Margot Robbie quits!

Ramsay Street starlet Margot Robbie has confirmed rumours that she is leaving Neighbours after almost three years of playing Donna Freedman to pursue Hollywood dreams.

“I want to go to America; it’s always been my goal to work in Hollywood. It’s the one stage in my life where I have absolutely nothing holding me down,” she says.

Rumours have been swirling for months about her departure after on-screen husband Sam Clark (Ringo Brown) quit back in July to pursue his music career, following in the footsteps of other Neighbours stars who turned to pop, like Kylie Minogue, Natalie Imbruglia, Holly Valance and Delta Goodrum.

Margot will no doubt be hoping L.A. isn’t already at saturation point with other Aussie soap starlets, although she says she is optimistic of her future career goals.

“I have plenty of friends over there so I’ll have plenty of couches to crash on” she laughs.

Donna Freedman will be seen on our screens until early 2011, which is also when the long-running show will be shafted to Network Ten’s digital channel, Eleven.

JUST what was Ramsey St rogue Paul Robinson scheming when he visited Springvale last week?

That was the question on everyone’s lips when the cast and crew of Neighbours dropped in to film scenes at the Greater Dandenong council chambers.

Erinsborough favourites Karl, Donna, Toadie and Steph – otherwise known as Alan Fletcher, Margot Robbie, Ryan Maloney and Carla Bonner – were among the cast members on site.

Kelly Davis, of Fremantle Media, said the location was used for an upcoming courtroom battle.

“The City Hall building was perfect for the exterior shots and the council chambers converted beautifully into the courtroom interior,” Ms Davis said.

The Springvale episode is due to air in late October.
