Lark and BEAST vocalist Inge Beckmann has been cast in a French-SA film production, co-starring with Orlando Bloom. She's playing the part of Orlando Bloom's character's wife, Ruby.
Zulu tells the story of Ali Sokhela, chief of the Serious and Violent Crimes Unit of the South African police in Cape Town. An official film synopsis describes the film, which will go into production shortly:
"Ali is chief of the Serious and Violent Crimes Unit of the South African police in Cape Town. One of his staff is Brian Epkeen, a free-wheeling white officer whose family was originally involved in the establishment of Apartheid but who works well with Sokhela.
"Together they have to deal with crime that inevitably exists in sprawling areas of un- and under- employed people, crime exacerbated by gangs, both local and from other parts of Africa. Their job gets even more difficult when the corpses of two young women are found."
"I found out on my birthday, basically," Beckmann told Rolling Stone. "I'm incredibly excited to be working with actors and crew of this calibre."
"It was amazing because I actually missed the first audition - the band was in recording sessions and I had to make that call, I guess. By some miracle of Grace I was given a second opportunity, and then a call-back with the director and Orlando Bloom.
"I remember thinking on the way there: 'Do you want this? Yes, you want this.' I'm very nervous about it... but I'm going to give it my absolute very best."
