Individual Life of Tom Ackerley

In Surrey, England, on January 1, 1990, Tom Ackerley was born. He’d always wanted to work in the entertainment business. He enrolled at Godalming College to earn a degree in cinema studies in order to follow that dream.
On the 2014 British-French-Belgian romantic drama film “Suite Française” set in 2013, Ackerley met Margot Robbie for the first time. She played a supporting part, while he served as the third assistant director. This was before she rose to fame on a global scale because to her role in “The Wolf of Wall Street.” She was the first to express interest.

Later that year, she visited London for the ‘The Wolf of Wall Street’ premiere, where she met Ackerley and other members of the ‘Suite Francaise’ cast. They came to the conclusion that they should live together quickly. Robbie said, “I don’t live anywhere,” when someone pointed out that she didn’t reside in London. I’ll go.”

Following that, a group of six people—Ackerley, four additional assistant directors, Robbie’s assistant, and Robbie herself—moved into a three-bedroom home in south-west London’s Clapham neighborhood. They began dating while she was filming “The Legend of Tarzan” around a year later. They kept it a secret from their housemates and neither of them took it seriously. It did generate a scene when they eventually found out, and some of them speculated that this might be the end of the group. The group’s dynamic did not, however, change significantly right away. Ackerley and Robbie were wed in a secret ceremony on Australia’s Gold Coast in December 2016. Before eventually leaving their Clapham home, they continued to reside there. They currently call Los Angeles, California, in the United States home. Ackerley is a devoted rugby and golf aficionado.
