Margot Robbie, star of Suicide Squad, is in Atlanta, Georgia channeling figure skater Tonya Harding for her new movie “I, Tonya”. New spots have just opened up and a new kids casting call for the film has been released. An audition notice for male and female child figure skaters is searching for local kids. The team is searching for kids and young teens who are between the ages of 7 and 14 years old. Filming will be on Tuesday, January 17th. The movie will tell the story of the attack on Nancy Kerrigan by rival figure skater Tonya Harding.
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”.
