‘Legion’ casts Professor X and Gabrielle Haller

‘Game of Thrones’ Harry Lloyd will be the third actor to take on Charles Xavier.

With the news coming yesterday that season 3 of Legion will be the show’s last, Newsarama reports that Professor Xavier and Gabrielle Haller have been cast. Gabrielle and Xavier are the mother and father of Legion lead David Haller.

Harry Lloyd, Viserys Targaryen in Game of Thrones, has been cast as Charles Xavier. Lloyd’s the third actor to play Xavier, with Patrick Stewart and James McAvoy playing him in the X-Men and Wolverine films, while McAvoy briefly appeared in Deadpool 2.

Stephanie Corneliussen, Joanna Wellick in Mr. Robot, has been cast as Gabrielle Haller. This is the first time the character has appeared outside comics.

Legion is about a young man named David Haller who initially believes he’s mentally ill. However, early into the series he discovers he might be one of the most powerful Mutants there is — and that there could be more to the darkness inside him than he first thought.

Season 3 of Legion will begin on FX this June.
