Actress Alice Krige, known by many geeks worldwide as the sextastic Borg Queen from Star Trek: First Contact, is rumored to be playing Queen Alflyse of the Dark Elves in Thor: The Dark World. The rumor mill started after Krige announced that she will have a small role in the Alan Taylor-directed film during a panel at this year’s Star Trek: Las Vegas convention.
Officially her role is an undisclosed one, however, the South African actress revealed that she may not be entirely recognizable in the film; alluding to a role that could require quite a bit of makeup. This has led many fans to speculate that the 58-year-old actress will be playing Queen Alflyse of the Dark Elves of Svartalfheim.
If that’s true, she would share much of her screen time with actor Christopher Eccleston who, as we reported last month, has been cast as the King of the Dark Elves, Malekith the Accursed, in the film. The Dark Elves are rumored to be the sequel’s main antagonists and in the Marvel Universe they lust for conquest after a history of poor treatment by the people of the other realms.
Principal photography on Thor: The Dark World began earlier this month in England, so we’ll have more news as production develops.
What do you think? Will Alice Krige play another queen of nerdom on the big screen?
