Sean Teale To Play New Mutant In Fox’s X-Men Series
In addition to his starring role on the aforementioned CW series, Teale has appeared in a number of other television productions. Having guest roles in episodes of Summer in Transylvania, The Bible, and Mr. Selfridge, the actor has also been featured in Syfy‘s original TV film Abominable Snowman and Lifetime‘s miniseries The Red Tent. On top of this, he had a starring role in Syfy’s drama Incorporated, which ended last month after one season.
The news that Teale will have a role in the series comes in the wake of the announcement that Stephen Moyer would play the lead character in the program. Teale’s character, Marcos Diaz or Eclipse as he is also known, is described as “passionate” and a “strong-willed fighter” who is able to absorb and control photons.
“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.”
