Margot Robbie, 27, is an Australian actress and film producer. Robbie was born and raised on a farm in Dalby, Queensland, but it is obvious that this talented and beautiful Oscar-nominated actress is no farm girl.
Robbie studied drama at Somerset College. She launched her career in Australian independent films in the late 2000s. She became a success since then acting in notable films and tearing up dialogue in such a great way for top box office films. Robbie has chosen the right roles to become an exploding sensation in Hollywood.
Robbie was raised along with her siblings by her single mother and she had little to no contact with her father. She began working at 10-years-old. You can definitely say that Robbie is working hard since a young age to give herself a life everyone can dream of. She didn’t come from money or a family with a name in Hollywood already. Robbie who is a young 27-year-old currently worked three jobs when she was 16-years-old at the same time and went to Somerset College to study drama. She is a Somerset College alumni. At the age of 17, Robbie moved to Melbourne, Victoria to begin acting professionally.
