In anticipation of David Ayer’s Suicide Squad digital HD release, WB has released a new featurette which spotlights the relationship between fan favorites Harley Quinn and the Joker. The clip also features the actors, Jared Leto and Margot Robbie, and how they worked to bring the scenes between the pair to life.
According to Robbie, the key behind the success of their dynamic was the unpredictability. Leto and Robbie approached their scenes fresh, every take, without any rehearsal. According to Robbie:
“The Harley/Joker stuff was so unpredictable. Like, the Squad stuff, we had done so much rehearsal, and we needed to because it bonded us in a way none of us ever expected would happen, obviously. But the Joker stuff, Jared and I really didn’t do any rehearsal off-screen — and it was perfect because then we would get in front of the camera, and I didn’t know what was going to happen and he didn’t know what was going to happen. I don’t think anyone really knew what was going to happen, and that’s why I think those scenes were so electric is that they were so unpredictable.”
Check out the featurette, below:
Leto gives a lot of the credit to his partner, Robbie:
“I was lucky in that I had a pretty phenomenal partner in this. I was really lucky to work with her. Incredibly kind, incredibly patient, which you have to be with the Joker in the room.”
Even if you didn’t enjoy Suicide Squad (which I have no idea why that would be, but I’ve heard some people mention it) you have to at least admit Harley and Joker were great together. Now, if only WB would have left in all of their screentime, they could have been even more memorable.
