Margot Robbie is the talk of tinsel town this awards season. The beautiful newcomer has not only stunned as Leonardo DiCaprio's leading lady in The Wolf Of Wall Street, but she's been the toast of the red carpet, too.

But if you've got a hunch that Ms Robbie's face feels familiar, you'd be right. The 23-year-old cut her acting teeth as Donna Freedman in Neighbours (she went out with Ringo, remember?) from 2008 until 2011. From Erinsborough to Hollywood is a pretty big leap in just two years.

While Margot Robbie was nominated for a couple of Logie awards for her role in the Australian soap (which, let's face it, has a special place in all of our hearts), The Wolf Of Wall Street is up for a number of Oscars this year, including Best Picture. Which is kind of a massive deal.

The film is also currently at the top of the UK box office in its first week of release. The Neighbours TV studio must feel a very long way away now.

And it looks like this is just the beginning of big things for Margot. The Aussie actress recently replaced Amanda Seyfried in the lead role in the upcoming film Z For Zachariah, which also stars Chiwetel Ejiofor and Chris Pine.

Margot took to Twitter to tell her fans: 'Prep for Z for Zachariah is well and truly underway - I'm now officially a brunette and spent the day milking cows and driving tractors!'

This is one rising star we'll definitely be keeping our eye on..
