Astrid Bergès-Frisbey is a French-Spanish actress who made her English film debut as the mermaid Syrena in Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides. Previous to this, she stared in several French movies and television shows.
Astrid is fluent in French, Spanish, and Catalan and only recently began learning English. She comes to the Girlfriend Bracket as a wildcard pick and is certainly one of the actresses with whom I am least familiar (seeing as I don’t watch a lot of French television). However, I have heard excellent things about her film, The Sea Wall, in which she plays Suzanne, and will probably check it out soon. Despite being an unknown wildcard pick, don’t count Astrid out – after all, who doesn’t want a mermaid as a (fake) girlfriend?
