From Harley Quinn to the Virgin Queen, Margot Robbie is almost unrecognisable as she takes on the role of Elizabeth I.

The Aussie star is resplendent in a fiery ginger wig perched on top of her head as the English monarch, on set on the new movie about Mary, Queen of Scots.

She was snapped yesterday in London, complete with pale, pock-marked complexion, and what looks to be a prosthetic nose into the bargain too.

Fans were… erm… surprised by the transformation.




Robbie is starring opposite Saoirse Ronan as Mary Stuart, cousin of Elizabeth, and who was revealed in new pictures from the movie last week.

Elsewhere, ‘Dunkirk’ star Jack Lowden plays Lord Darnley, Mary’s second husband, ‘Downton Abbey’s Brendan Coyle is the 4th Earl of Lennox, Darnley’s father, and David Tennant plays nobleman Anthony Babington, who was convicted of plotting to assassinate Elizabeth with Mary.
