Images of Margot Robbie on her latest film have emerged and she's unrecognisable
Being an actor must be a strange old job. One minute you're just being yourself in your family home, the next minute you have to completely transform your image, character and lifestyle in order to get into part. You see some extreme transformations throughout the world of acting, whether it's Tom Hardy getting absolutely massive to play the role of Bane in The Dark Knight, or Christian Bale's extreme weight loss for his role in The Machinist, some actors literally transform their bodies for the purposes of their job.
However, it would be fair to say that when you think of Margot Robbie, you think of her in her and her famous blond locks. The actress, who has devoted her abilities to a range of different roles, such as the Brooklyn wife of Jordan Belfort in The Wolf of Wall Street, or the now infamous portrayal of Harley Quinn in Suicide Squad (which has inspired female halloween outfits for many years to come) is rarely seen without her trademark blonde hair.
So when images emerged online of Robbie filming for her new role the other day, plenty of people had to rub their eyes in order to believe that it was the same blonde bombshell that we are used to seeing on our screens.
Robbie is playing a more regal role in her new project; she will be portraying Queen Elizabeth I in the upcoming film, Mary Queen of Scots. The actress has been photographed on set in London and appears to have gone under an extreme transformation in order to prepare for the role of the flame haired, pale-skinned, and famously temperamental Queen.
Understandably, fans of the actress cannot believe the transformation, and the internet has been awash with praise for the actress and her ability to shape herself to any role she plays, with one fan saying: "y'all better stop sleeping on miss margot robbie she out here looking completely unrecognizable for every new role she plays im shook".
Margot is set to follow the footsteps of some pretty incredible actresses in playing the Virgin Queen, and no doubt her performance will be compared against those that she is following. Queen Elizabeth I has previously been played by the likes of Dame Judi Dench, Helen Mirren, Miranda Richardson and Cate Blanchett, so no pressure Margot!
In the photos, Robbie can be seen sporting a traditional Tudor outfit, including a corset, jacket, and wide buckled shirt for her new role. More astonishingly though, her hair is much the same as the infamous royal, and the actress appears to have applied a sharp prosthetic nose to her face as well, making her look completely different.
The actress was voted Esquire's Sexiest Woman Alive in 2017, which is undoubtedly a serious compliment. However, Robbie has only won three awards across her acting career, something which many people do not think is reflective of her acting prowess. Hopefully this iconic role will finally see her get the recognition that she deserves.
