Herbert Kessler, who was affectionately dubbed “Grandie” by his grandchildren, died peacefully at his home on the Gold Coast on February 1.
His death came amid a whirlwind week for Robbie, who was in London at the time for the Harley Quinn: Birds of Prey premiere on January 29, before attending the British Academy Film Awards on February 2, where she made a speech on behalf of award winner Brad Pitt.
Herbert was the husband of Robbie’s grandmother, Verna Kessler, who died in April last year.
Robbie, 29, flew from Los Angeles to Dalby in Queensland for her “Narnie’s” memorial in early May. During the trip she was also pictured alongside her mother, Sarie Kessler, and her brother Lachlan visiting Herbert at a retirement home on the Gold Coast.
The Oscar-nominated actress attended the Academy Awards this week with her cousin, Julia Chalmers, who was also Herbert’s granddaughter:
A local obituary says Herbert’s funeral will be held in Queensland tomorrow.
Robbie is currently in Panama City filming the upcoming Suicide Squad sequel.
The film will follow on from Birds of Prey, the DC Comics’ Harley Quinn spin-off, which made a tepid debut in US cinemas over the weekend, opening in No. 1 but below expectations with $49.5 million, according to studio estimates.
The less-than-expected opening has reportedly led to a hasty name change for the film: Originally titled Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn), the film is now going by H arley Quinn: Birds of Prey, an unprecedented last-minute change for a film already in cinemas.
Despite the fact Robbie is one of Hollywood’s most talked-about stars right now – on Monday she fronted up to the Oscars, where she was nominated for her second Academy Award – the film came in for a rocky landing. It had been expected to open around $75 million. It fared similarly overseas, grossing an estimated $71 million from 78 international markets.
Birds of Prey cost approximately $150 million to make. Cathy Yan directs the Suicide Squad spin-off, which Robbie also produced. Robbie stars as Quinn, the crazed criminal who after splitting with Joker is a solo vigilante. Reviews were mostly favourable, with an 80 per cent fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Audiences gave it a B-plus CinemaScore.
