Cara Delevingne talks about SUICIDE SQUAD and her character of Enchantress on a recent interview with LATE NIGHT w/SETH MEYERS.
“The part I'm playing, I'm actually playing two different parts. The second act is just a dream. I'm playing opposites, a mousey kind of scientist and a crazy, feral witch, which is great. Both sides of my personality, which is nice.”
According to Delevingne in a previous interview, the audition process was quite, well, "intense" and she was ready to “beat people up” at the end of it. “I was like, ‘Honestly, if I go outside and punch people, you’ve got to come get me out of jail because I am so furious,” she says. “[David Ayer] sparked a f*cking fury in me.”
In the comics, Enchantress is a “powerful, but mentally unstable, witch who has fought as both a hero and a villain. Her true identity is the kind-hearted June Moone, although she becomes evil when possessed by the Enchantress entity” (via DC Comics Database).
David Ayer is directing SUICIDE SQUAD, which stars Jared Leto as The Joker, Will Smith as Deadshot and Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn. Also in the cast are Joel Kinnaman, Cara Delevingne, Viola David, Adam Beach, Ike Barinholtz, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje and Scott Eastwood. SUICIDE SQUAD hits theaters on AUGUST 5, 2016!
