Move over, Angelina! Johnny’s got a hot new on-screen love interest… and she’s a young’n!
Johnny Depp, 46, hasn’t even finished filming his current action-thriller The Tourist with Angelina Jolie, 34, but we’re already getting excited about his next on-screen encounter! Page Six is reporting that French model/actress Astrid Berges-Frisbey, 23, has been cast in Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides as Syrena the Mermaid, a mysterious character who goes after Johnny’s Captain Jack Sparrow. Hm… it sounds like she’ll be giving Penelope Cruz‘s character some competition!
Astrid is featured in a new ad campaign by French Connection, and Pirates producer Jerry Bruckheimer reportedly saw her on a billboard in NYC’s SoHo and HAD to have her in the movie! Wow — if she was able to entrance Jerry with a single look, it sounds like Astrid is going to make a heck of a mermaid!
