Probably one of the most bankable and busiest stars in the industry right now, Margot Robbie is currently riding high on the acclaim that her film, Bombshell has been receiving and already has the standalone Harley Quinn film, Birds of Prey rolling out soon this year.
On her role as Kayla Pospisil — an ambitious young Fox News producer who falls prey to Roger Ailes (John Lithgow), she said, “I didn’t understand her to begin with. But my process is to do a ton of research, consider every single option, know every single situation, scenario, thought and motivation inside and out, so I can step onto set and then let it all go.”
“I just love the sounds of her vowels — they’re incredible,” Robbie says. But Harris wasn’t her sole touchpoint: “Every day, I’d do the monologue from Legally Blonde, she says, citing Reese Witherspoon’s Elle Woods as the type of character who is “incredibly smart” but “underestimated because of their looks.”
During “Suicide Squad,” Robbie says she “fell in love with” Harley Quinn, though she didn’t understand why the wildly brilliant, unstable character would stay in a relationship with the Joker (played by Jared Leto), who “wants to kill her most of the time.”
“Harley has this unpredictable nature that means she could react in any way to any situation, which as an actor is just a gift,” Robbie says.
“But at the end of the day,” she adds, “it’s a really fun, badass group of women getting together. It’s a ride. It’s a crazy ride.”
We cannot wait to see Robbie in both these films and the Suicide Squad sequel soon.
