Up-and-coming Italian American actress Francesca Ruscio has sent out a series of Tweets which led to speculation that she may have landed the role of The Huntress in warner Bros. and director Cathy Yan's Birds of Prey movie.

The first Tweet below, in particular, is worded in a way which suggests she's actually going to play the character, and the fact that it was liked by Margot Robbie (Harley Quinn) only fueled the online chatter.

However, it now seems clear that Ruscio is only campaigning to play Helena Bertinelli in the DC film.





Ruscio has had small roles in the likes of Succession and Made in Chinatown, and will appear in upcoming features Bare Knuckle Brawler and Caesar's Ring.
