Ron and Ed talk to cosplay star and creature-feature actor Morgana about her Nerd GOAT: Illyana Rasputin aka Magik! Just in time for Marvel's epic X-Men relaunch.
Morgana is a performer who's found a niche playing demons, monsters and other effects-heavy characters. She stars in THE CURIOUS CREATIONS OF CHRISTINE McCONNELL on Netflix, STAN AGAINST EVIL on IFC and Hulu, the feature films CUCUY: The Boogeyman and THE SANDMAN, and in the title role of the renowned Harry Potter prequel fan film SEVERUS SNAPE AND THE MARAUDERS.
Morgana's background in creature effects and acting also makes her a standout cosplayer – if you're at L.A. Comic-Con, keep an eye out for her Magik character in its final form! Follow @mickignis and @CosplayMorgana on Instagram and @IgnisTwote on Twitter for more from Morgana!
