Maura Higgins launches acting career as she lands role in first movie

Love Island fans across the world were left baffled earlier this year when it was announced that 2019 contestant Chris Taylor had bagged a role in this year's global blockbuster hit, Barbie, alongside A-list stars Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling.
