LOS ANGELES, SEPTEMBER 29, 2015 — (UPI) — Anna Paquin won’t appear as Rogue in Marvel’s forthcoming Gambit solo movie.
The 33-year-old actress revealed as much Sunday on Twitter by simply responding “no” when asked if she will star in the film. Paquin portrayed the character in X-Men, X2 and X-Men: The Last Stand.
Some expected the star to appear in Gambit because Rogue is a traditional love interest in the comics. Rogue, however, is linked to Iceman (Shawn Ashmore) in the X-Men movies, and Gambit’s love interest will be Bella Donna Boudreaux (Lea Seydoux) in the standalone.
Paquin is best known for playing Sookie Stackhouse on HBO series True Blood, which came to a close after seven seasons in 2014. She will voice Ramsey in upcoming Disney film The Good Dinosaur, and portray Nancy Holt in History’s forthcoming Roots miniseries.
