Logan: Watch 11-Year-Old Dafne Keen's Amazing Audition With Hugh Jackman

Logan reunites Hugh Jackman with The Wolverine director James Mangold and also stars Patrick Stewart, Boyd Holbrook, Richard E. Grant, Stephen Merchant, Dafne Keen, Eriq La Salle, Elizabeth Rodriguez and Elise Neal. Fans will get an opportunity to revisit the blockbuster's bleak brand of mutant mayhem when it arrives on home video later this month - and we have an exclusive deleted scene from that forthcoming package, which adds another stomach-punching moment to James Mangold's critical and commercial hit. It turns out, she showed that same level of ability way back in her audition tape/screen test with Hugh Jackman, even going toe-to-toe with Wolvie in an improvised version of the scene that made the final cut.

But the video revealed that this was the scene that was given to the young actress during the auditions and she reenacted as though she was filming for the movie. Watch her outstanding acting chops (or should that be claws?) here...

"How do you have an 11-year-old character who doesn't speak in 90 pages?" Between Keen, Jackman, and Stewart, it was more than prepared.

Veteran crime reporter Javier Valdez killed in Mexico
Mexico is one of the most risky places to be a journalist, with the vast majority of attacks on the press unpunished. His brother Rafael said Valdez had not indicated whether he had been working on any particular investigation lately.


Talking to EW during the Logan cover story, Jackman shared how nervous he was about structuring the movie around a child actor. How does this happen? The upcoming black-and-white version of James Mangold's Logan will be available in select theaters tomorrow for one night only, but it will also be available on 4K and Blu-ray (if you pick up the film in 4K, then Logan Noir will also be in 4K). Would you like to see her reprise her role as Laura/X-23 in future X-Men movies?

Logan releases on digital HD today (May 16) and on DVD and Blu-ray on May 23. "She was really a remarkable discovery".
