Gorgeous Australian model Gemma Ward may have slipped out of the modeling spotlight in recent years, but she’s not out of the spotlight altogether. On the contrary, Ward has been busy honing her acting skills with a part in Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides. Her role? Tamara, Queen of the Mermaids! Yesterday, the trailer for the highly-anticipated film came out and, while you will have to sit through several minutes of Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow, if you’re patient, you will spot a glimpse or two of Ward as she emerges from the water—and surprisingly, despite the fact that she plays a mermaid, she doesn’t look too friendly. The movie is due in theaters on May 20, 2011. In the meantime, check out the trailer inside—Ward appears at the 1.52 and 2.06 marks.
