Personal Quote:

When I was little, I had a feeling that I was going to end up being an actress. I spent a lot of time alone, I was a very shy girl, and I would pretend I was telling someone about this new role that I got. See more »

Trivia:

Auditioned for the role of "Kitty Pryde" in X-Men: The Last Stand (2006) and had even asked Joss Whedon (who was writing Marvel's Astonishing X-Men comic book at the time and whose ideas contributed to the plot of X-Men: The Last Stand (2006)) for assistance in preparing for the part. Ultimately, the role went to Ellen Page. See more »
