​​Director Bryan Singer has found some fresh blood to embody younger versions of mutants Jean Grey, Storm and Cyclops for the upcoming “X-Men: Age of Apocalypse,” and one of them is “Game of Thrones” star Sophie Turner. Turner, who plays snooty Sansa Stark on the hit HBO series, will take on the role originated by Famke Janssen in the original 2000 “X-Men” film. Also joining the cast are Tye Sheridan as Cyclops and singer Alexandra Shipp as Storm. While Janssen, Halle Berry and James Marsden appeared in their roles for last year’s “Days of Future Past,” the next installment in the “X-Men” franchise follows the earlier timeline headed up by Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy and Jennifer Lawrence. Sorry, guys!
