Last week we learned Sophie Turner will play Jean Grey in X-MEN: APOCALYPSE, and during a conversation with Access Hollywood, the Game of Thrones actress shared her reaction to landing the role, and her thoughts on playing the mutant.

Sophie Turner says she screwed up an audition shortly after she found out she'll be playing Jean Grey.

Oh my god, so I was on my way to an audition. And I was like getting out of the car and walked in to the audition. And then my agent starts ringing and she was like 'Have you heard the news?' 'No, what news?' She was like 'Check your Twitter'. So then I checked it and… I was just getting like, 'Congratulations Jean Grey.' And then I just started crying and I messed up the whole audition because I was just like, 'I can't speak!'"

Turner goes on to say she isn't positive when filming will start for X-MEN: APOCALYPSE, and she wants mirror Famke Janssen's portrayal of Jean Grey from the previous X-MEN flicks.

She was amazing. So, I'm really trying to emulate her, because she did such a great job and I just hope I do justice to this incredible character.

Sophie turner also says "It should be fun" playing Jean Grey opposite Tye Sheridan's Scott Summers/Cyclops.

Turner is a great actress who should do a fantastic job as Jean Grey. I know she's planning on emulating Famke Janssen's Jean Grey, but I hope she will also be able to do her own thing with the character. BossLogic has created a couple of pieces of fun fan art of how Turner might look as Jean Grey (including one of her as Dark Phoenix), which you can check out below.

X-MEN: APOCALYPSE is set to hit theaters on May 27, 2016.

I hope Turner does well, but can't help but think Saoirse Ronan would've been a better fit.

My reaction to this casting

Even the photoshopped pics look like garbage. Sorry I love Sophie in GOT, but this isn't a role for her imho.

Now that's a reaction when you win something big! I'm sure she'll do the job just fine.

She's going to do a terrrifc job. I still do think that they could have done a better job with the Cyclops casting though. But I just hope we finally get some good storylines dedicated to Cyclops and Jean Grey that we haven't really gotten with the films prior (especially Cyclops).

Agreed. Both James Marsden and Cyclops were wasted in the first 3 X-MEN films. I really wanted to see the Dark Phoenix saga, and Cyclops' eventual connection with Emma Frost, played out on film.

I actually thought "WTF" with Cyclops' scene in X-Men 3 when I first watched it.
