Julianne Nicholson Thinks We Need More Women Like Tonya Harding

He also shared a video for the D major version, set to footage of Harding's performance at the 1991 U.S. Figure Skating Championships.

I, Tonya follows the story of Harding and her ex-husband, Jeff Gillooly. Ever since Harding was forced out of the professional skating world in 1994, the former Olympic athlete has kept a relatively low profile.

She may not be changing it yet, but Robbie is carving her niche with transformative roles like Harley, Tonya and Queen Elizabeth I (in Mary, Queen of Scots, expected November 2, 2018) and her LuckyChap Entertainment production company (co-founded with husband Tom Ackerley).

In releasing the track on Wednesday, Stevens also included a note about the former figure skater and boxer who is the 1991 USA champion and 1991 World Championship silver medallist.

Camera IconMargot Robbie starring as Tonya Harding.

Margot Robbie portrays Tonya Harding in "I, Tonya" opening Friday. She was a reality TV star before such a thing even existed. Really, really incredible. She was very complimentary about what we pulled off, and she was really kind about my skating even though I'm nowhere near as good as I should be.

I, Tonya stars Robbie, Allison Janney, Sebastian Stan, Julianne Nicholson and Bobby Cannavale. "She was really sweet".

She confessed: "I knew, from that point on, any time mum asked me to help her move a giant snake to just do it". Harding later saw the completed project before the film's premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival.

"She went away and after 10 minutes I was like, 'Where's mum?' After a while. She said she laughed and she cried and there's obviously parts she doesn't agree with", Robbie told Deadline. Harding took first place.

This isn't the first time Harding has put herself out into he public eye since 1994. However, Harding would end up giving up boxing after a few years, attributing the shortness to her asthma. In 2009, Harding spoke to Oprah Winfrey about her volatile upbringing and career. She did that and more. She also raced vintage automobiles (setting a record by driving a Ford Model A over 97 miles per hours on the Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah). Hopefully, this means fans will get to see more of Tonya Harding in 2018.
