Millie Bobby Brown Was Nearly X-23 In Logan
Imagine Eleven teaming up with Wolverine!
Well this would have been pretty cool! Apparently Stranger Things star Millie Bobby Brown was keen to play pint-sized maniac X-23 in recent X-film, Logan, and even got as far as auditioning for the part.
“I went for it,” said the star. “It meant so much to me. I was filming Stranger Things, and I was like, ‘This is gonna be amazing, I’m gonna really prepare,’ and I sat in my room reading the lines. And honestly, for me, I felt so – I felt an actor, in the audition room, hitting Hugh Jackman, and James Mangold [with lines] sitting right in front of me.”
As it turned out the role eventually went to Dafne Keen, and to be fair to her, she absolutely knocked it out of the park. Never has a tweenage girl severed so many limbs in a two hour period! Still, seeing Eleven team up with the Wolverine would have been the stuff of fanboy dreams...
We’ll get to see more of Millie Bobby Brown when the second season of Stranger Things drops on Netflix this Halloween. Start counting down the days…
