Margot Robbie has become a massive star in a very short amount of time. A brief biography and 10 Instagram pics of the Australian actress that you must see.
Margot Robbie: The Early Years
Margot Elise Robbie was born on July 2nd, 1990 in Dalby, Queensland, and grew up in Gold Coast. The Australian actress was born to Sarie Kessler, a physiotherapist, and Doug Robbie, a former farm owner. Robbie has three siblings: an older brother, Lachlan; a younger brother, Cameron; and one sister, Anya. Robbie grew up on a farm, where she and her siblings were raised by her single mother. Robbie worked 3 jobs at the same time at the age of 16 to make ends meet. She moved to Melbourne, Victoria at the age of 17, to begin acting professionally after graduating from Somerset College where she studied drama.
In 2007, Margot Robbie started to land her first professional acting gigs, starring in two feature films, “I.C.U.” and “Vigilante.” Robbie landed the role in “I.C.U.” without even having an agent because she impressed the director so much.
In 2008, Robbie began appearing as Donna Freedman on “Neighbours,” a massively successful Australian television show. Her role was originally set to be a guest role, but Robbie impressed everybody, per usual, and was soon moved up to a regular cast member on the series. Robbie announced that she was to leave “Neighbours” in September 2010, after almost three years, to pursue an acting career in Hollywood.
Margot Robbie: The Hollywood Star
Margot Robbie arrived in Hollywood in 2011, just in time for pilot season. It did not take long for Robbie to land big roles: she auditioned for “Charlie’s Angels,” but the producers at Sony felt that she would be a better fit for their new ABC sitcom, “Pan Am.” In it, Robbie landed the role of a newly trained flight assistant, Laura Cameron. The show received positive reviews but was canceled after one season.
Robbie joined the cast of Richard Curtis’ romantic comedy “About Time” in May 2012, alongside Domhnall Gleeson, Rachel McAdams and Bill Nighy. Bith the film and Robbie received positive reviews, and the film grossed $87 million overall on a $12 million budget.
The role that would put Margot Robbie on the map was in the insanely popular Martin Scorsese film, “The Wolf Of Wall Street.” It was announced in June of 2012 that Robbie was in talks to appear in the movie with Leonardo DiCaprio and Jonah Hill. “The Wolf of Wall Street” was released on Christmas in 2013 to positive reviews and became a commercial success with a worldwide gross of $392 million, cementing it as Scorsese’s highest-grossing film. She was praised for her performance in the film and this led to her taking off in Hollywood.
Robbie starred opposite Will Smith in the romantic comedy-drama film “Focus” in 2015. “Focus” grossed over $150 million and, once again, Margot Robbie was praised for her performance.
Robbie is a wow and then some… Even when Focus fumbles, Robbie deals a winning hand.
This is what Peter Travers of Rolling Stone, one of the greatest film critics, had to say about Margot’s performance.
Her outstanding performances on “The Wolf of Wall Street” and “Focus” led to Robbie landing the role as Harley Quinn in the DC Comics super-villain film, Suicide Squad. Harley Quinn is a role that many actresses wanted, and Robbie landed it with ease. She is tapped to play Harley Quinn in more films in the future, including a rumored spinoff based entirely on Harley Quinn, The Joker’s main girl and one of Batman’s biggest rivals.
Margot Robbie was just nominated for a Golden Globe at the 75th Golden Globe Awards for Best Actress for her role in “I, Tonya.” “I, Tonya” tells the story of Olympic figure skater Tanya Harding, and Margot nailed the performance, per usual.
