Stranger Things star Millie Bobby Brown has revealed she missed out on the chance to play Wolverine’s clone in Logan.
The 13-year-old actress, who shot to fame as oddball Eleven in the hit Netflix series, auditioned for the role of Laura Kinney in front of Hugh Jackman and director James Mangold – and thought she’d nailed the part.
In a new Variety Actor on Actors series chat with Evan Rachel Wood, she explains, “I was like, ‘It’s going to be amazing, I’m going to really prepare’, and I sat in my room reading the lines… I felt like an actor, in the audition room, hitting Hugh Jackman, and James Mangold sitting right in front of me.”
The role of X-23 eventually went to 11-year-old Dafne Keen, and after seeing Logan, Brown accepts Mangold made the right choice.
“She was incredible,” she said.
Jackman was obviously impressed – he recently suggested Keen should take over as Wolverine now he has hung up his X-Men claws for good.
Meanwhile, Brown is excited for the second season of Stranger Things and her first movie, Godzilla: King of the Monsters, which is set for a 22 March, 2019 release.
“It’s my first movie,” she gushed. “I’m really excited and that’s really all I can say, but it’s going to be great!”
