Maria Bello

  1. Daphne Ashbrook, Doctor Who (The Movie), TV, 1996. 
  2. Famke Janssen, X-Men quartet, 1999-2013.    “Mutants are not the ones mankind should fear.”  Lucy Lawless and Peta Wilson could not shake the shackles of their series (Xena: Warrior Princess, 1995-2001, and La Femme Nikita, 1997-2001). Bello and Helen Hunt passed. Bryan Singer (the final director after such notables as, Kathryn Bigelow, Danny Boyle, Tim Batman Burton, Richard Superman Donner, Irvin Stars Wars V Kershner, John McTiernan and Robert Rodriguez came and went) decided to go with Janssen as Jean Grey, aka – eventually – Phoenix.
