STRIPLV: How did you get started, then, in the business? ROBBIE: I had a job in a surf shop, and around the corner, a couple of guys were shooting this movie. By coincidence, one of them introduced me to an agent, and that led to a few guest roles on TV shows. 
And then I was cast in Neighbours (an Aussie soap opera which launched the careers of Russell Crowe and the Hemsworth brothers) straight out of high school. That was my acting training camp. I would often
 have to learn up to 60 pages of dialogue in a week by heart and work five days a week and do 16 or 17-hour days. But it was the kind of experience I needed, and it was a very important step for me. STRIPLV: Your colleagues have often said that even though you can be very light-hearted and congenial, you take your work and career very seriously. ROBBIE: I’ve always put a lot of effort and thought in the kinds of roles and projects I want to be part of. I’ve had a very good team behind me, and for me, it’s always been important to be very strategic about my career. There’s a lot of luck, but you also need an idea of what kind of career you want to pursue. STRIPLV: You work a lot, and you’ve been living in London and the U.S. for many years now. Do you ever get homesick for Australia? ROBBIE: I’m always homesick. But it’s not the same as when I was 17 and moved to Melbourne, and I didn’t tell anyone. Now it’s this feeling of not being part of all those crazy dinner conversations we would have. Whenever I go back home, we get right back into it and we all trade stories about what’s going on in our lives. It’s surreal.
