Astrid Bergès-Frisbey has joined the cast of Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides and will be getting wet – she will be playing a mermaid that figures predominately into the plot.
Bergès-Frisbey will play “the key role of Syrena, a beautiful and alluring young mermaid.” Unfortunately, the studio reveals nothing else in regards to story. All we know at this point is that the film has something to do with the Fountain of Youth.
Now I know nothing about this actress, but a quick stalking on the googles tells me that she is a very pretty girl, and I always thought of mermaids as having a french accent anyways – kind of gives them a seductive exotic flair. So this works out in my head.
This new story that finally puts to rest all that Elizabeth and Will romance will not feature the couple at all, but instead focuses around the map to the Fountain of Youth seen in the closing moments of the third film.
