The actor-director due answered interesting questions asked to them by fans.
Logan director Mangold shared a tweet in which he is all praises for Daphne Keen. He tweeted, “There’s no way this film works w/o the remarkable Daphne Keen. By the film’s 2nd half, the tables have turned & she is carrying the entire movie as Logan has retreated in sickness & self doubt. & of course, she holds the final frame. #Logan #QuarantineWatchParty
Hugh Jackman revealed Dafne had punched him during her first audition. But that worked in her favour as that’s when he thought she was the perfect one to play X-23 in Logan. He shared, “When @mang0ld came up w the character of Laura, and that the movie was in essence about family we were worried about finding the right fit. Until we met @DafneKeen. The first day we auditioned her … she punched me in the arm so hard, I was literally bruised the next day. Hired.”
