Astrid Berges-Frisbey

Àstrid Bergès-Frisbey (born 26 May 1986) is a Spanish-French actress, currently residing in Paris. She is fluent in French, Spanish and Catalan.

Bergès-Frisbey was born in Barcelona, Spain, to a Spanish Catalan father and a French-American mother. She made her acting debut in 2007 on French television, and has since appeared in films alongside Isabelle Huppert, Vincent Perez and Daniel Auteuil. In 2008 she made her feature debut in the film The Sea Wall. She took her first steps into the fashion world in 2010, fronting French Connection’s spring/summer campaign, The Woman, and continued in its autumn/winter campaign for a second consecutive season.

Personally picked by producer Jerry Bruckheimer and director Rob Marshall, Bergès-Frisbey made her English language debut in 2011 in the highly-anticipated sequel Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides. She landed the role of mermaid Syrena after a whirlwind of auditions in France, Hollywood and the UK. Since her character played a vital role in the story, she had to refresh her acquaintance with the English language.
