Gotham’s Natalie Alyn Lind has joined the upcoming X-Men series pilot
The cast for FOX‘s upcoming X-Men series pilot continues to grow today, as Variety reveals Natalie Alyn Lind (The Goldbergs) has joined the comic book ensemble. Lind joins a cast that already includes Stephen Moyer, Sean Teale, Blair Redford and Jamie Chung. Produced by 20th Century Fox Television and Marvel Television, the series will focus on two ordinary parents who discover their children possess mutant powers. Forced to go on the run from a hostile government, the family joins up with an underground network of mutants and must fight to survive.
From writer Matt Nix (Burn Notice) and director Bryan Singer (X-Men: Apocalypse), the new series is still without an official title. Natalie Alyn Lind’s character is said to be playing the role of Lauren, one of the family’s children.
“[Lauren is] smart, pretty, popular, organized and already ahead on her college applications,” reads the trade’s character description. “She is the model of a perfect kid.”
No stranger to comic book television, Natalie Alyn Lind has previously guest starred on FOX’s Gotham as Silver St. Cloud.
“Developing a Marvel property has been a top priority for the network–and we are so pleased with how Matt Nix has led us into this thrilling universe,” Fox Entertainment president David Madden said back in July when the show was announced. “There’s comic book adventure, emotional and complicated relationships, and a rich, existing mythology from which to draw. With the brilliant production crew behind this project, it has all the makings of a big, fun and exciting new series.”
