Jennifer Lawrence recently visited Shriners Hospitals for Children in Montreal. She reportedly took a break from her “X-Men: Apocalypse” shooting schedule to pay a surprise visit. In the pictures, posted by the hospital on Facebook, the 24-year-old actress was seen posing with the children and hospital staff. In one of the pictures, she was seen writing on a young boy's hand cast.
Lawrence appeared to be in a happy mood in the pictures, which were captioned as, “A very special visitor stopped by our Canada hospital today. Jennifer Lawrence is in Montreal filming a new movie and she made time to visit some of our #ShrinersCanada kids and staff. Everyone had a great time!"
The actress reprises her role as the shape-shifting mutant Mystique in “X-Men: Apocalypse.” According to screenwriter Simon Kinberg, her relationship with the Beast will be explored.
“The relationship between Beast and Mystique is a really an interesting one that we didn’t have a lot of time to explore in ‘Days of Future Past’ so we’ll have an opportunity to do more of that in ‘Apocalypse,' ” he told Variety.
In the film, Mystique is a child of Erik and Charles and has a really interesting personality, an aspect that can be further explored in the film. “She grew up with Charles and then she sort of became a woman with Erik, so her being the cross-pollination, if you will, of those two philosophies and those two men is something we can explore in the movie, too,” Kinberg said.
In 2014’s “X-Men: Days Of Future Past,” Mystique was shown impersonating Stryker and taking custody of Logan. Bryan Singer is directing “X-Men: Apocalypse” and it centers on Apocalypse/En Sabah Nur. The cast of the film also includes James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Oscar Isaac, Nicholas Hoult, Rose Byrne, Olivia Munn, Evan Peters, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Sophie Turner, Tye Sheridan, Alexandra Shipp, Lucas Till, Josh Helman, Lana Condor and Ben Hardy.
It opens May 27.
