X-Men: Apocalypse star Lana Condor recently stated that she’d like to reprise her Jubilee role so that she can finally do the character justice.
While X-Men: Apocalypse wasn’t popular with many audiences, fans were particularly disappointed that Lana Condor’s Jubilee didn’t get a prominent role that gave the character the spotlight that she deserved. Fans were originally excited to see Lana Condor’s Jubilee when the first photos of the actress in the role surfaced online. Unfortunately when X-Men: Apocalypse debuted, Lana Condor’s Jubilee only had a minor part to play.
But in a new interview with The Wrap after the release of Netflix’s To All the Boys: P.S. I Still Love You – Lana Condor revealed that she thinks now is a good time to revisit Jubilee so that she can do the character justice. The X-Men: Apocalypse star went on to say that although she hasn’t heard anything from Disney, she’s told the filmmakers that they shouldn’t forget her. Take a look at X-Men: Apocalypse star Lana Condor pushing to reprise her Jubilee role below.
“I think that now is a really good time and I would really like to do her justice because she didn’t have it five years ago and I don’t think ever has. She’s a fantastic character and now I think is the perfect time to give her what she deserves, so I would love to go back and do something with her. I haven’t [heard anything from Disney], but I did see some of the filmmakers at [the Vanity Fair Oscar party] the other night and I was like ‘Hey… don’t forget, don’t sleep on her,’”
