Pirates Of The Caribbean 4 nets second mermaid

Pirates Of The Caribbean

Australian actress Gemma Ward has joined the cast of Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides .

The former supermodel joins fellow Australian Geoffrey Rush alongside Johnny Depp for “a small speaking role” in the film, which is currently shooting in Hawaii under director Rob Marshall.

Ward will play the role of a second mermaid alongside the already-cast Astrid Astrid Bergès-Frisbey, making for some very multi-national sirens.

The actress, who is 23 years old and was born in Perth, also appeared in The Strangers (hidden behind a doll mask) and Aussie drama The Black Balloon .

Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides will be released in cinemas on 20 May 2011.
