Variety is exclusively reporting that Lauren Tsai has signed up to star in the upcoming third season of Marvel series Legion at FX.
The series focuses on a mutant named David Haller. Since he was a teenager, David has struggled with mental illness. Diagnosed as schizophrenic, David has been in and out of psychiatric hospitals for years.
