There are a lot of characters to be excited about "Suicide Squad" such as Will Smith's Deadshot and Jared Leto's version of The Joker. But the character that has really caught the eye and attention of most people who have seen the trailers is none other than Harley Quinn, played by "The Wolf of Wall Street" star Margot Robbie.

"I'm eating burgers at lunchtime, and then you go do a scene where you're hosed down and soaking wet in a white T-shirt, it's so clingy and you're self-conscious about it," Margot Robbie told the New York Times about Harley Quinn's scene in "Suicide Squad." "I didn't think denim overalls would be appropriate for that character"
Margot Robbie says that she agreed to wear skimpy clothes in "Suicide Squad" because it matches the iconography of her Harley Quinn character. The Australian actress also noted that Harley Quinn wears her daring costume not to seduce anybody but because her clothes are "sparkly and fun."

"Suicide Squad" director David Ayer told the New York Times that Margot Robbie is an analytical and serious woman in real life, which is the opposite of Harley Quinn's personality in "Suicide Squad." However, the director also described the actress as someone who has the ability to open herself up and change gears once she starts feeling comfortable.
The DC Comics movie "Suicide Squad," starring Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, will be released this year on Aug. 5. She will also appear in the highly-anticipated blockbuster "The Legend of Tarzan" on July 1, according to Earn the Necklace.
