Meet David Castro: On and Off the Shadowhunters Set.

David Castro is bringing the vampire Raphael Santiago to...erm...life? It's a tiring job keeping those fangs in the right place at all times. Sometimes a guy needs some much needed time to chill. Take a look!

Or even cantering by the sea!

Riding on the beach on my day off. Got to love God and his creations.

But he's happy to switch up his sports when the season suits.

The winter substitution for golf.
