Famke Janssen On X-MEN Movies; Reveals Details Of Her Appearance In THE WOLVERINE
What Culture caught up with Famke Janssen to discuss her directorial debut Bringing Up Bobby, but of course talk also turned to her involvement with the X-Men movie franchise -- 3 films of which she has played mutant telepath Jean Grey in. The actress was asked about a possible appearance in Bryan Singer's upcoming X-Men: Days Of Future Past but remained tight lipped, instead revealing her admiration for the films and the cast they attract.
A brief glimpse of Janssen as Jean Grey in the first teaser for James Mangold's The Wolverine finally confirmed the character's appearance in the movie (obviously) after a lot of speculation, but how big a role will she play? The actress reveals all to What Culture..
“I think that the X-Men series is a really successful one in constantly finding new and additional characters, or younger versions of the same characters to explore. Of course the X-Men as a comic book has so many characters that filmmakers can explore. I like what they’re doing. I think that they’ve always chosen really fine actors. With X-Men: First Class you had Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence and James McAvoy so it’s amazing the kind of actors they keep getting for these. It’s a classy series so I’m proud to be a part of it”.
Younger versions of characters? Could she be talking about a young Jean Grey? Anyway, she is a bit more revealing when it comes to her upcoming appearance in The Wolverine, confirming that it will indeed just be a flashback she pops up in. “I couldn't tell you [how much I’m in it]. It’s a flashback sequence, but that’s all I can say. You’ll just have to wait until July!”
