LEGION: New Featurette Illustrates The Creation Of The Unsettling Devil With Yellow Eyes

Legion's main villain was an unsettling mix of unconventional and creepy, and a new featurette has detailed the process of creating the "Devil with Yellow Eyes". Hit the jump to check it out!

Legion's supremely creepy monster, the Devil with Yellow Eyes (later revealed as the villainous Shadow King), provided a dash of horror to the first season of the FX series.  The character's disturbing, obese appearance, coupled with its propensity to appear at unexpected moments, lent a feeling of unease to both the characters and audience alike.

Now, a new featurette from the network has provided a behind-the-scenes look as to how the devil's creepy visage was created for the show. With the villain (played by Aubrey Plaza) finding a new host in Oliver Bird (Jemaine Clement) at the end of the season, odds are we haven't seen the last of this sinister form! Check out the video below and let us know what you think!



Legion, based on the Marvel Comics by Chris Claremont and Bill Sienkiewicz, is the story of David Haller (Dan Stevens), a troubled young man who may be more than human. Diagnosed as schizophrenic as a child, David has been in and out of psychiatric hospitals for years. Now in his early 20's and free once again, David loses himself in the rhythm of the structured regimen of daily life: breakfast, lunch, dinner, therapy, medications, sleep. David spends the rest of his time in companionable silence alongside his chatterbox friend Lenny (Aubrey Plaza), a fellow patient whose life-long drug and alcohol addiction has done nothing to quell her boundless optimism that her luck is about to change. The pleasant numbness of David's routine is completely upended with the arrival of a beautiful and troubled new patient named Syd (Rachel Keller). Inexplicably drawn to one another, David and Syd share a startling encounter, after which David must confront the shocking possibility that the voices he hears and the visions he sees may actually be real.
