Dan Stevens attended the premiere of the 2nd season of the FX series Legion together with his wife Susie Hariet in April 2018, at the DGA Theater.
He wore a magenta Paul Smith wool suit from the Spring 2018 menswear collection (the suit probably benefited from some altering, considering it was a two-button jacket) styled with checkerboard Dr. Martens 1461 Playing Card shoes.
Legion is an American cable television series created for FX by Noah Hawley, based on the Marvel Comics character David Haller/Legion.
David was diagnosed with schizophrenia at a young age and met the “girl of his dreams” in a psychiatric hospital.The character possesses various psychic abilities, including telepathy and telekinesis.
Stevens did extensive research on mental health to prepare for the role, talking to both mentally ill people and doctors.
The director and the cast kept secrets from Stevens about the character and plot so that he could identify with David‘s confusion about himself and reality.
The second season aired from April to June 2018.
