Fans of Anna Paquin 's mutant X-Men superhero character might be disappointed to learn that she will not be seen in the upcoming movie. Bryan Singer confirmed to Entertainment Weekly that the scene featuring the True Blood starlet has been cut from the final film. The rescue sequence, which was shot early in the film's production, featured Paquin as well as Magneto (Ian McKellen), Professor X (Patrick Stewart) and Iceman (Shawn Ashmore). This was the only scene in the highly anticipated film with the Oscar winner. "Through the editing process, the sequence became extraneous," Singer told the magazine. "Even though she's in the materials and part of the process of making the film, she won't appear in it," Singer said of Paquin.
