The filming of “Barbie” has begun! Margot Robbie was photographed on Tuesday on the set of the feature film, expected for July 2023. The Australian actress, who plays the most famous doll in the world, wore a fuchsia pink tank top and bell bottoms. Ryan Gosling, who plays Ken, was also seen. The actor, dyed platinum blond to best embody his character, wore a black shirt embroidered with fringes, a pink bandana around his neck and black pants over white cowboy boots. First glimpses of the actors in the skin of their characters had been shared by Warner a few days ago.
The project, directed by Greta Gerwig (“Ladybird”, “The Daughters of Doctor March”), has been announced since 2016. At the end of April, “Deadline” shared a first pitch for the film, although the plot remains unclear. “A doll living in Barbieland is expelled for not being perfect enough, which causes her to venture into the real world,” wrote the American media. Issa Rae and Haru Nef should also play the role of Barbie while two other actors are expected to play that of Ken: Ncuti Gatwa and Simu Liu. Emma Mackey, Connor Swindells, Emerald Fennel and Will Ferrel complete this cast.
