Stranger Things breakout star, Millie Bobby Brown recently told Variety that she auditioned in front of Hugh Jackman for a role in Wolverine’s final film, Logan.
During an interview which was part of Variety‘s “Actors on Actors” series, she told Evan Rachel Wood that she read for the role of Laura Kinney/X-23 in the James Mangold directed flick.
Brown had this to say about the audition process, “I was like, ‘It’s going to be amazing, I’m going to really prepare,’ and I sat in my room reading the lines,” she said. “Honestly, for me, I felt so — I felt an actor, in the audition room, hitting Hugh Jackman, and James Mangold sitting right in front of me.”
