UPDATE #2: The Logan trailer has confirmed that Dafne Keen is actually the one playing X-23 in the film, as confirmed with set photos as well. As we originally suspected it looks like Sienna Novikov might be handling stunts in the film.

It looks like the young actress playing the little girl spotted on the set of Wolverine 3 aka Logan, might be actress, gymnast and fencer Sienna Novikov.

There is some evidence this role is Laura Kinney aka X-23.

Her previous credits include low level work on Bad Moms and Daddy’s Home.

The key part there is her background in fencing and gymnastics, key things a young actress playing X-23 would need to have in their back-pocket.

It’s equally possible she just did the stunt work for this character as well.

However, it’s noticeable that the actress seen in set photos looks a little different than Sienna.

Again, it’s possible she was doing stunts for the young character, either way she is “most likely” playing X-23.

There’s also the possibility that Sienna is playing another character (fellow clone of Laura or child Weapon X attempt?),  or that the young actress on set is playing someone other than Laura. Spoiler images from the set could equally suggest that the girl spotted on set might not be X-23 after all.

The Wrap recently reported the young mutant with two claws would be mentored by Wolverine in the film.

Her official IMDB page lists her role in the film as mutant girl and includes a photo of herself on the set with Hugh Jackman. Keep in mind, Sienna might not have put her name to the photo and it might not be actually her in it.

We’ll have to wait for some official confirmation from James Mangold or the official Instagram account.

Logan is set for release on March 3rd, 2017.
