Anna Paquin back in “X Men Days of Future Past”


Fans of Anna Paquin’s “Rogue” will be pleased to learn today that according to Buzzfeed  Fox  have now confirmed she will be making a (brief) appearance in X Men Days of Future Past after all.

Breathe easy, X-Men fans: You will get to see Anna Paquin in X-Men: Days of Future Past after all.

In December, director Bryan Singer told Entertainment Weekly that the True Blood star “won’t appear” in the superhero sequel after the only action sequence involving her character Rogue had to be cut from the film. Singer explained that in the editing process, he discovered the sequence was “extraneous” to the story. “Unfortunately, it was the one and only sequence Anna Paquin was in, the Rogue character was in,” Singer said. “Even though she’s in the materials and part of the process of making the film, she won’t appear in it.”

That sequence may not have survived, but it turns out, Rogue has. After noticing Paquin’s name was conspicuously present in the credits following the newest trailer for the film released late Tuesday, a rep for 20th Century Fox has confirmed to BuzzFeed that Paquin is back in the film. “Essentially, [it’s] a cameo,” the rep said.


With 3 of my favorite actresses – Anna, Ellen Page and Jennifer Lawrence in them – I think I really need to give the X Men movies a go some time!

If you are a fan of the mutants then head over here watch the brand new trailer. (Warning: I do think it looks a bit spoilery!)

  1. Thanks Evie, I’m so glad this worked out!

  2. Well, I was one who signed the petition to keep Anna in this film. I guess it may have worked, or the Almighty stepped in and made sure Anna got the Cameo at the very least.
    Believe it or not, (since I’m probably the Grandma of this group,) I have watched and enjoyed each and everyone of the X-Men movies. So I am looking forward to seeing this one also.

    • Maybe the fan pressure did work – you never know! There was certainly a lot of publicity about Rogue being cut out, and I saw X Men fans complaining she deserved to be in the movie more than some of the other characters who have bigger roles, so maybe they did listen 🙂

  3. Fan pressure worked for this too bad we couldn’t get a Sookie and Eric HEA or spin off for True Blood

    • aolani08-Yeah, we’re definitely not getting our Sookie/Eric HEA. If I didn’t know any better, I would think that Bucky and Co. deliberately go out of their way to do the exact opposite of what they know the majority of the audience wants.

      Thanks for the share, Evie. Good news for Anna and Rogue fans. 🙂

      • I do think it’s a little early to say we definitely won’t get our S/E HEA. It’s probably about as likely as any other ending for Sookie with what we know at this moment in time. Of course there may be no HEAs at all on the show. I guess we won’t know until it is over exactly what kind of show TB actually was, and whether we were all meant to fall in love with Eric Northman or if it was just a happy accident.

        • Evie-thanks for responding to me. 🙂 I have a tendency to agree with Kat here. I believe that The Book Author had a loose idea for the SVM endgame (Sookie ends up romantically with Sam; Sookie stays in Bon Temps, living in her grandmother’s house, working at Merlotte’s; Sookie never, ever, under any circumstances, EVER becomes a vampire, because vampires are all EVIL or something, lol; etc.). I believe she intended for Eric to be nothing more than a plot device to create tension between Sookie and Bill. When she saw that Eric is the fan favorite (and Pam), she played them up to sell books, then in book 11 (or maybe subtly in book 10), she furiously retconned Eric, Bill, Sookie, etc., and jammed the story back to her originally scheduled ending. I think Ball knew all along how The Book Author loosely planned to end the books. Maybe Ball was going in the same direction with TB, or not. Maybe Hudis wanted to change course, but for some reason didn’t (or couldn’t). Maybe Buckner is going in the same direction as The Book Author. Time will tell. I don’t know. I’m rambling here. 🙂

          I no longer expect S/E HEA after the book ending. I agree there could be no HEAs at all at the end of TB Right now, I am very confused about what TB is, or what it was ever intended to be. I agree with Kat that creative endeavor is open to the interpretation of the audience. That’s the price creators “pay” when they release their work for public consumption. The creators can’t force the audience to feel a certain way. We can smell a retcon a million miles away, lol. Personally, if I were a professional writer, I would be SO happy and grateful if one of my characters/creations resonated in such a positive way with so many people. I would do what I organically wanted to do with my work, of course, but if so many people felt the same positive way about one of my characters, even if that is not what I originally intended with my work, I would at least think a little about it and want to know WHY people love him so much. I wouldn’t try to destroy the character just to flip the bird at the audience for falling in love with the “wrong” guy. That’s not my style. 🙂

  4. Reblogged this on Ponderings of a lost daughter and commented:
    Yay! I’m glad she’s back in!

  5. I don’t think falling in love with Eric Northman was what the show wanted, and tried it’s best to prevent, but it wasn’t a happy accident either. In my experience the vast majority of book readers fell in love with Eric too. Despite what she who shall not be named and the show did to him, the character resonated with the people. He struck a nerve and we loved him for it. We found in him something we were looking for and held on tight. The show and his creator didn’t see that comming. That’s the best and worst thing about creative endevor. No matter what the intent of the creator, the work is open to the interprtation of the audience. We take from it what we see and feel. Apparently that really pisses off some creators.

    • Yeah, which makes no sense. They are the ones who wrote Eric the way they did and made it easy to love him, so really, if they didn’t want that, they could have chosen to write him differently. It’s all on them, now they’re just being vindictive by deliberately trying to destroy him. It won’t work with me, no matter what they do.

  6. well at least we get a cameo i really liked rogue in the first and second movie. so yeah totally bummed it’s just a cameo but i’m glad it’s something
