“As negotiations were happening, there was definitely some communication over what the broad strokes of the character will be and what the storyline is so I have an idea,” he says. “I do specifically know what my part is in broad strokes. I can’t wait. I’m so excited. The fact that not only do we get to reunite and play around with a lot of the actors from the original three [films] but also these two worlds combining is kind of incredible.” Recalling being initially cast as Pyro in the original X-Men movie, Shawn Ashmore says, “My character’s name was John, which was the Pyro character. Then as we were shooting I got new pages one day and it said, ‘Your name has been changed. You’re a different character now.’ All I could think was, ‘Oh man I must have screwed up. I guess they don’t like me or they’re changing the part.’ And I read Bobby and it was the scene where I make the ice rose for Rogue. So that was an interesting change. Now, all these years later I get to play this character.” With True Blood actress Anna Paquin reprising her X-Men Rogue role as well, Ashmore adds that “I know,” Days of Future Past explores Rogue and Bobby’s relationship. “They’re constantly having these relationship issues so we’ll see what happens.”
