Often described as Hollywood’s first It girl, Bow dropped out of school in a poverty-stricken area of Brooklyn in order to be a movie star, ultimately signing a contract with Paramount, where she became box-office catnip.On a personal level, she became notorious for her directness, various tabloid scandals, and chronic inability to fit in with her peers; “I’m a curiosity in Hollywood,” she once said.Margot - who will also be a producer - previously said about the role, 'it comes with a lot of baggage!' she told British Vogue.“I’m a big freak, because I’m myself!” In the first Babylon footage shown at CinemaCon in Las Vegas on 28 April, Robbie’s Bow is seen filming a gladiator epic in the desert before declaring languorously: “You don’t become a star.Two hundred cans of hairspray later, it was renamed The Camden Palace and transformed into a hot spot for the New Romantic movement.You either are one… or you ain’t.But with that come a lot of exciting ways to attack it.” Like Gilbert, though, Bow struggled to maintain the same level of fame when the talkies became de rigueur – with her name forever associated with Singin’ in the Rain ’s nasal, air-headed flapper Lina Lamont, a biting parody of Bow.
