Margot played Donna, who was originally a guest character before being promoted to a cast regular and remaining in the show for three years, during which she received to Logie Award nominations.

Donna first arrived on Ramsay Street as a Ty Harper groupie who desperately seeks approval and often tries too hard to get it by putting all of her focus into her love for Ty. Margot previously opened up about their similarities, saying: "[Donna]'s fiery and outgoing and I'm a bit like that. Sometimes I can be too loud and say things when I shouldn't. But I don't stalk people. Other than that, we're kind of similar."
