Amber Midthunder Joins The Cast Of 'Legion'

And the casting news continues!

The X-Men spinoff show Legion recently announced the addition of Jeremy Harris to the cast of the pilot. Now, add Amber Midthunder as well. Read on for all the details!


Amber Midthunder (I can’t get enough of her name)

Legion‘s casting train continues to chug along at a break neck pace. Just a couple of weeks ago we learned Dan Stevens would play the lead, David Haller, and who would be comprising the supporting cast. Than only a few days ago we heard of Jeremy Harris joining the production. Now, and possibly the most badass sounding of all, we have Amber Midthunder joining the Legion ranks.

Known for her roles in Banshee and Spare Parts, Midthunder will be playing someone by the name of Kerry. Details about Kerry are unknown at this point outside of this vague description, “a woman of action with a childlike sense of wonder. A true savant, Kerry has lived a sheltered, but never dull life.”

Whether or not Midthunder’s Kerry ends up being a mutant of some kind is yet to be determined, but with a name like hers nobody will mess with her regardless (Midthunder, not Kerry).

Legion is set to kick off production early next month, and is expected to premiere on FX sometime this fall.
