FX’s ‘Legion’ Adds Rachel Keller As Female Lead

Following her highly acclaimed role in the second season of Fargo, Rachel Keller has joined the cast of FX’s Legion in the female lead role, which shouldn’t come as a surprise considering that Noah Hawley, the creator of Fargo, is on board as an executive producer on the X-Men spin-off.

While the identity of her character was not revealed, it appears that Keller will play a mutant with touch-based powers, similar to Rogue. We don’t even know whether or not her character is a friend or foe to David Haller — the son of Charles Xavier in the comics and protagonist of the series — so for now, feel free to speculate on her mystery role.

Bryan Singer and Noah Hawley will serve as executive producers. The latter also wrote the pilot, which will be produced by Lauren Shuler Donner and Simon Kinberg, as well as Marvel TV’s Jeph Loeb. Are you excited for Legion? Let us know in the comment section.
