Léa Seydoux joined Dunes 2 in the critical role of Lady Margot, a key ally of Paul Atreides (Timothée Chalamet) in his war with the House of Harkonnen. Director Denis Villeneuve will begin filming the sequel to Dunes later this year, with Chalamet, Zendaya, Rebecca Ferguson, Josh Brolin, Javier Bardem, Stellan Skarsgard And Dave Bautista who will resume their roles. They will be joined by the new actors Austin Butler (as Feyd-Rautha Harkonnen, heir to the House of Harkonnen), Christopher Walken (in the role of Emperor Shaddam IV) e Florence Pugh (in the role of the emperor’s daughter, Princess Irulan).
In the novel by Frank Herbert, Lady Margot enters the story early when she leaves a critical warning to Paul’s mother, Lady Jessica (Ferguson) about the betrayal that awaits them on Arrakis after House Atreides takes over from House Harkonnen. That sequence didn’t end in Villeneuve’s film, but as a Bene Gesserit member, Lady Margot has an important role to play in the second half of the story, involving Feyd-Rautha and her husband, Count Fenring (role for which he has not yet been chosen actor).
