The lead offered to Lea has been a contested one for the role of Belladonna Boudreaux aka Bella. As production had to be started the studio shortlisted a few names.
These include Lea Seydoux, Mad Max: Fury Road’s Abbey Lee and Rebecca Ferguson of Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation.
Now the role of Belladonna in Gambit will go to Lea. She has moved from the racy Cannes Sensation Blue Is the Warmest Color to the 007 film Spectre.
In the X-Men spinoff, Bella was basically Gambit’s childhood love. But eventually she got powers of her own and became the head of the Assassins Guild. Gambit on the other hand was the head of the Thieves Guild.
