It looks like Switched At Birth star Blair Redford is playing exactly who we thought he was playing in X-Men: Gifted.
The young actor was cast very early on and was to play Sam, a native American who leads the underground mutant resistance.
And immediately everyone figured he had to be playing Thunderbird, John Proudstar, an Apache who had incredible athletic abilities who was part of the X-Men lineup alongside Colossus, Storm, Nightcrawler and Wolverine in the classic comic books.
Now a tweet showing the line-up of actors and who they are playing confirms that the show is indeed going to be using the classic X-Men character.
Gifted is really shaping up to be an exciting entry into the X-Men lore… we just wonder how comic book it will go; spandex or real world? Only time will tell, we guess.
