In order to discuss their most recent movie, Amsterdam, Robbie, Rami Malek, and John David Washington sat down with Josh Horowitz of MTV News.
The topic of conversation then shifted to the much-anticipated breaking news: what does she think of Gaga playing Quinn?
“It makes me so happy because I said from the very beginning, all I want is for Harley Quinn to be one of those characters, the way like Macbeth or Batman always gets passed from great actor to great actor,” the Aussie actor said to MTV.
“It’s such an honour to have built a foundation strong enough that Harley can now be one of those characters that other actors get to have a go at playing.”
Then Robbie could laud Gaga. Moreover, she expressed her confidence in playing Quinn.
“I think she’ll do something incredible with it,” she said.
It was not unexpected that Robbie was not cast in the role of the queen-pin, a criminal, as she stated to the magazine that she needed to take a break from playing Quinn by the year 2021.
“It was kind of back-to-back filming Birds… and filming [ Suicide Squad], so I was kind of like, oof, I need a break from Harley because she’s exhausting,” Robbie revealed to the magazine.
The fact that Gaga will portray the insane Quinn has not yet been made official. The fact that Harley Quinn is one of the love interests the Joker has in DC Comics, however, makes it safe to assume that Gaga will portray her.
Quinn and the Joker first cross paths in Arkham Asylum, where Harley works as Quinn’s therapist, according to the comic book plot.
