It looks like Anna Paquin will not be making an appearance in the upcoming Marvel movie, "X-Men: Days of Future Past."

As first reported by Entertainment Weekly, the "True Blood" star's mutant persona, Rogue, was left on the cutting room floor. Director Bryan Singer revealed that he had axed a rescue scene involving Magneto, Professor X, Iceman and -- you guessed it -- Rogue, from the final film. Unfortunately for Paquin, this was only scene that included her character.

Singer explained the situation to EW.com:

“It’s a really good sequence and it will probably end up on the DVD so people can see it. But like many things in the editing process, it was an embarrassment of riches and it was just one of the things that had to go ... Even though she’s in the materials and part of the process of making the film, she won’t appear in it.”

Singer explained that the cut had nothing to do with Paquin's acting, and that he would love to work with her in the future. Like a gentleman, Singer has already informed Paquin of the situation and says she "completely understood."

According to HitFix, however. there's still a chance Paquin could end up seeing some screen time after the film's upcoming reshoots.
