People have been reacting the same way after hearing the news that Emma Mackey has been cast in the same movie as Margot Robbie.
Robbie is starring in a live-action film playing Barbie, alongside Ryan Gosling playing her Ken. The 31-year-old had this to say about her upcoming role:
“Playing with Barbie promotes confidence, curiosity and communication throughout a child’s journey to self-discovery. Over the brand’s almost 60 years, Barbie has empowered kids to imagine themselves in aspirational roles from a princess to president.”
“I’m so honoured to take on this role and produce a film that I believe will have a tremendously positive impact on children and audiences worldwide. I can’t imagine better partners than Warner Bros and Mattel to bring this film to the big screen.”
Sex Education star Emma Mackey has also been cast in the movie and fans are excited to see the two icons work together.
Mackey’s role has not yet been confirmed, according to reports from THR, but some people are suggesting they should make the most of the uncanny resemblance.
People took to twitter, with some saying:
‘i’m obsessed with the fact that we’ve had like 4 years of ‘are Emma Mackey and Margot Robbie the same person’ takes that they’re going to be in a movie together.’
‘Emma Mackey and Margot Robbie in a live action barbie movie together THIS IS NOT A DRILL.’
