Legion has begun casting for it’s third season. According to Heroic Hollywood, Lauren Tsai has joined the show as a new mutant. The actress first appeared on the Japanese Language show Terrance House: Aloha State. Legion marks the actress’s first television appearance.
Tsai will be playing Switch, a mutant with a secret ability that will “help David with his plan.” The end of Legion Season 2 saw David facing a challenge that left him as a villain. Just how Switch will connect to David (and which David she’ll connect to) remains to be seen. The second season of the show forced David to confront his actions and illustrated that there might be more to him then just a protagonist, and a perennial victim.
The third season of Legion was announced on June 1rst, 2018. Lauren Tsai is the first casting announcement for the series. Famed for it’s avante garde take on the X-Men franchise, it is currently filming in Los Angeles.
Legion stars Dan Stevens, Rachel Keller, Jean Smart, Jeremie Harris, Amber Midthunder, Bill Irwin, Aubrey Plaza, Jemaine Clement, Hamish Linklater, and Navid Negahban.
