Sophie Turner, who stars as Phoenix in the film series ‘X-Men’, has said that she would relish the opportunity to reprise her role in the future.
“I don’t even know what the deal is, whether Disney wants to continue on the ‘X-Men’ journey. I would always be down to go back to that character and that cast and that experience ... We had the best time on those movies. I would kill to go back,” she said in a video chat seen on Twitter.
Turner, who is reportedly pregnant with her first child, is currently starring in the TV series ‘Survive’, where she plays a survivor of a plane crash who has to make it back to civilisation.
She hopes the new show will make those suffering with mental illness feel “less alone”.
Turner said: “What drew me to the script was the way that mental illness was written so accurately in my opinion. It felt real to me. I also loved the notion that this girl who wanted to die so badly ends up fighting for a life that she never wanted to live in the first place.”
She also feels ‘Survive’ will help to make people feel less alone. “I hope that the story of this girl finding something to live for helps others find the ability to do that, too,” she said.
