The actor has just revealed a first look of her character in Once Upon A Time in Hollywood, director Quentin Tarantino's upcoming film slated for a July 2019 release.
Robbie stars as the doomed young actress Sharon Tate, who saw a premature and tragic end to her life as one of the first victims of the infamous Manson Murders in 1969, led by cult leader Charles Manson's 'family' of disciples. Tate was eight and a half months pregnant when she was killed.
As well as Robbie, the film promises an eyewatering cast including Brad Pitt, Leonardo Di Caprio, Dakota Fanning, Al Pacino, Damian Lewis and Burt Reynolds. It's currently unclear whether Roman Polanski, the controversial film director who was Tate's husband when she died, will appear in the film.
Tarantino sets his movie not within the heart of a whodunnit murder investigation, instead using the tragic events as a backdrop to tell his own story of stardom and corruption in the industry. The director describes the movie as: 'a story that takes place in Los Angeles in 1969, at the height of hippy Hollywood. The two lead characters are Rick Dalton (DiCaprio), former star of a Western TV series, and his longtime stunt double Cliff Booth (Pitt). Both are struggling to make it in a Hollywood they don’t recognise anymore. But Rick has a very famous next-door neighbour… Sharon Tate.'
Once Upon A Time in Hollywood will be release on 26 July 2019 in the UK. Stay tuned for more sartorial successes and hopefully some kind of justice for the ghosts of Hollywood past.
