Wanted my 'X-Men' character to be darker: Jennifer Lawrence

5 years ago

London: Actress Jennifer Lawrence says she wanted her villainous character of 'Mystique' in 'X-Men' franchise to be more notorious.


The 23-year-old Oscar-winner, who plays the blue-hued mutant shape shifter in the sci-fi film, said she often contemplated going off-script for the darker scenes, reported Contactmusic.


"I was struggling back and forth with wanting to get darker... There was one scene where I couldn't get past thinking she'd shoot someone where she doesn't in the script. We filmed it both ways, but I don't know which one they'll use," Lawrence said.


The 'Silver Linings Playbook' star, who would be next seen in 'X-Men: Days of Future Past', said she was delighted after learning that Bryan Singer was going to direct to the project.


"It was amazing! There was a tiny fan boy inside of me jumping up and down and screaming when he decided to direct," she said. PTI
