Will Margot be the next Bond girl ? Australian star Robbie tipped to follow in the footsteps of Halle Berry and Ursula Andress as rumours swirl around 007 role. Several of Hollywood ' s biggest male actors have been suspected to take over the role from Craig, with Tom Hiddleston, Tom Hardy and Idris Elba names all in the mix.

"Robbie has all it takes to go to the top,” said film critic and entertainment reporter Stephen Schaefer, who writes for the Boston Herald.

But Schaefer isn’t convinced Robbie has reached the same status as Hollywood's current It-girl quite yet.

“…What Emma Stone possesses is this innate, all-American girl quality where she seems like a regular person who might be your friend. Stone's a movie star, but a down-to-earth one and that is something that can't be bottled or packaged."

That said, Robbie made a dazzling film debut with her role as Naomi Lapaglia, the sexy, feisty wife of Leonardo DiCaprio's Jordan Belfort character in 2013's "The Wolf of Wall Street," adding her to the list of memorable performances by women in director Martin Scorsese's films, such as Sharon Stone in "Casino" or Cathy Moriarty in "Raging Bull."

Johnny Depp: A Star in Crisis and the Insane Story of His "Missing" Millions

  Johnny Depp: A Star in Crisis and the Insane Story of His Without a fire sale, Depp - then arguably the biggest star in Hollywood and certainly one of the best paid, thanks to the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise - would never be able to meet his obligations.Early one afternoon in October 2012, Jake Bloom and Joel Mandel left their respective Beverly Hills offices, slipped into their luxury cars and embarked on the roughly 30-minute journey to the Hollywood Hills compound of their client, Johnny Depp. Bloom was a rumpled and graying lawyer whose disheveled style camouflaged an intellect exercised on behalf of such luminaries as Martin Scorsese and Sylvester Stallone.

Margot Robbie , Actress: Suicide Squad. Margot Elise Robbie was born on July 2, 1990 in Dalby, Queensland, Australia to Scottish parents. Her mother, Sarie Kessler, is a physiotherapist, and her father, is Doug Robbie . She comes from a family of four children, having two brothers and one [on doing nudity] It ' s not just with doing a naked scene, but any scene where you feel like you're going to make a fool of yourself. I just say, "You gotta go all out, you need to fully commit to this." Because if you half-ass it , it will look so stupid. But if you do it with complete conviction, often times you can pull it off.

Robbie Robbie & Associates on the Gold Coast appointed administrators on April 10 and has now gone into liquidation. The company' s only director is Lyn Robbie , 58, and her husband Wayne, 61, is also reportedly involved in the business. Wayne is the brother of Margot Robbie ' s father Doug, 63. It is not clear how much it owes - but the Gold Coast Bulletin reported it has 'hundreds of thousands of dollars held in company trust accounts'. The money was held for 32 tenants and landlords including wealthy developers and a company linked to artist Ken Done, according to the newspaper.

"She can do just about anything, big budget, indie, and she leaves it all on the screen," said Candace Havens, an entertainment reporter for KSCS 96.3. "She's fearless and at the same time seems to be fairly strategic in the roles she's taking on."

Among the roles she's adding to her filmography are Queen Elizabeth opposite Saoirse Ronan's Mary Stuart in the upcoming drama “Mary Queen of Scots." The drama tells the story of Mary Stuart's attempt to overthrow her cousin Elizabeth I, Queen of England.

Robbie will also be reprising her role as Harley Quinn in a film that will showcase the top female villains from the DC stable, titled “Gotham City Sirens." In addition, she's currently filming the biopic, “I, Tonya,” in which she plays controversial Olympic skater Tonya Harding.

"I think Hollywood likes to see actresses who take on diverse roles," added Havens. "They can star in a big blockbuster, but also knock it out of the park in indie pics. But there's also the element of how they appear in the public eye. [With] their social media and interviews, it is all about perception.”

Robbie has more than 960,000 Twitter followers, though she only follows 21 accounts and hasn’t tweeted since March 5. Her Instagram account is more active, and she posts regularly. She has a staggering 11.8 million followers there.

Stone, meanwhile, who many see as today’s top starlet, has shied away from social media and has no verified accounts.

Nevertheless, Havens suggested Stone is seen as accessible by her fans, and Robbie also shares some of those same qualities.

“Robbie has the same sort of accessibility [as Emma Stone] that appeals to men and women,” Havens explained. “The same sort of charm Stone has. So as long as she continues on that path and makes good choices, she should be golden."
