Maggie Grace Was Never Up for X3

TV Guide has set the record straight, talking to “Lost” executive producer Damon Lindelof and Maggie Grace herself about the rumors she would play Kitty Pryde in X-Men 3:

Let’s ask her boss, exec producer Damon Lindelof. “She’s on our show,” he told me at press tour. “That movie starts shooting [this month]. I would be an idiot to let her go do a movie in the middle [of our season].” Lindelof insists no one — including Grace herself — knows how the X3 rumors got started. “The only call she ever made to us was, ‘You’re going to read about this [in the Hollywood trades]; I don’t know what it is, it’s not true. I didn’t read for the part, I wasn’t offered the part, I didn’t accept the part. I’m happy to be on Lost.'”

Instead, Ellen Page will play the role in the third installment.
