Anna Paquin is an actress who some entertainment observers look at as an ideal gorgeous, bad-ass, character for a film project so there was not much surprise from insiders about what the beautiful actress said in response to a question from a fan on her social media Twitter page about her future in the X-Men franchise.
The fan asked if she would be returning to the X-Men franchise and the talented actress responded that if and hopefully when she comes back to the franchise she wants to return as a "badass Rogue not a shy teen Rogue" (Venture Capital Post - May 7). This answer makes complete sense to some entertainment observers considering the comic book storyline and the type of characters that she seems to prefer to play.
When some entertainment observers and casting agents think of Anna Paquin the image is of a strong personality, almost an alpha female. A shy Rogue is a character that this actress has likely outgrown and considering that she likely has a large number of choices available to her after her impressive performance as Sookie Stackhouse in "True Blood" which still resonates in the minds of many entertainment fans and probably more than a few filmmakers.
The non-politically correct response from Anna Paquin about how she would prefer to return to the X-Men franchise has some entertainment observers wondering if she was sending a not-so-subtle 'message' to the producers of the X-men franchise and potential filmmakers whom might be interested in her as a feature actress that she has no desire to play a 'weak' character in her future roles.
Anna Paquin is an actress who is not averse to expressing her opinions and her fearless, no filter attitude is one of the many reasons she is so popular with fans as an actress and to some filmmakers in Hollywood who are probably now even more interested in her as a feature actress for their upcoming projects.
