    Ellen Page: Kitty Pryde (X3)
    [​IMG]

    *Ellen Page IMDB Profile [Click Here]

    *Ellen Page Talks X3:

    “It’s just so huge,” she says. “It just blows my mind. I’m so used to doing tough, intense material in like 18 days or 24 days, for not much money. It’s truly the complete opposite of anything I’ve ever done.”

    Onscreen, in often challenging roles in films like Marion Bridge and the upcoming Hard Candy, Page has the fierce gravity of a Holly Hunter or, closer to her own age bracket, a Jena Malone. In person, the diminutive teen—the five feet of her dressed in jeans, a maroon thrift store t-shirt, an army-green newsboy cap and weathered orange Converse—is laidback, polite and unassuming. She speaks confidently and evenly. The tensest moment comes when she protests a complimentary coffee.

    In X-Men 3, Page plays Kitty Pryde, who popped up briefly in the respective forms of Sumela Kay and Katie Stuart in the first two films. “She can run through walls, and grab people and pull them through walls,” says Page, wrapping her hands around a mug of French roast. “Not very flashy—it’s kind of the humble defensive power.”

    Her background knowledge of the X-Men story is limited, so she’s been reading up. She knows “people will just kill you if you don’t do it to justice.” But beyond the long, choppy, auburn extensions seamlessly woven into her short brown locks, there’s nothing left for Page to do until she lands on the west...[Continued]

    Lord. I know this is mean, and I think she will probably hopefully do Kitty justice, but what is with her forehead? I seriously hope it's just distorted or something that pic, because that's a huge forehead.

    What is the extent of Kitty's role in this?

    Pretty much, she seems to be serving as a ''homewrecker", way of breaking up Bobby/Rogue.

    Katie Stuart: Kitty Pryde (X2)
    [​IMG]

    *Katie Stuart's Official Website [Click Here]

    *Katie Stuart Article From the X2 Days:

    A Vancouver native best known for her stint on the TV series "The Crow: Stairway to Heaven," Stuart still isn't sure how she snagged her current role, which was played in the first film by Sumela Kay. "I've never met the girl, but I feel bad about it," Stuart says. "I'm assuming that she looks older than Kitty Pryde should. I'm 18, but I still pull off 14 pretty well."

    Except when she straightens her naturally wavy hair, as she did during preproduction. The unexpected side effect: She resembled co-star Anna Paquin. "I almost didn't get the part because they thought that I looked too much like her," says Stuart, who quickly reverted to her original coif.

    You'd think she'd have more job security, having worked with Professor X himself, Patrick Stewart, in the 1997 flick "Masterminds." But Stuart's more interested in sharing the screen with another "X2" actor: Daniel Cudmore. In the comic, Colossus and Kitty were once romantically involved -- a fact that clearly intrigues the 5-foot-2 actress. "I don't think I'd have any problems doing that," she purrs, sounding more vixen than kitten. "I might need a footstool, but we could pull it off." [Source]

    I picked up the second issue of the new miniseries "Kitty Pryde: Shadow & Flame," and I must say, it's a very good read.

    BTW: Katie Stewart is just...blecch. I thought Sumela was a good Kitty, but I'm excited to see how Ellen does.

    Yes. Sumela really looks Kittyesque to me for some reason. I loved her small but effect cameo in X1. She even talked in a sweet spoken tone that I imagine Kitty would talk in.

    I'm still interested to see how they are going to work her in seeing that they already essentially gave alot of her comic personality to the movieverse Rogue. I just hope they go straight to her excalibur days and later, sarcastic almost *****like character that again sees being a superhero as more of a curse than a blessing. Considering the other characters added it would fit the flow with angel and beast.

    The good thing is that the three Kitty actresses are not that dissimilar... you can almost morph Sumela into Katie into Ellen and imagine that the person just got older.... I was really worried about the fact that three people had played this part, but seeing the pictures together actually makes me feel the actresses have been well-chosen, even though Sumela seemed more grown-up than Katie in X2...

    yeah except for the fact that Sumela looks around 17, Katie looks 12, and then Ellen looks 15...not really a good morph.

    I think that Sumela was the best for the role. But I am optimistic about Ellen!

    You are just here to disagree so i expect that from you.

    In my opinion, they have facial resemblances - even Katie's forehead is quite like Ellen's. I can't see how you can say they look such a specific age. These days people's looks and ages can be wildly different. Sumela might only look older because of her hairstyle.

    But, then you will disagree, because that's you. And I am getting used to it.

    I am not sure what particular issue you have with me, but I am here to stay, or come and go as i please.

    My opinion is mine. And not about to be changed by you.

    As for maturity, you - aged 16 or 17 - is telling me about maturity, when i am more than twice your age? Get real.

    Of course it is, because I am more mature. That's obvious. It's a fact because I am older.

    I am still not sure what issue you have with me. Would you care to spell out what your problem is?

    just because you are older than someone does not mean your more mature...
