Anna Paquin to ‘Cameo’ in ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’

Although director Bryan Singer said back in December that Anna Paquin wouldn’t appear in the upcoming “X-Men: Days Of Future Past,” it looks like her character Rogue will be in the movie, after all.

A Fox rep told BuzzFeed that Paquin will return to the the film. “Essentially, [it’s] a cameo,” the rep said.

Paquin’s name can be seen in the credits of the latest “Days of Future Past” trailer. She appeared in the first three movies of the growing franchise.

Because the movie combines the casts of the original “X-Men” trilogy (including Hugh Jackman, Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart) with those of 2011’s “First Class” (Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender and James McAvoy), Singer said late last year that he had a lot of content and characters to tackle in the editing process.

He therefore cut Paquin’s only scene, a rescue sequence shot early in production with McKellen, Stewart and Shawn Ashmore (Iceman), when it proved to be “extraneous.”

“It’s a really good sequence and it will probably end up on the DVD so people can see it,” Singer told Entertainment Weekly. “But like many things in the editing process, it was an embarrassment of riches and it was just one of the things that had to go. Unfortunately, it was the one and only sequence Anna Paquin was in, the Rogue character was in. Even though she’s in the materials and part of the process of making the film, she won’t appear in it.”

The movie hits theaters on May 23.
