In her first ever live action film debut, Harley Quinn will make her presence known in the DCEU alongside an unlikely group of villains in David Ayer's Suicide Squad. Recently, actress Margot Robbie spoke to Cineplex about just how crazy Dr. Harleen Quinzel is. “Harley is creepy, violent, crazy — all of the things that I aspire to be!” jokes Robbie. “No. It’s the fun of living vicariously through someone who is doing things that I would never do in real life.” Robbie seems to be taking the role of Harley Quinn seriously and she's having fun while doing it.
This isn't the first time Margot Robbie has worked with Will Smith. The two previously worked together as the stars of the film, Focus. Robbie went on to talk about reuniting with her focus co-star. “I enjoyed working with Will so, so much that I was overjoyed when I heard that we would be working together again,” Robbie said enthusiastically. “I actually texted him when I heard he was in negotiations to be in Suicide Squad and kept peer-pressuring him, ‘You’d better be taking this movie!’ He obviously signed on for his own reasons, but I was so incredibly happy that we got to do Round Two. He’s awesome on set and awesome off set. He’s just a really, really good person.” It's good to know that the camaraderie between the two actors is still there from their previous film. What do you think about Margot's comments about playing Harley Quinn? Are you excited to see her in Suicide Squad?
