From what we've seen in the trailers for the upcoming Suicide Squad, the first big screen version of Harley Quinn looks like she's going to be a fascinating character. Which is why it's not surprising that newcomer to the DC Cinematic Universe Margot Robbie — who is bringing Harley Quinn to life — isn't quite done exploring the role.
Talking to Fandango managing editor Erik Davis at CinemaCon, the Australian actress expressed her love for the character, who she's hoping to play again as soon as the opportunity presents itself.
'I Am So Not Done Playing Her'
When asked if she was already planning to come back as Harley Quinn for future installments of the DC franchise, Robbie didn't specify whether she had already signed up for any more movies, but did insist that she was just getting started:
"I am so not done playing her yet. I will do whatever I can to keep playing Harley for another couple of years. Until my body gives out and I can't do it anymore."
Now that's dedication.
Robbie Knows Her Character Very Well
And she did prove how invested she was in her part when she discussed the psychology of Harley Quinn in an interview with the LA Times, also at CinemaCon:
"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. And she definitely does that with the squad. She's always picking someone to be dissecting and playing off and messing with."
But the ultimate reason that Robbie loves playing Harley Quinn so much might just be the pure fun of it, judging by what she told Cineplex:
"Harley is creepy, violent, crazy — all of the things that I aspire to be. No. It's the fun of living vicariously through someone who is doing things that I would never do in real life."
Although we've heard plenty about Jared Leto's Joker, it looks like Suicide Squad could have us all falling for Robbie's Harley Quinn.
