Margot Robbie to Play Disgraced Figure Skater Tonya Harding in New Biopic

Margot Robbie is set to play disgraced figure skater Tonya Harding in the new biopic I, Tonya, EW reports.

At 21 years old, Tonya was one of the best US Figure Skaters in the world, and was a favorite to win the 1994 Winter Olympics.

One month before the Olympics, Tonya‘s ex husband and her bodyguard paid someone to attack fellow skater Nancy Kerrigan at the U.S. Figure Skating Championships. Nancy had to withdraw from the competition. Tonya was eventually banned from the U.S. Figure Skating Association for her hindering the investigation.
