Who is Àstrid Bergès-Frisbey?
Àstrid Bergès-Frisbey is a French-Spanish actress and model. She is best known for her roles in The Sea Wall as Suzanne, as the mermaid Syrena in Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, and as Sofi in I Origins. She won the Prix Suzanne Bianchetti in 2009, the Trophée Chopard Award for Female Revelation of the Year at the 2011 Cannes Film Festival, and was nominated for the David di Donatello in Rome in 2016.
Her Early Life
Astrid Berges-Frisbey was born on 26 May 1986 in Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain. Her father is Spanish, and her mother is French-American. She is the youngest of three sisters.
Her parents divorced when she was only two years old, and she was taken to France at the age of five. She grew up in a small village near La Rochelle, France, where she acted in school plays as a hobby but never considered acting as a possible career path because the countryside where she lived was very different from the movie industry, describing how acting was “not a profession; it was something abstract.” Her father later relocated to the Dominican Republic, where she worked as a waitress for five summers. She moved to Paris by herself at the age of 17 to pursue a career in Osteopathy, but she found herself moving around a lot and not knowing anyone in the area. Her father died soon after, at the age of 46. Astrid describes the incident as making her realize that life is too short and that her true calling was acting. She went straight to drama school after graduation.
Astrid convinced that acting was her calling, made her acting debut on French television in 2007 at the age of 21. ‘The Sea Wall,’ her first feature film, was released in 2008. The training she received at drama school aided her in landing these roles.
When director Rob Marshall and producer Jerry Bruckheimer chose Astrid for a role in an English film in 2011, she had to learn the English language. This was the much-anticipated film ‘Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides,’ for which Astrid had to audition in France, America, and the United Kingdom.
The model actress’ repertoire also boasts Spanish and French movies. She starred in the Spanish film, ‘El Sexo De Los Ángeles’ alongside Llorenç González and Álvaro Cervantes.
Astrid played the protagonist Juliette in the coming-of-age French film ‘Juliette’ (2013), which deals with youth and the Eurozone crisis.
The next English movie on her work list was ‘I Origins’ (2014) in which she played the character of Sofi. The film was directed by Mike Cahill and its cast included Michael Pitt and Brit Marling.
Bergès-Frisbey learned to speak Italian for the movie Alaska (2015). In 2017, she starred in King Arthur: Legend of the Sword.
