Margot Robbie wants to become a master fire twirler.

The 27-year-old Australian actress can currently be seen in biographical drama 'I, Tonya', in which she plays real-life disgraced US Olympic figure skater Tonya Harding, a role for which she had to learn how to ice skate proficiently.

Margot wants a new hobby and is determined to find time to learn how to manipulate fire after being mesmerised by fire twirlers whilst on vacation in the Philippines.

She said: ''I recently bought fire-twirling poles, because I really want to get good at it. When I was backpacking in the Philippines, there were heaps of fire twirlers on the beach, and it was so cool. I was like, Wow, I really want to do that!' ''

Margot - who is married Tom Ackerley - has become one of the most in-demand actresses and has three movies set for release in 2018, including period drama 'Mary Queen of Scots' in which she plays 'Queen Elizabeth I'.

The blonde screen starlet - who was catapulted to global fame by her performance in 'The Wolf of Wall Street' - can still remember when she got her first pay cheque when she moved to New York City and the pride she felt.

Speaking to the US issue of ELLE magazine, she shared: ''When I got to New York for the first time, I took my first pay cheque, walked straight into Tiffany's on Fifth Avenue, and bought an airplane charm that goes on my bracelet. It was the best feeling ever. I got my little blue box, and I got it for myself.''
