Sharon Rooney has been forced to pull out of an appearance due to the ongoing Hollywood actors' strike.

The Two Doors Down star, who plays Lawyer Barbie in the highly anticipated new film by Greta Gerwig, was due to appear at Glasgow Film Theatre on Saturday, July 22.

The 34-year-old, who stars alongside A-list actors Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling, will no longer be introducing the screening of the flick.

She was meant to speak ahead of the 4.30pm screening. A spokesperson for the GFT shared the news with fans on Twitter.

They wrote: "Due to the recently announced Screen Actors Guild strike, Sharon Rooney will not be attending the screening on July 22.

"We apologise for any disappointment."


Performers walked out on Friday morning after contract negotiations between actors’ union Sag-Aftra (Screen Actor’s Guild and the American Federation of Television and Radio Artists) and the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers (AMPTP) broke down.

Approximately 160,000 actors are now on strike, joining the 11,500 members of the Writers Guild of America (WGA), who walked out on May 2.

Actors will not film new projects or promote their films at junkets, premieres, awards shows or conventions during the strike.
