Margot Robbie (born 2 July 1990) is an Australian actress. She is known for her role as Donna Freedman on the soap opera Neighbours, which earned her two Logie Award nominations. In 2011, Robbie began appearing as Laura Cameron in the ABC drama series Pan Am.


Early life

Robbie was born on 2 July 1990 and grew up on the Gold Coast in Australia. Robbie split her time between the beach and her grandparents' farm, before moving to Melbourne when she was seventeen to begin acting professionally. She graduated from Somerset College on the Gold Coast in 2007.


Robbie has been acting professionally since 2007, when she starred in two feature films, I.C.U. and Vigilante, both directed by Aash Aaron. After impressing the director with her performance during an audition, she won the lead in I.C.U. without an agent at the time. She has also acted in commercials and featured in a guest role in City Homicide as Caitlin Brentford in 2008.

Robbie began appearing as Donna Freedman on Neighbours from June 2008. The character was originally only a guest role, but she was soon promoted to a regular cast member. In an interview with Digital Spy, Robbie said she had gone on a snowboarding holiday to Canada with her boyfriend soon after auditioning, but had to return after only two days when told that she had won the role.

In early 2009, Robbie appeared in various Network Ten promotions, featuring an ensemble of popular Australian faces on the network. In July 2009, she filled the "Generation Y" guest spot on the Network Ten show Talkin' 'Bout Your Generation. Robbie also became a Youth Ambassador for missing persons as part of National Youth Week.

In the same year, she was nominated for "Most Popular New Female Talent" at the Australian Logie Awards. She was also nominated for "Favorite Hottie" at the Nickelodeon Kids Choice Awards and was up against her Neighbours co-star Dean Geyer. In September 2010, Robbie announced that she was to leave Neighbours after almost three years to pursue an acting career in Hollywood. Her final scenes aired on 26 January 2011 and in April of that year, Robbie was nominated for "Most Popular Actress" at the Logie Awards.

After arriving in Los Angeles for pilot season, Robbie auditioned for the new series of Charlie's Angels. However, the producers at Sony Pictures Television preferred her for a role in ABC drama series Pan Am. Robbie landed the role of Laura Cameron, a newly trained flight attendant.

Personal life

In 2009, Robbie began residing in a house with her Neighbours co-star Ashleigh Brewer. Following her decision to quit Neighbours, Robbie announced that she was moving to Los Angeles to live with her former co-star Caitlin Stasey. During production for Pan Am, Robbie resides in New York.
