Just yesterday Deadline Hollywood published the exclusive news regarding the actress chosen by director Rupert Wyatt to play the female leading role, Belldonna Boudreaux aka Bella, in the new X-Men’s movie “Gambit“. After weeks of rumours and speculations, Léa is the one who’s got offered the part. She was part of the final trio together with Abbey Lee Kershaw (from “Mad Max: Fury Road”) and Rebecca ferguson, but the yesterday’s news confirmed the role in Gambit could possibly go to her. We’ll keep you updated so make sure to keep checking back!
Just a few hours ago, a new “Spectre” behind-the-scenes video has been released. It focuses on two of the four Bond girls: Léa and co-star Monica Bellucci. She talks about her character, Madeleine Swann, her thoughts about working in this project and being the new Bond Girl under the direction of Sam Mendes. Have a look below!
“Madeleine – the character Léa Seydoux is playing – needed to be soulful, feisty and complicated. And I think it’s a pivotal relationship. So it probably couldn’t have been a total newcomer. We needed someone with a certain amount of life experience, maturity. And she’s the sort of whole package.”
– dir. Sam Mendes
Today is a truly special day as it is Léa’s 30th Birthday! She was born in Paris on July 1st, 1985.
2015 is shaping up to be an incredible year for Léa with her role of Madeleine Swann in the newest Bond installment, “Spectre” to be released in November. But I also think today marks a special date to look back into Léa’s 9-year acting career – In 2006, she got her first big role in Sylvie Ayme’s “Mes Copines“, a teenage comedy about four girls whose dream is to win a dancing contest.
I would like to take this chance to wish Léa a Happy Birthday and all the best on this very special day!
