In a recent interview with Evan Rachel Wood as part of Variety‘s “Actors on Actors” series, 13-year-old actress Millie Bobby Brown revealed that not only did she audition for the role of Laura Kinney, aka X-23, in “Logan,” but she considers it her best audition to date.
There are similarities between the role she plays on Netflix’s hit series “Stranger Things” and the role of X-23 in the superhero movie. Both are young kids being used by the government for their special powers. Although Brown didn’t land the role — it went to 11-year-old Dafne Keen — she said auditioning for Hugh Jackman and James Mangold made her feel like a true actress.
Of Keen’s performance, Brown said “I watched it; she was incredible. It meant so much to me.”
