‘Transformers: The Last Knight’ Set Video Features Anthony Hopkins and the World’s Loneliest Dog
If you’re a fan of internet-famous animals, then you’re probably quite familiar with the story of Freya, the British dog whose heartbreaking story made international headlines. Turns out that director Michael Bay is also a fan of the lonely canine, and in a surprising move that will undoubtedly melt the hearts of even his most critical naysayers, he gave Freya an acting job in the new Transformers movie. And as you can see in this new set video, she has a rather famous co-star.
For those unfamiliar, Freya has spent all six years of her life living in shelters. As the video explains, thousands of prospective owners declined to adopt Freya because she has epilepsy, earning her the nickname of World’s Loneliest Dog. I’ll give you a moment to collect yourself.
Anyway! Things have turned around for Freya, as that ol’ softie Michael Bay decided to cast her in Transformers: The Last Knight, which is currently shooting in the U.K. In even better news, one of the crew members has adopted Freya, who gets to make her big acting debut opposite Anthony Hopkins — not a bad way to kick off her acting career.
Transformers: The Last Knight also stars Mark Wahlberg, Josh Duhamel, Stanley Tucci and John Goodman, and hits theaters on June 23, 2017.
