Rob Brydon, the Welsh actor renowned for his roles in television and film, recently shared a story from his time on the set of the blockbuster movie Barbie, where he played Sugar Daddy Ken. Brydon disclosed how Margot Robbie, his co-star, surprised him by remembering a fan interaction from years prior. In an interview with Deadline, Brydon explained that Margot Robbie, a fan of his work in the British sitcom Gavin and Stacey, recalled a special birthday message he had recorded for her through a mutual friend.

Recalling the moment, Brydon said, "Years ago, Margot's friend requested that I record a birthday message for her as Uncle Bryn [his character in Gavin and Stacey]. I encountered Margot during a wardrobe fitting for Barbie. She asked, 'You don't remember doing that message, do you?' I replied, 'No, honestly, I forgot.'" Brydon, who had a short filming stint for Barbie, expressed his astonishment at the film's colossal impact. "Being in it for just a day, I had no idea," he commented, emphasizing the unforeseen magnitude of the movie project.

The actor also mused on the initial skepticism some Barbie fans had about his casting in the film, which he transformed into a meaningful lesson for aspiring actors. "You never know who's watching, do you?" Brydon noted, underscoring the unpredictability of opportunities in the entertainment industry, according to Deadline. Apart from his role in Barbie, Brydon is slated to reprise his cherished character Uncle Bryn in the upcoming Christmas special of Gavin and Stacey, set to air on BBC during the holiday season.
