Barbie Ferreirais reporting for BFF duty…
The 22-year-old Brazilian American actress and model will star in HBO MAX’s adaptation of Jenni Hendriks and Ted Caplan’s novel UNPregnant.
Ferreira will star opposite Haley Lu Richardson in the film, which will be directed by Rachel Lee Goldenberg.
UNpregnant tells the story of 17-year-old Veronica (Richardson), who never thought she’d want to fail a test—that is, until she finds herself staring at a piece of plastic with two solid pink lines. With a promising college-bound future now disappearing before her eyes, Veronica considers a decision she never imagined she’d have to make. This tough and never-taken-lightly decision leads her on a 900+ mile road trip to New Mexico over three days with her ex-best friend Bailey (Ferreira), where they discover that one of the most important factors in your life is who your friends are.
The film hails from Erik Feig’s Picturestart and Greg Berlanti Productions.
Ferreira most recently starred on HBO’s Zendaya-led drama series Euphoria, as well as appearances on Divorce.
Ferreira starred in the Vice series How to Behave, about etiquette, which earned her a Webby Award for Best Web Personality/Host. She also starred in the Teen Vogue web series Body Party, about body positivity.
