With the lovely Cara Delevingne playing Enchantress in David Ayer’s Suicide Squad, it looks like she’s pulling no punches when it comes to preparation for the role.
Enchantress in the DC Comics has two very distinct personalities – the kind June Moone and the evil Enchantress who commands dark magic and, if rumours are to be believed, is a weapon sought by Lex Luthor.
According to The Daily Star (yes, we know): “Cara’s character has a split personality so the role is a real challenge for her. She’s dedicated to doing her research for the movie and has been seeing her psychotherapist every day. Her character is very dark so she has a lot to learn about the way to act. To her, it’s hilarious because in real life she’s really cheery and laid-back, so she is struggling with the idea of playing a character so opposite.”
There’s no doubt playing a character like Enchantress could be real challenge for an actress, so we certainly wouldn’t rule this out.
