14 Stars Who Almost Snatched the Role of Harley Quinn in the Suicide Squad Film
Although the casting of the on-screen version of Enchantress made many Suicide Squad fans lose sleep, no character needed the perfect real-life depiction more than Harley Quinn. According to Wikipedia, the DC Comics star “is the Joker’s frequent accomplice and lover, and is also an ally to the supervillain Poison Ivy, from whom she gained an immunity to poisons and toxins.” Basically… HQ is a total badass who needed an equally kick-butt actress to portray her.
While fans of the comic series aren’t too thrilled with her costuming in the upcoming movie, they’re pretty pleased with the decision to cast Margot Robbie as the fan favorite. But before the Wolf of Wall Street star landed the role as the “funny, crazy, scary” girl, many other young actresses were considered for the part… some would’ve made total sense, and others would require you to think outside the box a little bit. Check out all the celebs who almost played Harley in the upcoming SS film below!
Emma is currently known as the face of Scream Queens, but if she had accepted the role of Harley Quinn when it was offered to her, that never would've happened. Yep — the 25-year-old auditioned and got the part, but she decided to turn it down for the Fox TV hit.
