Neighbours star Margot Robbie has revealed she begged the show’s writers to let her character go off the rails.
The actress, who plays kooky teenager Donna Freedman in the Australian soap, said she’s love to get her teeth into a dramatic storyline – but the show’s child-friendly rating makes it difficult.
She said: “I asked the scriptwriters if she could go off the rails and go to rehab or something!”
She continued: “They said it’s difficult to do those sorts of storylines and keep it G-rated but I’d love something really dramatic like that to happen.”
However, she gushed about how much she enjoys playing her alter ego.
“She’s great. She’s a bit crazy. I’m really glad I get to play her and not an average, boring teenage girl. You can be an average, boring teenage girl every other day of the week. It’s fun to be able to say and do these things you normally wouldn’t.”
