Anna Paquin has been cut from the upcoming film, X-Men: Days of Future Past. Known for her role as Marie–and her alter-ego Rogue–Paquin was featured in just one sequence in the not-yet-released film. When editing took place, however, that sequence had to be cut. Director Bryan Singer spoke recently about the decision.

“Through the editing process, the sequence became extraneous. It’s a really good sequence and it will probably end up on the DVD so people can see it. But like many things in the editing process, it was an embarrassment of riches and it was just one of the things that had to go,” he said. “Unfortunately, it was the one and only sequence Anna Paquin was in, the Rogue character was in. Even though she’s in the materials and part of the process of making the film, she won’t appear in it.”

This is certainly disappointing to fans of Anna Paquin and her character–and likely to the actor herself. X-Men: Days of Future Past also stars Hugh Jackman, Sir Patrick Stewart and Sir Ian McKellen. It will hit theaters some time in 2014.

Anna Paquin is also known for her role as Sookie Stackhouse in the HBO series True Blood. She won a Golden Globe for the role back in 2009.

Is X-Men: Days of Future Past on your list of must-see films for 2014? Are you disappointed to learn that Anna Paquin won’t grace the big screen in her reprised role?

    I wished they had used Rouebeta in thoe movies. It always seemed like she was useless, except when she was in the first film. But even then she was only a pawn for Magneto. Her character needed more depth. In the comics and the 90′s animated series, Rogue was able to fly and had super strength that she absorbed from other mutants. All im sayin is that she shoulda gotten into the action in those movies.
