Actors Hugh Jackman, Ellen Page, James McAvoy, Sir Patrick Stewart, and producer Lauren Shuler Donner visited the set of ‘Good Morning America’ to promote ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past.’

Stewart talks about how Professor Xavier is able to return after being vaporized in ‘X-Men 3: The Last Stand,’ saying: “There’s vaporization and vaporization.” Patrick goes on to say, “Clearly you didn’t stay until the end of the credits. In these movies, you got to stay until the end of the credits because there’s always a little surprise, and that’s why I am back in this movie.” 

James McAvoy talks about what it meant to share a scene with Stewart and how it felt like a handover. “When I took over the role, I never thought for a minute we’d be in the same movie together, let alone share a scene together. And My first day happened to be Patrick’s last day on the shoot. To just get that handover, which I never had in the previous movie, but it really did feel like a kind of relay. The energy of being passed the custodian of this wise, empathetic, caring, sort of most priestly character, at times, has been handed over to this reprobate with long hair dressed in ’70s gear with a pink psychedelic shirt. It felt like, ‘You shouldn’t be doing this? This character will not be safe with me.’ But it was nice.”

Jackman talks about how he felt old working alongside the young cast. “I have never felt older in my life than being in the trailer park, which we call the base camp, with these guys, because they were running around with BB guns, shooting at each other.  And I was this far from going, ‘You youngsters, stop that! This is very unprofessional.’ I felt like the old guy, locking myself in my trailer, ‘Please don’t come and get me. Don’t shoot me. I don’t want to be shot.'”
