SL TRIB: ‘X-Men’ actress Famke Janssen opens up to fans at Utah’s Salt Lake Comic Con


(Salt Lake Tribune) Though Salt Lake Comic Con is famous for bringing cosplayers of all types to the city, it’s also a place where fans can get to know the people who bring characters to life.

A Saturday morning Q&A event featured one such celebrity, Famke Janssen, who’s famous for playing roles like Jean Gray in the “X-Men” series and Xenia Onatopp in the 1995 James Bond movie “GoldenEye.”

After moderator Bryan Young interviewed Janssen, audience members were permitted to ask questions ranging from which co-star was a better kisser to whether her teeth were real. (They are.)

Janssen shared with the crowd of about 1,600 people experiences she’d had throughout her career. Part of a video clip used for Janssen’s introduction showed her with Patrick Stewart early in her career on the set of “Star Trek: The Next Generation.”
