British actress Sophie Turner has spoken out about her interpretation of the iconic superhero Jean Grey in Bryan Singer’s upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse.
Turner, in an interview with Entertainment Weekly admitted that her Jean Grey will differ from previous incarnations:
““The difference between this and Famke’s Jean Grey is she’s young and isolated and so insecure and very alienated – even from the other mutants – because she’s so powerful. So there’s a real vulnerability to her and it’s great to see how her and Scott [Tye Sheridan] find each other through that alienation. She’s a great role to play, she’s so much fun, and her arc in the movie is amazing.”
Turner will be joined by a star-studded cast including, Hugh Jackman, Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, Jennifer Lawrence and Oscar Issac. The film is due to hit cinemas in the UK on May 19, and the US May 26.
