Goodbye Christopher Robin hits theaters this Fall.
Newlywed Margot Robbie is back at work and has been spotted on the set of her new film, I Tonya.
The actress was looking a far cry from her usual glamorous self, dressed in character as the infamous Olympic figure skater Tonya Harding.
Sporting a classic 90s look in high-waisted jeans, a blue sweater and a frizzy blonde wig, Margot also appeared to be sporting facial prosthetics to get her further into the character.
The movie will follow Harding as she trains for the 1994 winter Olympics before the infamous attack on rival skater Nancy Kerrigan.
Kerrigan was attacked by a hitman hired by Harding’s ex-husband Jeff Gillooly after a training session, but he failed to break her leg and she went on to win silver in the Olympics while Harding placed 8th.
Gilloy took a plea bargain against Harding and was released from prison after just one year. Harding pleaded guilty to hindering the prosecution and received three years probation, 500 hours community service, a $US160,000 fine and a lifetime ban from the sport.
I, Tonya is scheduled to hit cinemas in 2018 and also stars Sebastian Stan and Allison Janney – the role of Nancy Kerrigan is yet to be confirmed.
