Margot Robbie got her big break in 2008 on the Australian soap opera Neighbours. In the decade since she nabbed the role, Robbie has another two dozen roles under her belt, and she's also started her own production company.
The actress has a wide array of characters on her resume. Robbie played everything from a figure skater to a comic book villain in recent years. Among those characters, she certainly has a penchant for ambitious women with a cunning attitude. Should these Robbie roles find themselves under the Sorting Hat at Harry Potter’s Hogwarts house, many would find themselves in Slytherin...but certainly not all. Here are Margot Robbie Characters Sorted Into Their Hogwarts Houses.
Inspired by the real life of figure skater Tonya Harding, much of I, Tonya’s story comes from conjecture and rumor. What fans do see of Tonya in the movie however, makes her an easy sort into Slytherin.
Tonya had great ambition. Fostered by her mother, Tonya dreamed of being the best skater in the world ever since she was only three years old. She worked hard to get there, making her a candidate to be a Hufflepuff, but her repeated scheming to get an edge over her competition proved she didn’t always play fair. In fact, the nature of the story shows that both she and her ex-husband were unreliable narrators, making it hard to tell if everything the character says in the movie is the truth.
Jane admittedly doesn’t get a lot to do in the movie. More often than not she’s in a position where she needs to be rescued. However, that doesn’t mean Jane isn’t one smart cookie. Jane is someone who comes from a wealthy background, but she isn’t satisfied by staying inside her safe bubble. Instead, she wants to learn more about the world. That’s why she has no problem leaving England behind to raise a child in a small, remote village. She makes it into Ravenclaw due to her curious nature and her enduring love of learning new things.
The film Focus is about a pair of con artists who fall in love. When a swindler is at the center of the story, it’s hard to imagine they would fall into any house other than Slytherin.
Though Margot Robbie’s character Jess is a quick study who wants to learn more about this criminal world, and she’s as hardworking as they come, she doesn’t quite fit into Ravenclaw or Hufflepuff. Likewise, her bravery is often borne out of necessity, where she uses her skills to trick those in her way. Her ambitions of wealth and happiness, as well as her ability to lie and steal, fall right in line with Slytherin.
Though Michelle Williams is the star of Suite Francaise, Margot Robbie has a supporting role. Like Williams’ character, Robbie’s Celine falls for a German soldier occupying their small French town during World War II.
Celine is from a poor farming family. With all of her brothers off to war, she is the one who spends most of her time working the farm. She supports her family and believes in fairness. As a result, she harbors growing resentment toward the wealthy women in town who don’t have to work to support their family. Ultimately, Celine’s a firm Hufflepuff.
Though her lines are few, her presence is strong in Once Upon A Time In Hollywood. This fictionalized account of history sees Robbie bring actress Sharon Tate to life.
It’s tempting to sort Sharon into Hufflepuff with her work ethic and her strong circle of friends. However, Tate belongs in Gryffindor. Her bravery isn’t the traditional dragon-slaying type, but instead is that of a certain vulnerability that comes with being an actress in the '60s. Tate seeks the spotlight the same way Gryffindors seek out heroics. After all, she attends a movie hoping the theater employees will recognize her from the screen.
Annie works as a waitress by day, but she’s an assassin by night. Easily able to fit in anywhere, Annie can also get anyone to trust her, which is their mistake to make. Her goal is one held by a lot of people in her profession: revenge. She spends the movie putting the pieces into place with diabolical glee that fuels her desire.
Before Margot Robbie became known for her big budget movies, she landed a role in the short-lived series Pan Am. Set in 1963, the show followed a group of stewardesses. Robbie played the younger sister of a veteran stewardess who was new to the job.
Laura began the series as naive and clinging to her big sister after feeling guilty for calling off a wedding. Not wanting to make waves, Laura tried her best to keep the peace and be on her best behavior. She found a solid connection to the other women at work while she getting to explore the world. Laura couldn’t be anything other than a Hufflepuff.
The main focus of About Time is a young man who learns he can travel to his own past any time he wants. A small part of that man’s story is Charlotte, and she is Margot Robbie’s big screen debut.
At first glance, Robbie’s Charlotte appears to be easygoing and fair, a candidate for Hufflepuff. Charlotte lets Tim down easy twice via time travel. But when she meets up with him again years later, she shows no concern for his unhappy sister, who is supposedly her close friend. Likewise, she abandons her own friend on the off chance that Tim will spend the night with her. Her flippant attitude and lack of loyalty makes the Sorting Hat lean toward Slytherin.
There’s a tendency among pop culture fans to sort villains into Slytherin. After all, the Harry Potter novels like to remind readers that it’s the house of most evil wizards. However, not all villains have the same motivations, and sometimes a villain isn’t strictly a villain. Harley Quinn certainly doesn’t fit into Slytherin.
Though she can be manipulative at times, Harley isn’t particularly calculating or cunning. Instead, much of her motivation stems from loyalty. Despite the way he treats her, Harley holds steadfast to her relationship with the Joker. Likewise, she doesn’t completely abandon the Suicide Squad when given the chance. Instead, she tries to motivate them all to be the good guys for once.
No list of Margot Robbie roles would be complete without her breakout performance in The Wolf Of Wall Street.
She plays Naomi, the kind of person who sees what she wants, and lets nothing get in her way to achieve it. She gets Leonardo DiCaprio’s Jordan to leave his wife and devote his fortune to her. Like Jordan, there aren’t many lines Naomi won’t cross if she knows they’re a means to an end. Naomi’s scheming and ambition makes her a Slytherin, just like her onscreen love interest.
