Margot Robbie plays the tragic actress Sharon Tate in the upcoming drama Once Upon A Time In Hollywood.
But despite the grisly backstory to her character, the Aussie actress was all smiles in between takes as she worked with Quentin Tarantino.
The 28-year-old actress was pictured on set in Los Angeles, driving a car as director Quentin Tarantino gave her pointers.
Sporting a deep tan and her blonde hair in a long, unlayered sixties style, Margot appeared to be dress in black as she drove a black car with one hand on the wheel and her other arm propped against the window.
Tarantino also appeared to be in good spirits, as he was pictured laughing while chatting to Margot.
The Oscar-nominated actress this week shared a first look image at her in costume as Charles Manson murder victim Sharon Tate.
Tate was amongst the victims of Mansons Family who went on a killing spree between 8 and 9 of August 1969.
The actress, who was eight and a half months pregnant at the time, was at her husband Roman Polanskis house when the group of Mansons devoted followers murdered her, her friends Wojciech Frykowski, coffee heiress Abigail Folger and celebrity hair stylist Jay Sebring, as well as was Steven Parent, a friend of the familys gardener.
The following night, Mansons followers Tex Watson, Susan Atkins, Leslie van Houten and Patricia Krenwinkel murdered Leno LaBianca and his wife Rosemary.
Once Upon A Time In Hollywood stars Leonardo DiCaprio as Rick Dalton, a star of a small-screen Western whose transition to the big screen didnt quite work out. Dalton is a neighbour of Sharon, and is contemplating moving to Italy to appear in low-budget Westerns when the movie finds him.
