Legion is down a bad guy. Variety reports Saïd Taghmaoui has left the FX TV show prior to season two.
From Marvel, the sci-fi drama centers on David Haller (Dan Stevens), the troubled son of Charles Xavier (aka Professor X) who may be more than human. The cast also includes Aubrey Plaza, Rachel Keller, Bill Irwin, Jeremie Harris, Amber Midthunder, Katie Aselton, and Jean Smart.
Earlier this year, Taghmaoui was cast as Legion‘s main villain, Amahl Farouk (aka The Shadow King). Now, the actor has announced he is exiting the FX series so the role will have to be recast.
