Alice Krieg, best known to Star Trek fans for her unforgettable role as the Borg Queen in Star Trek: First Contact and as Christabella on Silent Hill, has reportedly been cast in an unspecified role in the upcoming Marvel Studios’ Thor picture. She made the announcement at last weekend’s Star Trek convention in Las Vegas. She did add that she may not be recognizable in the role, implying that there may be a fair bit of makeup effects involved.
Bleeding Cool both speculates that she could play Alflyse, the queen of Svartalfheim and therefore the wife of Malekith, the film’s central antagonist (being played by Christoper Eccleston, who formerly played Doctor Who), and notes that speculation about a minor role this early in production is probably fruitless.
Thor: The Dark World is filming now in London and is set for a release on November 8, 2013.
