From Ramsay Street To Wall Street
Before stardom on the television and screen, Robbie was a regular kid growing up on Queensland's Gold Coast. It wasn't until 2008 that Robbie's career began to take off on Neighbours, where she played Donna Freedman. What was supposed to be a guest role quickly became a regular gig after the bright-eyed actress won over the show's fans.

Robbie announced in 2010 that she was leaving the beloved soapie behind to try her luck in Hollywood. "It wasn't like, 'Guess I'll go to America!'" the actress said in an interview. "For two years while I was finishing my contract on Neighbours, I was carefully setting things up."

Upon arriving in Los Angeles, Robbie was signed up by Sony to star in the ABC drama series Pan Am alongside Christina Ricci. She played a flight attendant on the series, but the series didn't go further than the first season, due to low ratings.
After the cancellation of Pan Am, Robbie landed a role in the romantic comedy About Time, which also starred Bill Nighy and Rachel McAdams, and was offered the role in The Wolf of Wall Street less than a month later. She's also rumoured to be in negotiations to play Jane Porter in a new Tarzan movie.
What's next for Robbie? We're still to see the release of the comedy Focus, in which she stars alongside Will Smith. The two made headlines earlier this year after they got cosy in a photobooth on set together. But Robbie was quick to dispel rumours on Twitter. "Been working nonstop, just catching my breath. There's absolutely no truth to the ridiculous rumor in Star mag. It's disappointing that goofing around on set could be taken so out of context."
