Stunt doubles can be used for action heavy set pieces but they can also be used for the most mundane things as well. There's a possibility a very high one that Famke could be in an action scene, but there is no guarantee. Thus my original post about her stunt double being cast not meaning that Jean will obviously be involved in an action scene.
Yeah, perhaps it's to reduce the amount of time Famke has to be on set (if she is indeed in the movie...here's hoping).
If she is in the movie, I suspect it will be announced next month as part of the publicity for The Wolverine, to increase hype for that film.
