Sophie Turner has teased she "sold herself" to Hugh Jackman when asked if she will star in 'Wolverine 3' as Jean Grey and didn't rule it out

Sophie Turner has teased she could reprise her role as Jean Grey in 'Wolverine 3'.

The 20-year-old actress stars as telepathic and telekinetic mutant Jean Grey - aka Phoenix - in 'X-Men: Apocalypse' and when quizzed on whether her second round as the character could be in Hugh Jackman's final outing as Wolverine, she didn't rule it out.

Quizzed on whether she'd been asked to star in the film, to be released in 2017, she teased: "I've sold myself to him!"

Sophie added she was "such a fan" of working with Hugh, 47, and had an "awesome" time shooting the 20th Century Fox movie with the heartthrob.

She said: "Amazing because he's such an icon in the 'X-Men' universe and I was such a fan doing it. Everyone wants a scene with Wolverine. Just seeing Hugh Jackman work is inspiring."

Sophie stars alongside Jennifer Lawrence as Mystique, James McEvoy as Professor X, Michael Fassbender as Magneto, Alexandra Shipp as Storm and Nicholas Hoult as Beast in 'X-Men: Apocalypse'.

The actress - who rose to fame in 'Game of Thrones' as Sansa Stark - told HeyUGuys: "I just watched the movies. I did my research online but for the Phoenix stuff I thought the movies were the best thing to draw from. In terms of building up the character, we didn't want her to feel on the edge of letting go, we wanted her to seem so repressed, you saw no hints of the real power that she has except for when maybe she's like, having a nightmare, but we didn't want any flashy things until the final moment."

Grey-haired, boozy and ailing, Logan (Jackman) is caring for the now elderly Charles Xavier (Stewart) when he encounters a young mutant girl, Laura (Keen). A glorious swansong for Wolverine; the world-weary tone, low-key setting and ballsy climax really impress. First class.
