List of X-Men films cast members
The following is a list of cast members who have portrayed characters appearing in the X-Men film series, based upon the comic books of the same name. Hugh Jackman is the only actor to have appeared in all seven films: he played Wolverine in the original trilogy and reprised his role in the prequel films X-Men Origins: Wolverine and X-Men: First Class, the latter in a cameo appearance. He will again star in The Wolverine and X-Men: Days of Future Past. Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, Famke Janssen, Halle Berry, Anna Paquin, Rebecca Romijn, James Marsden and Shawn Ashmore have also appeared in all three films of the original trilogy, with Stewart also making a cameo appearance in X-Men Origins, Romijn in X-Men: First Class and Janssen in The Wolverine.
The film also features numerous cameo appearances from characters in the comic book. Sometimes the role of a cameo character in one film is expanded in the next. The character of Kitty Pryde, for example, has been played by a different actress in each film, as she only cameoed in the first two films before graduating to becoming an X-Man in the third film, where she is played by Ellen Page.
The list is sorted by film and character, because of multiple actors portraying the same role, sometimes in flashbacks to when they were a child. The characters are divided by their primary allegiance, and listed in order when they first appeared in the series.
- (y) indicates the actor portrayed the role in a flashback scene as a child.
- Italics indicate a cameo appearance.
- A dark grey cell indicates the character was not in the film.
