Alan Fletcher, Margot Robbie's former 'Neighbours' co-star, says he always knew she was destined for stardom
Margot Robbie's 'Neighbours' co-stars always knew she was destined for stardom.
The 'Suicide Squad' actress found fame on the long-running Australian soap and Alan Fletcher - who plays Dr Karl Kennedy - says he could see her star potential from day one.
Speaking on the Absolute Radio Christian O'Connell Breakfast Show, he said: "Margot I would say is probably one of my favourite actors that's ever been on the show. From the first moment she stepped onto the set at 'Neighbours' it was quite clear to Jackie Woodburn, who plays Susan, and myself that she was destined for stardom. I don't know if there isn't an acting brief that Margot can't fill. It's thrilling to see her career blossom the way it has."
Margot played Donna Freedman in the soap for three years before moving to the US to star in the short-lived TV series 'Pan-Am'.
This led to parts in movies 'About Time' and her breakout role in 'The Wolf of Wall Street', opposite Leonardo DiCaprio.
Meanwhile, Alan called into the Christian O'Connell Breakfast Show as part of the Who's Calling Christian? segment, which gives celebrities a chance to win £20,000 for their chosen charity.
Last year's competition was won by 'Game of Thrones' star Maisie Williams.
