Maria Bakalova joins Guardians of the Galaxy 3 – Movie News |


Maria Bakalova has a role in “Guardians of the Galaxy 3”.

The ‘Borat Later Moviefilm’ actress joined cast regulars including Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Bradley Cooper and Karen Gillan for the filming of the franchise’s next installment, with Deadline reporting that she has a “key” role to play in the film.

However, details of his exact role have been kept under wraps.

While director James Gunn recently teased the involvement of an “unannounced actor” in the film, he wasn’t referring to Maria.

And he admitted he was “surprised” it took “so long” for news of the actress’ involvement to come to light.

Hailing Maria’s performance as “incredible”, he tweeted in response to Deadline’s news article: “Yes yes yes alright I guess I should be surprised it took you so long to get this one.

“@MariaBakalova96 is amazing. #gotgvol3 (sic)”

The 55-year-old filmmaker teased the involvement of a mysterious cast member last month when he confirmed filming had wrapped.

Explaining why Zoe was missing in a photo of himself laughing with Chris Pratt, Pom Klementieff, Karen, Dave and his brother Sean Gunn, he wrote: “And this is a photo about the Guardians of the Galaxy trilogy .

“I love this amazing cast team, their beautiful talented souls. I’m a lucky human to have them with me for almost a decade.

“And yes Zoe was with us but the only photo I have with her has an unannounced actor with us!”

James previously admitted there was “a lot of sadness” on the set of the film – due for release in May 2023 – because everyone knew it was their last outing.

One Twitter user asked, “Mr. Gunn, how’s the vibe on set?”

In response, James tweeted: “Honestly they are awesome, I love this cast and crew, but there’s also a lot of sadness and almost daily tears knowing this is the last Guardians movie for most of us. ‘between us.#gotgvol3.
