Dutch ac­tor Famke Janssen (right) won many hearts with her por­trayal of Jean Grey in the X men film se­ries, and would love to play the role again. The 52-year-old ac­tor, who played the tele­pathic and tele­ki­netic mu­tant in the fran­chise, said the role has been an ever-giv­ing gift.

“Jean Grey is a part of me. I would def­i­nitely come back to play her when­ever they ask me. It’s the gift that keeps on, kept on giv­ing. I think we’re done, but it was re­ally great while it lasted and it lasted for a long time,” said Janssen at Den­ver Comic Con.

The ac­tor added that be­ing a part of the films was a priv­i­lege for her. Janssen fea­tured in three films from the fran­chise, X- Men, X2 and X-Men: The Last Stand. Her char­ac­ter was killed off in the third film. She also did cameos in The Wolver­ine and X-Men: Days of Fu­ture Past. Cur­rently, ac­tor So­phie Turner will star as Jean Grey in Dark Phoenix, the fourth in the “next gen­er­a­tion” se­ries fol­low­ing the first three movies, First Class, Days of Fu­ture Past and Apoca­lypse.
