Stranger Things

Logan: Millie Bobby Brown, who broke out with her performance in Stranger Things (above) last year, says that she auditioned for Logan during production of the series: “I was like, ‘It’s going to be amazing, I’m going to really prepare,’ and I sat in my room reading the lines. Honestly, for me, I felt so — I felt an actor, in the audition room, hitting Hugh Jackman and [director] James Mangold sitting right in front of me.” Brown complimented Dafne Keen, who won the role of Laura (aka X-23): “She was incredible.” [Variety]
