Margot Robbie discusses Harley Quinn's accent in Suicide Squad

01.27.2015

With SUICIDE SQUAD comprised of a crew of very distinct characters and personalities, we as fans are left to wonder what version of each DC Comics villain will be featured on screen in David Ayer's film. Some, like The Joker and Amanda Waller, have recently been portrayed both in films and on DC's television series ARROW and THE FLASH but the film versions are set to be their own unique take on the parts. One character who has always been potrayed in the comics in a consistent manner has been Harley Quinn.

Superhero Hype caught up with actress Margot Robbie to ask what she will bring to the character of Harley Quinn, namely in regards to the character's accent. Robbie, an Australian, has already shown a range of accents in movies like THE WOLF OF WALL STREET and FOCUS, so what does she have in mind for Harleen Quinzel?

“None of those things have been set in stone at this point, but according to the comics, she’s from New York and I think Brooklyn, so there may be a slight… I couldn’t imagine it would be as strong as THE WOLF OF WALL STREET accent,” she said. “The lingo will be the difference between that and the other character I played in ‘Wolf’ but I don’t know yet. We haven’t spoken about it.”

As soon as Robbie's casting was announced, I immediately thought of her part in THE WOLF OF WALL STREET as perfectly trashy for Harley Quinn. I think a blend of that with a little more malice behind it and Robbie will be well on her way to locking down her part. Now, the question is whether the character will get an updated/more realistic wardrobe rather than pigtails and bustiers. I certainly hope not.

SUICIDE SQUAD also stars Will Smith, Jai Courtney, Jared Leto, Cara Delevinge, and Viola Davis. It hits theaters on August 5, 2016.

Once again.....

Harley IS NOT just a hot character. I'm glad Robbie is pretty and all, but every comic or animated film I've ever seen of the character had Harley as a complete badass AND crazy. I don't give a flying fuck about the accent or how she looks in a bustier.....I care if she can handle the action part of the character or if we're going to be stuck with flash cuts that make Bourne nauseous (or a Harley who is completely unable to take care of herself).

While we're at it, everyone seems to hate

While we're at it, everyone seems to hate Jai Courtney equally and Cara Delevingne has never acted before (well, she appeared in one B-movie that was rated as horrible and a complete box office bomb). But let's not worry about the actors or the plot.....Robbie looks good naked so the film will obviously be wonderful.....{/sarc}

I'm sure she'll think of something. She was awesome in The Wolf of Wall Street.

She needs to watch

Born Yesterday with William Holden and Judy Holiday - Judy Holiday's voice in that movie must be where Arleen Sorkin got the voice for the animated series. I can't hardly watch Born Yesterday without thinking of Harley Quinn.

Really? Would you care to name the last movie she was an action star in?

@Des1: No way this guy from Moonlighting could be an action star. Oh wait!

She's a up and coming actor. Just because she hasn't done action (like Gizmopedia was pointing out) doesn't mean she can't be good at it. There's a first time for everything.

You want to compare Bruce Willis' physical ability to carry a fist-fight to a former model-turned actress' ability to fight with martial arts and weapons? Seriously?

Come on....you're smarter than that....

I'm starting to like this casting more and more

Margot killed it in WOLF OF WALL STREET and it looks like she has some real talent. Looking forward to her take on Harley Quinn.

What is she talking about? Harley Quinn is supposed to go over-the-top with her accent. She does it as an act. Why would you take away such an important and entertaining character trait?

She hasn't even been directed by her director yet, so do calm down.

She as Harley and Leto as the Joker are the two things I'm looking forward to most in this film.
