Alice Krige, the actress best known for playing the cybernetic monarch the Borg Queen in First Contact, has signed on for Alan Taylor’s Asgardian sequel Thor: The Dark World.
While she’s given no specifics about her role, the South African thespian hinted that she may be unrecognizable in the film. If her character requires a great deal of CGI or prosthetics, then she’ll probably be one of Marvel’s more fantastical beings.
Given her penchant for regal roles, I think we can safely bet she’ll play Alflyse, Queen of the Dark Elves. Although, given the age gap between the actress and Christopher Eccleston, who’ll portray Malekith the commander of the evil beasties, I think Krige will be a more subtle character.
The other possibility is that she could play Death. Krige has a history of playing great female villains and this is one role that would suit he perfectly. However, a role as prominent as that would probably go to a more high profile (and younger) actress.
Well Maniacs, who do you think Krige will play?
