'World's Loneliest Dog' scores a role in 'Transformers: The Last Knight'

Movies News

Upon reading news of “The World’s Loneliest Dog,” a homeless epileptic Staffordshire Bull Terrier named “Freya," director Michael Bay decided to give her a role in Transformers: The Last Knight, the latest film in the Paramount global action franchise.

Bay, a dog lover with two of his own—bullmastiffs named Bonecrusher and Grace–tweeted that not only would he give a role to the Freshfields Animal Rescue Centre stray of six years, but that he would adopt her if no one would.

Freya had been passed over for adoption more than 18,000 times, despite being a “very loving dog.” She has since been adopted by a couple in the U.K. and this summer Bay fulfilled his promise and Freya got her chance to be a Hollywood starlet, starring in scenes alongside Sir Anthony Hopkins.

Transformers: The Last Knight hits theatres on June 23, 2017. Watch Freya in action here.
