How Cara Delevigne Prepared For Suicide Squad


Suicide Squad’s Cara Delevigne howled like a wolf, among other things, to prepare for her Suicide Squad role

In a movie full of crazy psychopaths, Suicide Squad’s Enchantress might actually be the craziest of them all. Because she’s actually a split personality. There’s June Moon, the normal person, and then Enchantress, and evil presence that inhabits her body and gives her powers, but can go psychotic and super evil if June doesn’t keep Enchantress in check. How did Cara Delevigne approach such a role? Well let’s the say the audition and preparation process was a little unusual:

"I met the director, David Ayer, at a hotel in London on a dark and stormy night. He didn’t tell me anything about the movie. Instead, he showed me pictures of these amazing, enlightened, powerful, but very evil women. He spoke to me about addiction and mental illness, which are things I find very, very interesting. The next time I met David was at his house in L.A. He asked me to read a scene from ‘Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?’ I love that play and had acted in it at school when I was 17, so I was excited. Somehow, when we were doing the scene, I became livid. I hadn’t felt rage like that in years. And then I got the part!There still wasn’t a script, but David asked me to go and try and find a forest and, if it was a full moon, get naked and walk through the woods with my feet in the mud, which I did. There wasn’t a full moon, but I howled like a wolf. It would have been really funny if someone had seen me."

Sounds like Jared Leto wasn’t the only one comitted to doing weird things to prepare for a part in the movie. Enchantress is definitely one of the lesser known characters in he DC universe so it would be great if Cara Delevigne can make the role into something memorable (especially if she turns out to be the villain of the film, which seems likely). Suicide Squad opens August 5th in theaters.
