And now that filming has begun, Robbie took to Instagram to share our first peek at her doomed actress dressed in '60s garb.

For comparison, here's what the real Sharon Tate looked like.

Margot Robbie has given fans a first look of her as Sharon Tate in Quentin Tarantino's upcoming film, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.

While the late actress' family members weren't always keen on the film, given the tragic circumstances, her sister Debra Tate recently gave Tarantino their blessing after the director approached her about the project.

Standing against a yellow backdrop and sporting Tate's signature hairstyle, a black turtleneck and matching skirt and go-go boots, Robbie closely resembles the brutally murdered star.

Originally, Once Upon A Time In Hollywood was scheduled for release on the 50th anniversary of Tate's death - but the date has since been brought forward by two weeks, meaning it's getting a 26 July release next year in the US.

The film also marks Margot's second time starring alongside Leonardo DiCaprio (How could we ever forget this pair in The Wolf of Wall Street?).

The film, which is due for release in 2019, is centred around the "Manson Family" murders of 1969.

Robbie's character plays a central role in Tarantino's movie, which takes place in Los Angeles in 1969, at the height of hippy Hollywood.

DiCaprio will play Rick Dalton, former star of a western TV series, while Pitt will play his longtime stunt double, Cliff Booth.

Al Pacino, Dakota Fanning, Kurt Russell, James Marsden, Damien Lewis, Burt Reynolds, Luke Perry and Tim Roth appear in the supporting cast.

'Both are struggling to make it in a Hollywood they don't recognize anymore. But Rick has a very famous next-door neighbour.
