1998 to 2000. Romijn, a polyglot, is fluent in French and Portuguese.

In 2000's X-Men, Romijn
had her first major movie role as "Mystique"; she returned to the role in 2003's
sequel X2: X-Men United, and again for X-Men: The Last Stand (2006). In these
movies her costume consisted of blue makeup and some strategically placed
prosthetics on her otherwise nude body. In X2: X-Men United she shows up in a
bar in one scene in her "normal" look, and also in X-Men: The Last Stand, she
appears as a dark-haired "de-powered" Mystique.
She had her first
leading role in Brian De Palma's Femme Fatale (2002). She also has starred in
movies such as Rollerball, The Punisher and Godsend.
She played the leading
role in Pepper Dennis, a short-lived TV series on The WB. This series showcased

regular, where she'll play the elusive "Mystery Woman". She'll make her
appearance during the February 2007 sweeps period.
