Alexandra Shipp Talks About Storm’s Character In Interview
To think that in a little over 2 months the movie X-Men Apocalypse will be hitting theaters. With each passing day we’re getting a little more information each day. Recently actress Alexandra Shipp who will be playing Storm did an interview with Collider.com giving some details about her character.
Here’s one of the questions she answered in her interview:
Can you tell us a little bit about Storm? Or, this Storm, your Storm.
SHIPP: My Storm in particular is kind of a, well yeah, she’s the past derivative of Halle’s Storm. This Storm is a little bit different because you’re meeting her in Cairo. You’re seeing kind of a little bit of where she comes from. You’re seeing all the pain that she’s gone through. It’s not like she’s in the mansion having a great time. She’s so different from all of the other kids because they come from families. They come from some sort of love and support whereas Storm hasn’t had that since her parents died in that plane crash into the house when she was like 5.
It’s like, she’s kind of just all really messed up and the only mutants that she knows are bad mutants. The only mutants that she knows are the mutants who use their powers for stealing, or protecting thugs or whatever. It’s not like, “Oh, we’re going to save the planet”. It’s like, “Forget the planet, I need money so I’m going to distract you with some wind and then I’m going to pick pocket you.” She’s in survival mode so when she meets Apocalypse, she’s kind of like hit this revelation where she has been struggling to feel like she belongs somewhere.
