Comic book fans know the name Harley Quinn very well as the Joker’s girlfriend, but regular movie goers might be a bit lost without that little fact, depending on how much of the Joker’s and Harley’s history is covered in the movie.
Margot Robbie was raised on the Gold Coast of Australia, spending much of her time at the farm belonging to her grandparents. She attended and graduated from Somerset College. In her late teens, she moved to Melbourne to pursue an acting career. Her first break came when she appeared in two films directed by Aash Aaron – Vigilante (2008) and I.C.U. (2009). In 2008, she began appearing as “Donna Freeman” in the soap opera, Neighbours (1985). The role and performance was popular and Robbie was nominated for several Logie Awards. She left the show in 2010 and set off to pursue Hollywood opportunities, quickly landing the role of “Laura Cameron” in the ABC drama, Pan Am (2011).
Margot got people’s attention with Wolf of Wall Street, and with upcoming roles in Focus, Tarzan, Z for Zachariah, and The Taliban Shuffle, she should be a bigger name by the time Suicide Squad rolls around.
Margot Robbie will reportedly join Will Smith and Tom Hardy in the Suicide Squad.
