It may not look good, but it turns out that it is Margot Robbie he is a player. On the promotional circuit for Barbie (before the SAG-AFTRA strike), the actress shared one title she played recently. However, his choice of game might not be exactly what you want to hear, due to his links to a very controversial figure.
During an interview with Maude Garrett, Robbie spoke about his deep interest in the Harry Potter franchise. She revealed that she was a Gryffindor, that she listened to Stephen Fry’s audiobooks every night, and that she also sang Legacy of Hogwarts. The point was made quickly and the content remained on audiobooks, so the actress was unable to give much more detail about her gameplay habits, or whether or not she was enjoying her time with him.
While some fans praised the actress for being “one of them” and being a bit more relatable, others were upset when they found out that the actress recently played Harry Potter game, especially since it lines JK Rowling’s pockets. Then again, so do most of the others Wizarding World the media she consumes.
Legacy of Hogwarts it was controversial long before its release as a result of Rowling’s troubling commentary on the transgender community. There were calls to boycott the game, but it eventually became the most played title on Steam after breaking the record for most concurrent players. Rowling has made some comments about the criticism leveled at her, saying that there were fans who appreciated her opinion and that she doesn’t care about her legacy.
Luckily for Robbie, there was little backlash on social media after she admitted she was passionate Harry Potter fans. Most people celebrated that she was a die-hard fan, agreeing that Fry’s audiobooks were much better than Jim Dale’s.
The actor opened up about his interest in the Harry Potter franchises from time to time. Back in 2020, ET Canada reported that Robbie’s husband, Tom Ackerley, was an extra in the films. She also said she wanted glasses so she could look like the boy who lived.
Later, Warner Bros. Discovery revealed plans to Harry Potter series for max. Considering the amount of work Robbie has done for the studio through DC and Barbiethere could be a chance that the studio will consider her for a role.
Currently, you will be able to see Margot Robbie in Barbie when it hits theaters on July 21, 2023.
