On Whether She'd Play Psylocke Again In A Future X-Men Movie:

"Whether I am part of X-Men again or not, I would love to see Psylocke come back. I think she is a great character that has had really interesting reincarnations over the years, many of which would play out great in film. If fans want a character enough I am sure the studio will bring them in at some point."

On Whether She Was Playing Psylocke Or Kwannon:

"Psylocke is pretty popular, so when fans or journalists express their disappointment I totally understand and I have acknowledged this frustration in past interviews. But honestly - from a personal place - I was pretty happy to be in the movie in whatever capacity."

"There was discussion that she was Kwannon or possibly other characters too, but I can't comment on the final choice made. There were certain aspects of her that were true to Psylocke: the red tattoo from Crimson Dawn, and the purple hair - though it was obviously shorter. Outfit-wise - and this is my personal opinion only - if she was standing there in her usual skintight outfit - which I do find sexy and would have been so stoked to wear - it might not have matched the tone or what the other characters were wearing."


On The Negative Reaction Fans Had To The Movie:

"Anyway, overall the film did very well, right? So they obviously did something right. I know a lot of people - maybe not hardcore X-Men fans but the general public - enjoyed their 12 bucks' worth.

Anyway, overall the film did very well, right? So they obviously did something right. I know a lot of people - maybe not hardcore X-Men fans but the general public - enjoyed their 12 bucks' worth. You know, I sometimes wish that fans could be a fly on the wall during the making of films like this, I'm sure they would get why certain decisions have to be made. What I saw was a lot of commitment from the writers, producers and director to make the best film possible."


On X-Men: First Class:

"I think Matthew Vaughn makes great films. I really loved Layer Cake. And, yes, I am excited. I have a friend Edi Gathegi who is going to be in it, he's such a unique talented actor and a lovely guy and I'm excited to see what he and the other actors bring to their roles."
