Alice Krige, whose best known for her role as the Borg Queen in Star Trek: First Contact, has been cast in a small role in Marvel's Thor: The Dark World. The actress revealed that she would be in the movie while at the Star Trek convention in Las Vegas this weekend. She didn't mention who she would be playing in the film, but according to CBM she did say that she may not be recognizable in the film.
The actress joins the recently cast Christopher Eccleston as Malekith the Accursed. As well as original cast members Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Tom Hiddleston as Loki, Natalie Portman as Jane Foster and a few other familiar and new faces.
The story follows the God of Thunder to The Nine Realms beyond Asgard and earth. And as his evil half-brother, Loki, returns for Asgardian justice, a new threat rises. Also rejoining Thor are his fellow Asgardians, Lady Sif, gatekeeper Heimdall and Warriors Three, as they encounter mythical Norse creatures among evildoers.
The Alan Taylor-directed film will go into production this fall, and it's going to be epically glorious! At least that's what I'm hoping for!
