Bryan Singer has jut announced that Lana Condor will be playing X-Men favorite Jubilee via Instagram.
If you are wondering if you’ve seen this actress anywhere you probably haven’t. Her IMDB page is all but blank. Most of the cast in X-Men Apocalypse is full of these young upstarts but Lana is probably the freshest of the bunch.
Jubilee was a fan favorite of comic fans in the 90s and starred in the X-Men cartoon on Fox. In those versions, Jubilee was a kid, freshly aware of her mutant abilities and has been training under the older and wise X-Team of Wolverine, Cyclops and Jean Grey. Reportedly in the film she will be more of a peer to Cyclops, Jean and the others.
Lana Condor isn’t the first to play Jubilation Lee on screen however, Katrina Florence played her in X-Men, and Kea Wong portrayed her in X2 and X-Men: First Class. However both of those actresses had all of about 2 lines between them so Lana is the first to really dig into the role.
The film opens in theaters May 27, 2016
