Australia’s Margot Robbie has landed on Forbes’ list of the most influential people under 30.

The 26-year-old actress, who starred in Suicide Squad in 2016 after previously appearing in The Big Short and The Wolf Of Wall Street, has a rising celebrity status in Hollywood and the Forbes nod reflects that.

As Harley Quinn in Suicide Squad, Robbie may have already scored her own spin-off film.

Robbie is currently on set in Los Angeles filming for I, Tonya, where she will play the role of disgraced US figure-skater Tonya Harding.

Australian born Mia Wasikowska, 27, is also on the list.

She starred in Crimson Peak and Alice Through the Looking Glass – her films tallying over $1.5 billion at the global box office. Her next role is in World War II thriller The Man with the Iron Heart.

They were joined on the list by Hillary Duff and reality TV star Kylie Jenner.

As well as starring in Keeping Up With The Kardashians, 19-year-old Jenner has her own cosmetics range and is the second-highest earner in her celebrity-filled family behind half-sister Kim Kardashian.

Duff first came to prominence when playing the lead role in teen sitcom Lizzie McGuire on the Disney Channel and has also starred in Cheaper By The Dozen among a number of hit films.

Also included in the list was gymnast Simone Biles, who won four gold medals and a bronze at the Rio Olympics.

The youngest name on the list was 14-year-old Maanasa Mendu, who has created a “leaf” device that harvests energy from sun, wind and rain.

Among the musicians on the list are Josh Dun and Tyler Joseph from Twenty One Pilots, and The Chainsmokers’ Drew Taggart.
