According to THR, former Person of Interest and Angel star Amy Acker has been cast as the female lead in Matt Nix’s X-Men television series. Acker will play Kate Stewart, wife of Stephen Moyer’s character, who is described as "a woman who is struggling with her separation from her husband Reed (Moyer) and her increasingly challenging teenage children. When her family situation takes a dark turn, she finds that she’s stronger than she thinks.”

The show has also added Emma Dumont (Aquarius, Bunheads) as a character that should be familiar to Marvel Comics fans: Lorna Dane/Polaris. This small screen take on the powerful but unstable mutant is said to be a "strong-willed, brave and loyal mutant who has the ability to manipulate magnetism."

Meanwhile, young Night at The Museum actor Percy Hynes White will play Andy, "a sensitive kid and bit of a loner, who keeps to himself to avoid the turmoil he faces at school and at home."

Bryan Singer will direct the pilot episode of the still not officially titled X-Men family drama series, which will also star Sean Teale, Blair Redford and Stephen Moyer.
