Dan Stevens Is Really, Really, Really Ridiculously Good Looking These Days

We're not in Downton Abbey anymore, folks

Kaitlin Thomas

Most Americans know Dan Stevens as the Guy Who Ruined Downton Abbey Because He Left After Season 3 and Eliminated Everything That Made Lady Mary Even Remotely Likable. But America, I have good news: Dan Stevens is back and it's OK to like him again. In fact, it's OK to love him.

After spending some time on Broadway and appearing in films like The Guest, Stevens returned to TV Wednesday as David Haller in FX's new X-Men comics-inspired drama series Legion. And he looked good. Like really good. If you haven't been paying attention to his career since he left Downton, you're in for the best kind of surprise.
