I like the dramatic tool that is fantasy and I put period films within the category of fantasy as I would put sci-fi within that same category. I think as a dramatic tool, you leave yourself behind. Your imagination is instantly needed because it’s a world that you don’t recognize with a world you don’t know. And I think that means you have a very different emotional reaction to the characters. I think it’s no better or worse for contemporary pieces. I think in contemporary pieces, it’s about voyeurism. You bring your own experiences to life because you recognize the world. I don’t think you do that as much with the whole fantasy genre. I find that very interesting.

[Are we going to see the badass 80’s mall rat Jubilee or will her character focus more on her vulnerability and youthfulness?] We will focus more on her vulnerability and youthfulness. She’s still learning about her powers and developing them. Although I would be honoured to see the badass mall rat come more to life! She’s a kick-butty type of girl!
