Margot Robbie Biography
Australian actress Margot Robbie’s is known for her roles in Hollywood movies and for producing and starring in I, Tonya, the 2017 comedy about the real-life caper involving Olympic skater Tonya Harding in 1994.
Robbie began her screen career on Australian television, as a regular in the soap opera Neighbours. After two seasons she was offered a contract extension, but Robbie had bigger ambitions. She moved to the U.S. and landed a role in the short-lived series Pan Am (2011), followed by her breakout in Martin Scorsese‘s The Wolf of Wall Street, as Leonardo Di Caprio‘s hot-blond wife.
Her career was off and running, and in 2015 and 2016 she was all over, including in Z for Zachariah (2015, with Chiwetel Ejiofor and Chris Pine), Focus (2015, with Will Smith), The Big Short (2015, uncredited), Whiskey Tango Foxtrot (2016, starring Tina Fey) and The Legend of Tarzan (2016, starring Alexander Skarsgård).
I, Tonya received good reviews and did well at the box office, and Robbie became an in-demand leading lady, playing Queen Elizabeth I in 2018’s Mary Queen of Scots and actress Sharon Tate in Quentin Tarantino‘s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood (2019).
Robbie got her own comic-book movies when she played Harley Quinn, the crazed sometime-girlfriend of The Joker, in the murderous comedies Suicide Squad (2016) and Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) in 2020.
