Dafne Keen was absolutely perfect as Laura Kinney, a.k.a. X-23, in Logan, a role that made her an instant Hollywood star. However, it all could have played out very differently.

In an interview on Variety's Actors on Actors series, 's Evan Rachel Wood asked Stranger Things actress Millie Bobby Brown about her best and worst auditions. The actress, known for her potrayal of Eleven on Netflix's hit series, revealed that she could have been the daughter to Hugh Jackman's famous mutant:

"The best audition for me was Wolverine. I went for Logan. I went for the little girl."

She also mentioned how auditioning for Logan made her feel like a professional:

"I was like, 'It's going to be amazing, I’m going to really prepare,' and I sat in my room reading the lines. And honestly, for me, I felt so ... I felt an actor."

Millie even got to audition with Logan himself, Hugh Jackman, for the part:

"In the audition room , hitting Hugh Jackman, and like ... James Mangold right in front of me. I was like 'oh my goodness.'

Now, we finally know the real reason behind Hugh Jackman's excitement on seeing Millie at the MTV Awards 2017.

Fortunately, Millie Bobby Brown doesn't have any hard feelings about not getting the role — she even praised Dafne Keen's performance in Logan:

"I watched it. She was incredible."

Millie even shared a picture of her with Dafne Keen on Instagram, calling her "the coolest girl in town," when they met at they met at MTV Awards 2017.

We can only wonder what Logan could have been like had Millie Bobby Brown played X-23. That being said, Dafne Keen did a wonderful job — and if Millie got the part, Hollywood would have been deprived of Keen's acting talents.
