The newest member of the X-Men heading into X-Men: Apocalypse is someone both new and old.

Director Bryan Singer has announced on his Instagram that newcomer actress Lana Condor has been cast in the role of Jubilee.

The Jubilee character is no stranger to X-Men in film, as the character has been portrayed in the original X-Men by Katrina Florece, X2: X-Men United and X-Men: The Last Stand by Kea Wong, and even in the nearly-forgotten Generation X television movie by Heather McComb. Furthermore, Jubilee was in earlier versions of the X-Men: Days of Future Past script, with official concept art being created using actress Jamie Chung's likeness before being cut from the movie.

This would seem to be Condor's first major role, as the actress has no listed roles in television or movies as per IMDB.

X-Men: Apocalypse is due in theatres May 27, 2016, with filming announced as beginning this April.
