Margot Robbie Biography:
Margot Elise Robbie was born on July 2, 1990, in Dalby, a small town in Queensland, Australia. As she was brought up by a single mother, Margot was forced to work three jobs at the age of 16 to support her mother, her three siblings and herself as she began her studies at drama school. However, by the age of 17-years-old, Robbie knew that she would have to leave Dalby and move to Melbourne to have any chance of acting professionally. Luckily, the big move paid off, and Margot was cast in two Australian feature films in 2007, I.C.U and Vigilante. In 2008, Robbie began her three-year acting career with the hit Australian TV show, Neighbours, where she was initially cast as a guest character. In 2010, and after an incredible reaction from Australian fans, Margot decided to move to Hollywood and pursue a movie career. In 2012, Robbie landed her first movie role alongside Bill Nighy, Rachel McAdams, and Domhnall Gleeson in the hugely popular, About Time. Although it was not a leading role, she stood out and soon caught the attention of Martin Scorsese – who cast her alongside Leonardo DiCaprio and Jonah Hill in The Wolf of Wall Street (2013). This role is known as Margot Robbie’s most career-defining moment and the role which caused her to become a household name and highly sought-after actress. In 2015, Robbie appeared alongside Will Smith in the comedy-drama movie, Focus. Although the reviews were mixed, Robbie’s performance was praised, and the next year, she scored herself another leading part in a major movie – the live-action The Legend of Tarzan, where she starred as Jane. Her most recent role was in DC Comics’ Suicide Squad, as Harley Quinn. She will be reprising her role for Suicide Squad 2 next year.
