From a visual standpoint, it’s not as easy as it looks to cast a spell in the world of Syfy’s The Magicians. A lot of finger choreography goes into each series of gestures, and the cast dove into the details of the magic behind the scenes of the show’s witches and wizards when they stopped by EW’s lounge at San Diego Comic-Con.

“I’m probably the least talented at [tutting],” Summer Bishil (Margo) admitted. “[Choreographer] Kevin [Li]’s always like, ‘Summer, do it again.'”

Olivia Taylor Dudley (Alice) added, “Everybody has a different style of magic and tutting, and when [Li] first came in, he had all these really elaborate tuts in mind and showed us, and I was like, ‘Hell no.'”

The cast members, including Jason Ralph (Quentin) and Arjun Gupta (Will), further tease that The Magicians season 2 will show fans a lot more of Fillory. “Fillory is beautiful,” Bishil said. “It really feels like we’re somewhere magical when we’re in Vancouver because we’re always in some majestic forest and it’s lit like heavens are opening.”
