Robbie plays Harding — who was ban from staking after she conspired with her ex-husband and bodyguard [Jeff Gillooly] to break fellow skater Nancy Kerrigan‘s legs ahead of the 1994 Winter Olympics — in the bio/sport drama. Margot stars alongside, Sebastian Stan, who plays Harding’s ex-husband in the film, as well as, Allison Janney, 58, who portrays Harding’s mother.
“It’s scary playing a real life person especially when that person is still very much alive,” Robbie recently told ET. “Everyone has a recollection of what they think happened, and it’s kind of fun and interesting to show a different side of that story and maybe a side to Tonya that people weren’t expecting to see.”
In order to get in tip top shape for her role, Robbie spoke directly with Harding, who gave her some valuable advice. “I was like, ‘I’ve been working on my legs. I’m trying to get stronger in my legs.’ She’s like, ‘Forget that, worry about your core strength.’ I was like, ‘OK, I’ll do more sit ups,’” Robbie recalled, adding that she did at least 100 sit ups a day.”
Despite being clubbed in the knee, Kerrigan, 48, eventually recovered and ended up winning a silver medal at the Olympics. As for Harding? — The U.S. Figure Skating Association banned her for life from skating.
