Jean Grey Actress Sophie Turner Defines Her Character as Insecure but Powerful

~Matt Key Jean Grey has already been seen in the X-Men films, played by Famke Janssen, to be a very powerful mutant mostly in control of her telepathic and telekinetic powers. However, she was the adult version of Jean Grey, who’d spent her entire life dealing with her powers, learning her limits, and training with Professor X to control her powers. X-Men 3: The Last Stand doesn’t count, so don’t even think about that one. Days of Future Past was, if nothing else, an excuse to erase that travesty of a film from the mythology.

But the beginning of something new would start for me that year that would inexplicably impact the rest of my life — the premiere of the X-Men Animated Series.
