Margot Robbie is called “the Heartbreaker of the cinematography” and the living embodiment of Femme Fatale. So, let’s see what 10 Margot Robbie’s craziest roles are!
She lived her early years at her grandfather’s farm in a little provincial town Dolby.
Margot Robbie as a child visited almost all clubs starting with rowing and the other sports and ending with dancing and theatre performances. Living at the farm taught her to chop wood and milk cows. She was able to do it at the age of 10! But she secretly dreamed of shining on big screens. Let’s find out how a little-known actress conquered the world and get to know Margot Robbie’s filmography.
Robbie’s first roles were so insignificant that her name didn’t even appear in the credits.
But it was enough so that a starting actress was seen by an outstanding director from Australia Aash Aaron who offered her to play a main character in his new film in 2007. The director could choose between a lot of Australian women but he preferred her.
2008 became a really happy year for Margot Robbie’s filmography. She came to casting of “Neighbours” show which had been broadcasting on Australian TV with success since 1985. The girl didn’t even expect to receive a role, that’s why right after the audition she went on five-week vacation with her beau halfway around the world – the lovers flew to Canada in order to snowboard.
But before they could conquer Canadian slopes, Margot received an SMS which reported that from that time forward she was Donna Freedman – one of the new characters of the popular show. In two days Robbie came back to Australia.
Robbie devoted three years to the filming of the show. She worked on a movie set five days a week and seventeen hours a day during those three years. The final part of the series with her participation was published in January 2011. Robbie played a student and that filming brought the actress two nominations for the prestigious award “Australian Logie”.
3. Pan Am
In 2011 the actress went to conquer Hollywood. But nobody waited for her there and she began to participate in countless castings again. The actress auditioned for Abby Sampson on the show «Charlie’s Angels», but the producers preferred the other actress Rachel Taylor.
Nevertheless, the management of “Sony Pictures” paid attention to the request of the charming blonde and she was offered to play one of the main characters in a new show «Pan Am». The series were closed after the first season because of low ratings, but the role of a stewardess was Robbie’s gold ticket to a great cinema and filled up Margot Robbie’s filmography.
4. The most successful movie in Margot Robbie’s filmography is “The wolf of Wall Street”
The whole world of cinematography wondered who would be chosen to play “a hot blonde” in a distinguished director’s Martin Scorsese project.
The actress sent the director her portfolio without hope and, as was the case with the other show called “Neighbors”, flew to the other part of the world – The British Isles in order to celebrate the birthday of the Queen. On the same day the woman received a message. In a day she was obliged to report for an audience in New York involving Leonardo DiCaprio.
When a casting manager Ellen Louis saw what Robbie was wearing (ripped jeans and plain shoes), she at once sent Margot to a shop to buy the sexiest short dress and high-heeled shoes.
To the first ever preview of Margot Robbie’s new movie in her homeland the actress called all her relatives except her grandfather and her grandmother. Robbie was afraid that they wouldn’t bear the participation of their beloved granddaughter in erotic scenes. The star walked down the red carpet with her mother.

When Margot was called in order to offer the audition for the role in a film “Focus”, she was vacationing on one of the Croatian islands. She immediately packed a bag and reached the main island by a catamaran in 20 minutes.
On her way to New York she lost her luggage and came to the audience in time. She was without make-up and wearing shorts and a shirt. Will Smith was late for the audience, having come from Queens.

And that is to the credit not only of makeup artists and costume designers but the actress herself: for the new role she had to gain some weight. Thus, due to joint effort they achieved a phenomenal similarity to Tonya.
