Barbie Movie – Who’s who in the Barbie-verse | Films | Entertainment

Brought to the big screen by Greta Gerwig, the pink extravaganza of Barbie will breathe new life into the iconic doll and her friends with some major names signed up for the film.

Who stars in the Barbie movie? 

Barbie – Margot Robbie 

Of course, a Barbie movie couldn’t go ahead without the doll herself and who better than Australian actress Margot Robbie to embody the toy?

She had her big breakthrough role in Martin Scorsese’s The Wolf of Wall Street almost 10 years ago and has since been in major hits like Bombshell, I, Tonya, Suicide Squad and Birds of Prey.

Ken – Ryan Gosling 

You cannot possibly have Barbie without her Ken and La La Land star Ryan Gosling has stepped into his perfect shoes.

He has a list of noteworthy credentials from Bladerunner 2049 and Drive, to The Notebook and The Fall Guy, with Barbie predicted to be yet another hit for the actor.

CEO of Mattel – Will Ferrell

Will Ferrell is behind the CEO of Mattel who is stunned to learn that the real-life versions of Barbie and Ken are out and about in Los Angeles.

Ferrell has been leaving viewers in hysterics for decades, first starting off in the cast of SNL.

He has since been in hits including Elf, Anchorman, Step Brothers, The Other Guys and The Lego Movie.

Gloria – America Ferrera 

Actress America Ferrera is best recognised for starring as the titular character in Ugly Betty.

She has been in the comedy Superstore for the past few years on NBC and will lend her voice for the upcoming Pixar film Elio.

Ferrera will play Gloria in Barbie, a Mattel employee who, as a child, owned the main Barbie and ultimately ends up teaming up with her favourite doll.

Ken #2 – Simu Liu

Ken #2 is the rival of Gosling’s Ken and is played by Simu Liu, who starred as the hero in Marvel’s Shang Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings.

Physicist Barbie – Emma Mackey 

Sex Education fans will of course know Emma Mackey from the hit Netflix comedy-drama.

She has been transitioning into the world of movies, having gained roles in Emily, Death on the Nile and is set to feature in Hot Milk.

Ken #4 – Ncuti Gatwa 

Mackey will be joined by her Sex Education co-star Ncuti Gatwa as Ken #4.

He has a lot to look forward to as Gatwa has been confirmed as the next actor to play Doctor Who, making him the first black actor to take on the role.

Gatwa’s also going to star in Apple TV+’s Second World War series Masters of the Air.

She has most recently featured in HBO’s The Idol and will portray LGBTQ+ icon Candy Darling in a biopic.

Allan is the only non-Ken man doll in Barbieland, so he does stick out like a sore thumb.

Cera is a big name in the world of comedy, with parts in Juno, This is the End, Superbad and Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist.

Diplomat Barbie – Nicola Coughlan

Irish actress Nicola Coughlan was behind nervous Clare Devlin in the Channel 4 sitcom Derry Girls and went on to star as Penelope Featherington in Netflix’s period drama Bridgerton.
