Margot Robbie is the name at the tip of everybody’s tongue at the moment following the runaway success of Barbie, and so many will understandably be wondering where they might see her again?
Margot only has one upcoming project at the moment, that being Queen of the Air, which will see her play famed trapeze artist Lillian Leitzel, but in a recent interview with E!, Australian icon Kylie Minogue posited a tantalizing possibility. Despite being a major star for decades, no one has yet made a biopic on Kylie, but when the Australian singer was probed as to who would play her in a potential film, she had one name on her lips.

Responding to the question, the ‘Padam Padam’ hitmaker enthused: “Margot Robbie in my dreams. She’d have the Australian accent down, that’s for sure.”
It’s not only an Australian accent that Kylie and Margot share as both stars rose to fame on the popular soap opera Neighbours before they found themselves catapulted into global fame.

Kylie played one of the soap’s most iconic characters, tomboy Charlene Mitchell, and her relationship and marriage to Scott Robinson, played by Jason Donovan proved to be very popular with viewers, with the episode of their wedding attracting nearly 20 million viewers when it aired in the United Kingdom.

Kylie’s career is also going from strength to strength at the moment with the ‘All the Lovers’ songstress recently confirming a residency at Las Vegas, sharing the news at a top-secret event held at the Pendry Hotel in West Hollywood, where HELLO! spoke with the legend herself.
“I always thought [a residency] would happen at some point. So, now is the right time to be in the Voltaire environment,” she told us at the event.

“I think if I had done this earlier in my career it might have been too early. If I’d done it too much later I’d regret it being too much later. Right now, in my life, in my career, it feels like the perfect point, the perfect moment where, I’ve got the catalogue, I’ve got the history, but I’ve also got the drive and the ambition to go so much further.”
Kylie also shared the news via Instagram, writing “VEGAS BABY! So excited to headline the all-new @VoltaireLV at @VenetianVegas starting this fall. See you there! #MoreThanJustAResidency.”
