Bella Donna Boudreaux Will Be Female Lead Character in Gambit. It was only last week when Channing Tatum officially signed on as Gambit in the X-Men spin-off. Well, Tatum will soon have a female lead by his side to play Gambit’s lover/partner Bella Donna Boudreaux.

Word is that three actresses are already in the running to portray her, including Spectre’s Lea Seydoux, Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation’s Rebecca Ferguson, and Mad Max: Fury Road’s Abbey Lee.

Bella Donna Boudreaux made her first comic book appearance in 1992 as a daughter of the New Orleans Assassin’s Guild who was also Gambit AKA Remy LaBeau’s first love.
