8 Actresses Who Were Considered to Play Jean Grey in X-Men: Apocalypse
Lots of actors and actresses auditioned for the X-Men movies, but either didn’t make the cut or turned down the role. Unfortunately for them, the films have been wildly successful, making tons of money and propelling stars who did get the gig to A-list fame. Those who weren’t in the final cuts are, at this point, probably pretty bummed that they didn’t go all the way.
The Marvel team considered multiple celebrities for each role in the movie franchise, most notably Wolverine — sources say that more than nine actors auditioned before Hugh Jackman finally landed it. But what about all the other characters? Well, we have confirmation that almost the same amount of women were considered to play Jean Grey in X-Men: Apocalypse, but it was Sophie Turner who ultimately came out on top. Read on to see who auditioned and/or was considered, but didn’t make the cut!
According to IMDb, this Pretty Little Liars star was offered the role that went to Sophie Turner in the end, but ultimately turned it down. Her reps never disclosed the reason for her decision, but she definitely would have made a cute Jean Grey.
