Personal Quote:

When I entered this business I think people looked at me and said, 'Here's a young, good-looking guy. He should play the romantic lead.' So I played the jock, I played those parts, and it was a good thing. But, over time, as I've gotten older, I realize I have a lot more fun as an actor when I'm doing other things. The more character-driven the role, the better. See more »


He wore lifts for most of his scenes in the X-Men movies, because his character Cyclops is supposed to be 6' 3" compared to a 5' 3" Wolverine. In actuality, Marsden is under 6 feet tall, slightly shorter than Famke Janssen (as his love interest, (Jean Grey) and approximately 4 inches inches shorter than Hugh Jackman (who played Wolverine).
