Robbie previously revealed some of the figures from Hollywood's history that she turned to for inspiration.
"Something that really struck me when researching for this, I watched Wings, which is a movie that Clara Bow was in, and Clara Bow largely inspired my character," Robbie explained to ComicBook.com. "And it's the first Best Picture winner ever from 1927. And to see that movie and it be better than 90% of the movies I've ever seen in my life, it's just like, God, that was almost a hundred years ago, and look what they could do. It's so cool."
