The makers of FX‘s cable TV series, Legion have now added Saïd Taghmaoui to the star cast. The actor will be portraying The Shadow King on the show who is known for possessing psychic powers and is also called as Amahl Farouk. The latter started controlling everyone around him physically right after his powers got developed and he secretly emerged as The Shadow King. Therefore, witnessing the villainous character in Legion Season 2 will be quite absorbing for viewers.
The news of Taghmaoui’s addition to the star cast came into the picture when the creator of Legion, Noah Hawley (she is also one of the executive producers of the series) announced about the same at the San Diego Comic-Con festival. And on the other hand, it was also confirmed that Quinton Boisclair and Plaza are also going to be a part of Legion Season 2.
Coming back to Taghmaoui, the actor was last seen in Patty Jenkins’ Wonder Woman in which he depicted the character of Sameer. Taghmaoui is known for his acting prowess in movies such as Three Kings, G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra, The Good Thief and so on.
We had earlier talked about the relocation of Legion Season 2 production as it has been said that the filming this time will take place in California. If you have followed the first installment thoroughly, then you must know that it was entirely shot in Vancouver. Therefore, fans are quite thrilled to witness a new backdrop in the second season of Legion.
The previously aired installment of the series has received great responses from the fandom due to which people are now expecting something more out of Legion Season 2. The show already got conferred with two prestigious awards such as the Golden Trailer Award and the TVLine’s Performer of the Week Award. So, we can certainly anticipate watching another victorious installment.
