How Love Island’s Chris Taylor secured a cameo in the new Barbie movie thanks to superfan Margot Robbie

Love Island UK star Chris Taylor may not have found love during Season 5 of the show, but his time on the series has most certainly paid off.

The hilarious Bombshell revealed this week that Love Island superfan and Hollywood sensation Margot Robbie helped land him in a role in the new Barbie movie – and even he can’t believe his luck.

The cheeky chap told LADbible that the epic opportunity came to be when he was living with ex-contestants Michael Griffiths and Jordan Hames.

The duo met Margot at the London premiere of her 2020 DC Comics movie, Birds of Prey: And the Fantabulous Emancipation Of One Harley Quinn.

“There is a bit of a backstory. The lads went to a premiere,” Chris said. “They met Margot, and then afterwards Margot shouted them and said ‘Come to the after party!’ cause she’s obsessed with Love Island right.

“So then, I was living with the boys at the time, so I was like ‘I’m coming’ and she knew who we all were. She watches the show.”

He grinned: “So she comes up to me like ‘Chris!’ and I’m like, ‘What the f–k is going on?’ I dunno, she must have just remembered me from then.”

According to Cosmopolitan, he was asked to audition for the movie six months later.

Chris’ part in the movie is fleeting, and he has one line that says: “And the Nobel prize for horses goes to Ken!”

He added to the publication that he bumped into Margot at the premiere in London, who said she was happy the scene didn’t get cut.

Chris joked about the cameo on his Instagram page, and wrote: “This WILL sound made up…but I’m in the ACTUAL Barbie Film 🤯 No bloody idea how, but here we are…I’m an actual Ken (I talk a lot of sh!te so swipe for evidence 😂).

“Wish I had more to say about this, but I still think I’ve imagined it. Thank you to the person who made this happen, you know who you are, you glorious ray of human sunshine 🌝.”

Margot has often been vocal about her passion for the series, and in 2021 she even celebrated her birthday with a Love Island themed bash.

Chris was on Season 5 of the show, and joined as a Bombshell.

While he didn’t find love on the show, he ended up dating co-star Maura Higgins for a while but the pair’s relationship later fizzled out.

She’s currently the social ambassador for Love Island USA over in Fiji, so it’s fair to say the Islanders are doing pretty well for themselves!
