It’s always interesting to see how far actors will go to ~become one~ with the character they’re playing. We have seen actors drop a shocking amount of weight, and we’ve also seen them gain a shocking amount of weight.
Margot Robbie didn’t have to transform her body too much for her role as the disgraced figure skater Tonya Harding, but thanks to her hair and makeup team, she does look completely different.
The 26-year-old actress was photographed on the set of ‘I, Tonya’ in Australia on Monday. It’s our first look at the actress as Tonya, and we must say, we’re impressed by how she nailed the look.
Robbie wouldn’t have been our first choice to play Harding, but it looks like it’s going to work…
As described by Us Weekly, this biopic will bring “back to life Harding’s 1994 attack of rival skater Nancy Kerrigan. In one of the biggest and most notorious sports scandals in American history, Harding’s ex-husband, Jeff Gillooly, and bodyguard hired a hitman to injure Kerrigan seven weeks before the 1994 Winter Olympics.”
In addition to Robbie, Allison Janney, Sebastian Stan and Paul Walter Hauser will also star. No official release date has been announced, but it could be released as early as December 2017. However, it’s more likely to have a 2018 release date.
We’ll keep you posted.
