Famke Jannsen Wants Jean Grey Role

After the ‘X –Men: Days of Future Past’ there is another series coming to theatres titled ‘X- Men: Apocalypse’ on May 27th this year.
The film has undergone changes and will have new characters played by new people. 
Alexandra Shipp will be playing ‘Storm’ while Tye Sheridan will act as Scott Summers aka ‘Cyclops’. Sophie Turner will be portraying Jean Grey.
Famke Jannsen, who essayed Jean Grey earlier, was miffed with the re-casting but she is glad that there are changes happening. It seems Sophie had contacted Famke about the role for some help but the latter had assured her she was good to go.
Famke is excited to see the movie without her participation in it this time and says she does miss her role but she can accept the change.
The actress claims that there is sexism in the casting as men are kept on for older roles but women aren’t. Younger actors are picked up and cast instead.
Hopefully, the film series cast the original Jean Grey one more time.
