Family adventure series THE GIFTED, from 20th Century Fox Television in association with Marvel Television, tells the story of a suburban couple whose ordinary lives are rocked by the sudden discovery that their children possess mutant powers.

In the press room for the series at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, we got to speak with stars Stephen Moyer (“Reed Strucker”), Emma Dumont (“Polaris”), Jamie Chung (“Blink”), Percy Hynes White (“Andy Strucker”) & Natalie Alyn Lind (“Lauren Strucker”). When Stephen Moyer sat down he told us he brought his daughter with him—we all thought he was making a joke about being paired with his daughter from the show, but he did in fact bring his actual daughter to sit at the roundtable with him. Unfortunately, the actors were left at the tables a little too long and we ended up running out of time before getting to speak with nearly half of the actors present. Those we missed were Amy Acker, Sean Teale, Coby Bell and Blair Redford.
