Margot Robbie has revealed that she needed a dialect coach for the series that gave her acting career a jumpstart, âNeighbours.â
Robbie, who earned an Oscar nomination for her performance in âI, Tonyaâ last year, told Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield on âThis Morningâ that she needed a coach because her accent was actually too Australian.
âThat is true, my Australian accent was too strong, even for âNeighboursâ,â she informed the baffled TV presenters. âThey had to soften it a little bit.â
The actress went on to talk about how her accent is more âdiluted than it used to beâ after living in England and having an English husband, who she now lives in America with.
She talked about how she found the script for the film on her kitchen bench while living with friend and director Vaughn Stein. They made the film two and a half years ago (before âI, Tonyaâ) and it was the first movie they produced.
Margot Robbie will soon start work on Quentin Tarantinoâs new movie, âOnce Upon a Time in Hollywoodâ, which she stars in opposite Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt.
