Dune: Part Two is shaping up to be the movie event of the year and we introduce you to Lady Margot Fenring, played by Lea Seydoux, and discuss the rest of the cast involved.
We previously discussed the meaning behind Paul’s threatening phrase to Feyd-Rautha in the Part Two trailer: ‘May thy knife chip and shatter.’
Directed by Villeneuve and based on the 1965 novel of the same name by Frank Herbert, Dune: Part Two, is a two-part movie adaptation boasting a screenplay co-written by Villeneuve and Jon Spaihts following royal Paul Atreides who joins forces with the Fremen in order to combat the evil Harkonnens on the planet Arrakis.
**Spoilers ahead for Dune**
Who is Lady Margot Fenring?
Lady Margot Fenring is a Bene Gesserit and wife of Hasimir Fenring, the Mentat Count and ruler of House Fenring.
The character’s first and only appearance was in the first Dune novel by Frank Herbert and she was the one who tipped Lady Jessica Atreides about House Harkonnen’s betrayal.
Lady Margot’s message read:
“May this place give you as much pleasure as it has given me. Please permit the room to convey a lesson we learned from the same teachers: the proximity of a desirable thing tempts one to overindulgence. On that path lies danger. My kindest wishes.”
In Dune: Part Two, however, it is teased that she may have a romance with Austin Butler’s character, Feyd-Rautha.
