Margot Robbie found it difficult to act as Sharon Tate for Hollywood’s Once Upon a Time film. The Australian actress was used to playing gloomy, pained characters. The cheerful actress Tate, murdered by the Manson family in 1969, was very different.
“It was a very strange challenge,” 28-year-old Robbie told Vogue. “I find it much easier to play a dark and angry role.” She did that for example in the film I, Tonya, about figure skater Tonya Harding. “Now I had to do the opposite.”
Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, the ninth film by Quentin Tarantino, is about a TV actor who tries to get a foothold in Hollywood in the late 1960s. The film had its world premiere in Cannes recently. Once Upon a Time Hollywood can be seen in Dutch cinemas from mid-August.
