Bulgarian actress Maria Bakalova has joined the casts of Andrew Durham's feature directorial debut Fairyland and Jerry Seinfeld's first feature film, Unfrosted: The Pop-Tart Story, whose star-studded lineup includes Seinfeld, Melissa McCarthy, Hugh Grant and Amy Schumer.
Besides Durham, producers on recently-wrapped Fairyland are Sofia Coppola, Megan Carlson, Greg Lauritano, Laure Sudreau and Siena Oberman.
Like Fairyland, it is unclear what role Bakalova will be stepping into for Unfrosted, though it sounds like she will have a small cameo appearance.
Bakalova also stars in the satirical slasher, Bodies Bodies Bodies, directed by Halina Reijn, and will soon appear in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 as Cosmo the telepathic space dog, a character based on the Soviet canine cosmonaut Laika.
She starred in and produced the adventure comedy The Honeymoon acquired by Prime Video and Grindstone.
Bakalova is the first Bulgarian actress to be nominated for a Golden Globe award, a SAG award, a Critics Choice award, a BAFTA, and an Academy Award for her portrayal of Tutar in Borat Subsequent Moviefilm released in 2020.
