Turner's take on the character was different from the version portrayed in the first three films. "Basically the Jean Grey you saw in the first three movies is totally different to the Jean Grey you’ll see in this movie," Turner told "Just Jared." She added, "This Jean is very vulnerable and alienated because she is so powerful that she can’t control her powers. She almost alienates herself as well because she’s scared of herself and she just wants to be a normal teenager. So this movie is about her finding a kindred spirit and then also coming to terms with her powers and figuring out how to use them."

Turner told "Just Jared" that she totally lost it in front of the Biebs. "I mean I didn’t meet him; I was in the same vicinity as him," she said. "I was in a circle of people and I saw him. I like collapsed and held onto my friend and I was shaking and I was like, 'It’s Justin.' And then he walked away. So next time he’ll be like, 'Who the fuck is that freak? That’s the one that collapsed!'”
