Good news Downton Abbey fans – Dan Stevens is about to be back on our television screens!
Stevens is set to star in Legion, the new X-Men universe pilot coming to FX from Fargo creator Noah Hawley. He’ll be playing David Haller, otherwise known as Legion. In the Marvel comics universe, he is the son of X-Men founder Charles Xavier, and has struggled with mental illness for most of his life. Diagnosed with schizophrenia and constantly in and out of mental hospitals, David is about to give up trying to find his way back to sanity when he meets the girl of his dreams, who happens to be a fellow patient. This encounter causes him to question whether the voices he hears and the visions he sees are real.
