Astrid Berges-Frisbey

With "Sons of Anarchy" and Pacific Rim star Charlie Hunnam set to play the title role in Guy Ritchie's medieval flick Knights of the Roundtable: King Arthur, it's time to get the royal warrior his leading lady. And Deadline reports it will be French actress Astrid Berges-Frisbey taking the role of Guinevere, a character who has been a love interest, warrior and betrayer in previous incarnations of King Arthur's tales. This is a potentially big role for the actress since there's a plan for a story from Joby Harold that could span six films. And since Guinevere is a big part of Arthur's history, you can bet she'll stick around. Read on!

Berges-Frisbey has only had a couple pivotal roles in better known films recently with supporting roles in Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides and the indie sci-fi drama I Origins. She seems to be a gifted actress despite only being in the business since 2007 when she started on French television. In fact she only just learned English when she joined the fourth Pirates film for Disney years ago. But it's still up in the air as to whether audiences are up for such a big medieval film. Sure, "Game of Thrones" is popular, but audiences seem to be pretty picky about their big screen fantasy epics.

She certainly is beautiful...wow! I like Ritchie's work, except the Madonna debacle, but he lost me on this one when he cast Hunnam; that guy just comes across as vacuous to me. Pity, as I really like these King Arthur stories. Oh well, plenty of people like this Sons of Anarchy guy so my 2 cents means squat!..lol..
