PICS: Margot Robbie transforms into infamous figure skater

Cape Town – Margot Robbie is barely recognisable for her latest movie role. 

The Australian actress will play disgraced figure skater Tonya Harding in the biopic I, Tonya.

Margot was pictured on set completely transformed.

With the help of prosthetics, a curly wig, a body suit and 90s fashion she looked every bit the former skater.

The film will centre on the 1994 attack on Harding's rival Nancy Kerrigan. 

Harding's ex-husband Jeff Gillooly and her bodyguard Shawn Eckhardt infamously hired a man to try break Kerrigan's leg in an attempt to stop her competing at the 1994 Winter Olympics.

Although the blow - which was struck above Kerrigan's right knee - did not result in a breakage, Kerrigan was left with a severely bruised leg and had to quit the national competition, which Harding went on to win.

Margot will both star and produce the film which is expected to be released in 2018.
