Jennifer Lawrence Chats Mystique's Evolution in X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST

By Amirose Eisenbach November 15, 2013

The wonderful Jennifer Lawrence is at the height of her game. An Oscar under her belt, an incredible slew of films coming out and the love and respect of critics and fans alike for being a class act. She will next been seen in "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire", reprising her role as the strong yet vulnerable Katniss Everdeen. We will also be reunited with her portrayal of another fantastic femme fatale as Raven/Mystique in Bryan Singer's "X-Men: Days of Future Past".

The character of Mystique is a fascinating one indeed and we got a taste of her backstory in Matthew Vaughn's "X-Men: First Class". She was originally a friend and companion to Professor Xavier (James McAvoy) before eventually embracing her dark side and going over to Magneto's (Michael Fassbender) team. We got a glimpse of the evil assassin Mystique in Singer's earlier "X-Men" films, as played by Rebecca Romijin. Now Lawrence reveals that we will start to see even more of the evolution of the character with this new film.

Lawrence stated, "We find Raven, she's split off from Eric and Charles and she's kind of her own agent. She has one mission of trying to assassinate somebody and it will be her first kill basically, and because we've seen her in the future and what she becomes and this is kind of a turning point for her."
