Meanwhile, Brenton Thwaites’s character, Henry has been speculated to be the grown-up son of Swan and Turner. While speaking about his role, he said, “It’s about a young man who wants to reconnect with his father, Davy Jones.
There’s a curse that prevents him from doing that. I think it’s about how he goes around that and tries to fix it and he has to save his dad.”
Meanwhile, Kaya Scodelario, who will play the new character Carina Smyth decided to talk about her role as well, “[Carina] is an astronomer, and she is an academic. She’s fighting for the right to study at university, because women couldn’t at that time.
So she’s on her own journey – looking for the Trident of Poseidon – and she has a diary with clues, and she encounters Jack Sparrow along the way, and he messes everything up. As he does. And it’s fun!”
There are further reports speculating that she could be joining another popular franchise in the future. Reports reveal that she could play the iconic character of Lara Croft in the upcoming film adaptation of the Tomb Raider franchise.
