No more Neighbours! Five reasons why 2016 is Margot Robbie’s year

From the trials and tribulations of Ramsay Street to playing the wife of corrupt stockbroker, Jordan Belfort, former Neighbours star Margot Robbie has come a long way in six years. In fact, we reckon 2016 is going to be her biggest year yet.

With three major movies to be released in the next few months alone and the announcement today that she is set to portray disgraced Olympian Tonya Harding in a new biopic, the future is all sunny skies for the Aussie beauty.

Here’s just a few reasons everyone will be talking about Margot Robbie this year…

She’s starring alongside one of comedy’s biggest names
From the 22nd of April you can see Robbie in Whiskey Tango Foxtrot with Tina Fey. The pair play two journalists sent to Afghanistan to report on the war.

She’ll be heading to the jungle, too
Tarzan, meet Jane… or should we say ‘meet Margot.’ Heading into the summer months you’ll catch Margot swinging from vines in The Legend of Tarzan alongside (her one-time rumoured fling) Alexander Skarsgard.

She’s trying her hand at some bad-ass comic book action
Possibly the most re-created Halloween costume from last year, Harley Quinn will come to life in this year’s Suicide Squad. And who plays the black-and-red bad girl? Yup, you’ve guessed it…

She’s just scored a MAJOR film role in I, Tonya
Margot’s latest casting, in the biopic of disgraced Olympian Tonya Harding, marks the first time Robbie will play the lead in a major motion picture. Harding had an incredibly tough rise to fame in the figure-skating world, before later being charged and imprisoned for her ties to the attacks on her rival Nancy Kerrigan. A very meaty role for the young actress and one that is already gathering a lot of interest.

Oh, and she KILLED it on the Oscars red carpet this year
The Aussie topped all of the best dressed lists at this year’s Academy Awards in shimmering gold custom Tom Ford. WIN.
