It’s been a huge year for actress Alexandra Shipp. The Arizona native played Aaliyah in Lifetime’s Aaliyah: The Princess of R&B, stars in the forthcoming N.W.A biopic, Straight Outta Compton and will now be featured in 20th Century Fox’s, X-Men Apocalypse.

Producer Bryan Singer announced via Twitter on Thursday that Shipp will play Storm in the upcoming superhero film. Bryan also confirmed that Sophie Turner and Tye Sheridan were also cast in the movie.

“Meet our new and brilliant young mutants: as as and as . ,” he tweeted.

And although Shipp hasn’t directly responded to the big news, she did post this photo on Instagram after Singer’s announcement with the caption:

“My current mood right now.”
