind-the-scenes impressions of the production ahead of the ceremony.
Additionally, the 36-year-old actor will attend the Pouring of the Actor statuette, the “Cocktails with the SAG Awards” media day, and share his thoughts and experiences before and during the show.
Shum is a SAG Award winner himself, bagging “Outstanding Ensemble in a Comedy Series” in 2010 for his work on “Glee” as Mike Chang. He also won the People’s Choice Awards for Male TV Star in 2018 for his role as Magnus Bane on “Shadowhunters.”
In a Twitter post, he described his appointment as an “incredible honor.”
Fans congratulated him:
Shum’s “Shadowhunters” returns for its third and final season on Feb. 25, 2019.
