    Margot Robbie Often Channels Animals


    The ‘Babylon’ director Damien Chazelle has created a “fully animalistic” role of the character Nellie LeRoy. And he wanted someone of such a demeanor. “I needed someone…utterly fearless—I had a sense that she would attack it,” he says. “There’s this sort of ravenous physical bravado to her. On the other hand, she’s also the most technically skilled thespian you could hope to work with as a director,” Chazelle explained.

    And it was not an easy task for even Margot Robbie. “I’ve never worked that hard in my life,” the actress said about her role in Babylon. “[I was] shattered by the end of that job,” Robbie added. The star shared one of her secrets for getting into the role-channeling animals. For Nellie in ‘Babylon’, she had channeled two creatures- an octopus and a honey badger. Octopus for its fluid and transformative feature and the latter for being a fighter and thick-skinned.
