“Days of Future Past” Regrettably Says Goodbye to Anna Paquin’s Rogue

The enormous cast of mutants for X-Men: Days of Future Past just got a little smaller. Sadly Anna Paquin’s mutant character, Rogue, had her “one and only scene” cut out of the final film. The actress has appeared in all of the first three films and played the role quite well. This was in no part Paquin’s fault though. As the film’s director Bryan Singer explains to Entertainment Weekly – “She was awesome in the sequence. She’s a brilliant actress. I would work with her in a heartbeat.” The resulting film will no doubt be epic, though it would have been nice to have gotten the whole cast.

Through the editing process, the sequence became extraneous,” explains Singer. “It’s a really good sequence and it will probably end up on the DVD so people can see it. 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………It’s very disappointing, but she’s very professional and she knows that stuff happens, particularly with material you shoot early on in production. Films evolve.
