Jean Grey is one of the most alluring characters in the X-Men roster. She made her Marvel Comics debut back in 1963 alongside the rest of the super-team of mutants, and she has since become a popular fixture of the Marvel Universe.

From her telepathic abilities to how she harnesses the Phoenix Force, Jean has found herself at the center of many legendary stories throughout her existence. Perhaps none of them are quite as famous (or controversial) as the Dark Phoenix storyline - a storyline so major that it has been adapted in the Fox film series twice now (both times with mixed results).

Speaking of the X-Men movies, Jean Grey made her live-action debut in the Fox saga, in which she was portrayed by Famke Janssen. When the franchise decided to go back in time (or, well, a different timeline... comic book movies are confusing, okay), Sophie Turner was cast as a younger version of Jean, allowing us to see some of her origins.

But those weren't the only two versions of Jean we've seen on the screen, so with that in mind, let's dive into the character's movie and TV history and find out who played her the best.
