Born in July 1990, Margot Robbie is one of the most famous Australian actresses in recent years. Her journey to stardom began in 2009 when she landed her first acting gig in the Australian-made I. C.

Since then, Margot has not stopped landing important roles and has even earned Golden Globe and Academy Award nominations.

For Margot, one of the best things about filming Babylon was finally acting opposite Brad Pitt. In 2019, the movie stars were both in Once Upon A Time In Hollywood. However, Babylon was the first time they had scenes together.

Speaking to Keisha, Margot said it was amazing and great. The actress excitedly told the actor, "Brad, we're finally going to do the scene together."

Overall, it was an exciting experience for Margot.

Diego Calva On Filming With Margot

Margot wasn't alone during her interview with Keisha. She was accompanied by her co-star Diego Calva, who plays Manny Torres, a Mexican-American film assistant, in Babylon. During the chat, Keisha asked the actor what it felt like to be doing a movie with Margot. Replying, Diego said it was his greatest acting experience.


According to him, Margot always put the level higher while filming, and it was really needed because director Damien wanted more. But, overall, Diego described it as the most beautiful challenge.

'Babylon's Plot And Release Date

The film will tell the story of how depravity, decadence, and outrageous excesses led to the rise and fall of several ambitious dreamers in 1920s Hollywood. Meanwhile, Babylon is scheduled to be released in the United States on December 23, 2022, by Paramount pictures.
