Margot Robbie has described Harley Quinn as one of the more ‘unpredictable’ members of the Suicide Squad.
Robbie is set to take on the role of Quinn for the first time this summer when the highly anticipated Suicide Squad hits the big screen.
I am looking forward to seeing the actress take on this character and she has dropped little hints as to what we can expect from her.
Speaking to the LA Times, the actress said: “She’s definitely one of the more unpredictable members of the squad. She also used to be a psychiatrist so she has an extensive knowledge of mental illnesses and how to manipulate people – I’m sorry, well, she has a lot of knowledge on how to profile people, pick their triggers, and as Harley Quinn she kind of utilizes that to just manipulate people and mess with them. She’s always picking someone to be dissecting and playing off and messing with.”
The movie sees the actress team up with director David Ayer for the first time while Will Smith, Jai Courtney, Viola Davis, Jared Leto, and Joel Kinnaman are just some of the other actors who are also on board.
Robbie went on to talk about the relationship between Quinn and the Joker, calling it toxic.
She continued: “It’s an incredibly dysfunctional relationship… She’s mad about him – like, literally, mad. She’s crazy. But she loves him. And it’s a really unhealthy, dysfunctional relationship. But an addictive one.”
It is going to be a busy summer period for Robbie as we are going to see her star in comedy Whiskey Tango Foxtrot and blockbuster The Legend of Tarzan, where she will take on the role of Jane Porter alongside Alexander Skarsgård, Samuel L. Jackson, and Christoph Waltz.
Suicide Squad is released 5th August.
