Barbie has easily become one of the most-buzzed-about movies of this year, with fans eager to see how its ensemble cast bring the tale of the iconic Mattel doll to life. In addition to a slew of Barbies and Kens, Barbie’s cast includes some new characters, including America Ferrera as Gloria. While speaking to ComicBook.com’s Jamie Jirak about Barbie, Ferrera revealed that she actually was thankful that she hadn’t been cast as another version of Barbie.
“No, I want to do that,” Ferrera explained in our interview, which you can check out above. “Gloria was the part that I would have picked. And I’m glad that’s the part [director] Greta [Gerwig] wanted me for. And I did get to wear fun Barbie outfits, without spoiling it. So, yeah.”
