Sharing the same behind-the-scenes photo on Instagram, actress Sharon Rooney also captioned, “Barbie a real gift.”
Commenting on the photo in question, fans were quick to express their excitement for Barbie forthcoming release. “It fills my heart so much! I’m so excited to see this when it comes out,” one user commented, while another fan wrote, “Looks like so much fun can’t wait to see it.
Somewhere else, sex education Mackey shared some additional behind-the-scenes tidbits during an interview with Empire Reviewrevealing that early in filming, she and other cast members “had a Barbies sleepover” that involved “playing games with Scott Evans and Ncuti [Gatwa].”
Another recent tidbit from BTS came from Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings star Simu Liu, who, while addressing the Independent, revealed that he waxed to prepare for the role. “Waxing was an education, to say the least,” he said, adding, “It was one of the most painful experiences of my life. I have such admiration for the incredibly brave women who go through this every month.”
