Margot Robbie’s brother Cameron reveals the advice the Hollywood actress has given him as he follows in her footsteps by starring in Neighbors
Neighbors star Cameron Robbie finds it ‘comforting’ to lean on his sister Margot Robbie for career advice.
Starring on the long-running Australian soap, the actor is excited to follow in the footsteps of the award-winning star, who previously played Donna Freedman in Neighbours.
Speaking about the advice he received from his sister, he told RadioTimes.com: “Margot, like many of my industry friends or go-to professionals, says something similar about hard work, training hard, kind, grateful and enjoy of the experience.

“It’s always reassuring to know that if I ever need her, she’s just a phone call away.”
Margot, 31, has become one of Hollywood’s most in-demand actresses in recent years.
But Cameron doesn’t feel like her success has put any additional pressure on him.
He said: “I’ve been working in and around movie sets, behind the camera, since I was in high school and I’ve always studied acting and film ever since.

“There is definitely a strong ‘will’ to do well with my job and grow with my abilities. But no, I don’t put any pressure on myself for her success, just my own expectation that I work hard, pursue what I like and make it meaningful.’
Cameron also admitted it was a surreal experience when he first joined the cast of Neighbors.
He explained: “It’s a bit surreal when I think about the longevity of the show and what role it played in my own life growing up. However, as a young actor in Australia you tend to be aware and certainly have conversations about a show like Neighbours.
“But to experience it, you definitely realize that you have to find your feet and get off the ground running. Fortunately, I work with some great and talented people, I really enjoyed the experience and what I’ve been able to learn so far.’
