I, ORIGINS

Hand-picked by director Rob Marshall and producer Jerry Bruckheimer, ASTRID BERGES-FRISBEY (Sofi) made her English language debut in 2011 in the highly anticipated sequel PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: ON STRANGER TIDES starring Johnny Depp. She landed the role of Syrena, after a whirlwind of auditions in France, Hollywood, and the UK. Born in Barcelona to a Spanish father and a French-American mother, Berges-Frisbey grew up in Spain, France and Dominican Republic and at the age of 17 she moved to Paris on her own. In 2006 she got her first job as an actress via an online casting—a small part in a big European production but unfortunately her role ended up on the cutting room floor.

In 2007 Berges-Frisbey got her first major part in Bernard Stora's film for France 2: ELLES ET MOI alongside actors Danielle Darrieux and Adiadna Gil. Then she spent four months in Cambodia on an adaptation of Marguerite Duras' novel The Sea Wall directed by the documentary awards winner Rithy Panh where she worked alongside Isabelle Huppert and Gaspard Ulliel. In 2008, she starred in the successful French comedy LA PREMIERE ETOILE directed by Lucien Jean-Baptiste, an adaptation of a Montherlant's play La Reine Morte for France 2. Additionally she starred on stage at the Theatre Marigny in Equus by Peter Shaffer. Since 2009, Astrid Berges-Frisbey has been starring in Spanish, French, and American films, acting in French, Spanish, Catalan and English, including a Spanish independent film directed by Xavier Villaverde, Daniel Auteuil's first film, a remake of LA FILLE DU PUISATIER.

This past summer she was seen in JULIETTE, Pierre Godeau's first feature film. She recently finished filming HOME IS WHERE YOUR HEART ACHES directed by the visual artist and writer Julien Levy.
