Originally, Blair Redford‘s character on the upcoming FOX mutant drama The Gifted was referred to as “Sam;” later, it was revealed that his character is the legendary doomed member of the “New X-Men,” Thunderbird…. a new press release from FOX has confirmed that Redford’s character actually is John Proudstar, who is that iconic Thunderbird!
(Also, the last name “Strucker” for the family of The Gifted gives us serious Fenris vibes…)
