In this new role in Dungeons & Dragons as Gwinn, The Barbarian, wife of Marlamin, Hayley joins an all-star cast including Chris Pine, Michelle Rodriguez, Regé-Jean Page, Justice Smith, Sophia Lillis, Chloe Coleman, Daisy Head and Hugh Grant.
The film presents the roleplaying game to the big screen in a hilarious and action-packed adventure. A charming thief and a band of unlikely adventurers undertake an epic heist to retrieve a lost relic, things go dangerously awry when they run afoul of the wrong people. Hayley’s character also shares a big screen moment with an exciting surprise cameo star in the film – the identify of which has been causing a major stir with media and movie fans alike.
“This was a dream role for me! As I’m 6ft tall, I am often cast as a warrior, but the difference with Gwinn is that although she is a Barbarian woman, she is very friendly and down to earth – which appeals to me because I’m a big softy at heart!”Hayley
