Saïd Taghmaoui exits ‘Legion’ season 2

Wonder Woman star Saïd Taghmaoui has exited season two of FX’s Legion, currently in production in Los Angeles.

An FX spokesperson confirmed Tuesday that Taghmaoui has left the production, saying that a decision was made to recast his role, but not commenting further.

No new actor has yet been set.

Taghmaoui appeared to announce his departure from the series Saturday on Twitter, writing, “Finally I’m not going to be in Legion but a big surprise coming soon.”

Legion began shooting in September. It is not known how many scenes with Taghmoaoui had already been shot.

Legion creator Noah Hawley announced in July at Comic Con that Taghmaoui would join the series for season two as villain Amahl Farouk — aka the Shadow King.

The Shadow King was played in season one by Aubrey Plaza, who portrayed the character in the guise of protagonist David Haller’s friend Lenny, and Quinton Boisclair, who portrayed him as a monster who haunted Haller (Dan Stevens). Both actors are set to reprise their versions of the character in season two.
