Australian actor Hugh Jackman visits Taiwan to promote his American superhero film “Logan”, Monday, Feb. 27, 2017.
Hugh Jackman, well-known for his “Wolverine” role in the X-Men movie series, was surrounded by nearly 1,000 fans Monday when he showed up at an event to promote his new movie “Logan,” expected to be the final time he plays the superhero Marvel Comics character on the big screen.
It took him about 30 minutes to walk down the red carpet, during which he happily interacted with fans — including signing autographs and taking selfies.
“Ni hao (Hello),” Jackman said in Mandarin to greet the huge crowd after taking the stage.
Jackman also had a good conversation with the event’s host, who introduced him to several types of Taiwanese street food, such as pig’s blood cake and stinky tofu.
Patrick Stewart, who plays Professor X in the film, will accompany Jackman on the visit to Taiwan, the only Asian stop on the movie’s promotional tour, according to 20th Century Fox.
