Ever since it was revealed that the name of the family that The Gifted would be focusing on was “Strucker”, it got a lot of people’s attention. Not only because of Baron Von Strucker but more because of his children Andrea and Andreas.
Now it is 100% official that the choice of the Strucker name was no coincidence. FOX released the official description for episode 8 of the new X-Men drama and it reveals that the twins are indeed making their live-action debuts.
Paul Cooper and Caitlin Mehner will portray Andreas and Andrea respectively in “threat of eXtinction” which will air on November 20. The synopsis teases that Reed will discover a major secret about his family’s past, which may have to do with the twins.
The synopsis also reveals that Scream Queens star Skyler Samuels will guest star as “Esme”. It remains to be seen whether or not Gifted‘s Esme is the same as the Marvel mutant Esme Cuckoo.
