The original Fox’s ‘X-Men’ film series cast is the cast that we will associate with some of the most popular Marvel characters in years to come. If you think about Storm it’s impossible not to conjure up images of Halle Berry, or associate Patric Stewart with Charles Xavier.

Famke Janssen, the actress behind the iconic Jean Grey portrayal is still the best live-action Jean Grey, despite Sophia Turner also portraying the character in the latter installments.

With ‘Deadpool 3’ release looming on the horizon and all the various rumors associated with former X-Men characters making a big comeback for Deadpool’s first foray into the MCU, it’s impossible not to wonder whether Famke will make an appearance as Jean Grey as well.

The actress herself commented on the rumors in her interview with Screengeek.

I’m not in [Deadpool & Wolverine]. No. Everybody keeps asking. So, at some point, I was like, ‘Wait, am I in Deadpool, and I just don’t know it yet?’ But, no. I’m not. No, no.

Recently, James Marsden, the actor behind Cyclops also stated that people keep stopping him on the streets to ask him whether he is in the movie, although he was a bit more coy regarding his possible appearance.

Jean Grey is perhaps Janssen’s most notable role, however, her career sees no signs of stopping anytime soon.

Famke Janssen’s notable roles include playing Serleena in ‘Men in Black II’ (2002, briefly replaced due to personal reasons), Ava Moore in ‘Nip/Tuck’ (second season), and Lenore Mills in the ‘Taken’ film series (2012, 2014). She made her directorial debut with ‘Bringing Up Bobby'(2011), and starred as Olivia Godfrey in ‘Hemlock Grove’ (Netflix series). Janssen also had recurring roles in ‘How To Get Away With Murder’ and ‘The Blacklist: Redemption,’ and appeared in films like ‘The Postcard Killings’ (2020) and ‘Redeeming Love’ (2021).
