Birthdays for Larry David (1947), Lindsay Lohan (1986) and Margot Robbie (1990)

Australian actress Margot Robbie was nominated for an Academy Award for her portrayal of American figure skater Tonya Harding in the biopic “I, Tonya” (2017). Robbie had previously gained international notice for her performance in Martin Scorsese’s “The Wolf of Wall Street” (2013), in which she acted opposite Leonardo DiCaprio. She also starred in such movies as “Whiskey Tango Foxtrot,” “The Legend of Tarzan,” and “Suicide Squad,” all released in 2016.

  • Before scoring a part on the Australian soap opera “Neighbours,” the role in which she first gained prominence, Robbie worked as a “sandwich artist” at a Subway restaurant in Melbourne; months after quitting the restaurant job, she filmed a commercial for Subway.
  • Although Robbie was a fan of ice hockey from an early age, the balmy climate of her Australian hometown restricted her to playing only field hockey until she moved to the United States, where she joined an amateur ice hockey team.
