A new biopic called “I, Tonya” starring Margot Robbie is set to come out in 2018, and she had to undergo a big transformation for the film! Margot Robbie, is an Australian actress first came to prominence for her role as Donna Freedman on the soap opera Neighbours. After moving to the United States, Robbie appeared in films such as About Time and The Wolf of Wall Street, which earned her multiple award nominations including winning Best Female Newcomer at the Empire Awards. More recently, Robbie starred in Suicide Squad as Harley Quinn.
“I, Tonya” chronicles the events that led to the scandal between olympian figure skaters Tonya Harding and Nancy Kerrigan at the 1994 U.S. Championships. The scandal we are referring to is when a man attacked Kerrigan, and hit her just a few inches above her knee. This attack was traced back to Harding’s ex-husband, Jeff Gillooly and her bodyguard. This ultimately led to Harding being banned from U.S. Figure Skating.
Wow, sounds like the movie is going to be pretty intense. Check out the transformation of Robbie from her hard-hitting look, to the 90’s figure skater!
