Date: 5 January 2017 | 7:37 pm
“Wolf of Wallstreet” and “Suicide Squad” star Margot Robbie is busy on the ice rink practicing for her role in the upcoming movie “I, Tonya”. You have the chance to work on the upcoming film that will center on figure skater Tonya Harding’s attack on rival skater Nancy Kerrigan in 1994. The movie casting call looking to fill the roles of figure skaters and a ballet teacher. Shooting is taking place in Atlanta, Georgia. Selected models and actors will be paid.
About “I, Tonya”
According to Deadline, Harding emerged from a poor upbringing and rough childhood in Portland, OR to rise to the top of the sport of figure skating with determination and athleticism that allowed her to become the first American woman to complete the triple axel in major competitions. She won the 1991 U.S. Figure Skating Championships and second in the World Championships, and was set for a showdown against fellow American skater Nancy Kerrigan. The fairy tale turned nightmarish, after Kerrigan was attacked by thugs who tried to break her leg. It turned out the culprit was Harding’s husband, who implicated his wife as he tried to stay out of jail. Kerrigan wound up winning the silver medal at that Olympics, and the completely distracted Harding finished eighth as her life was circling the drain. As the ensuing scandal unfolded, the USFSA stripped Harding of her 1994 championship and banned her for life.
