2. Anya Taylor-Joy
It’s hard to imagine anyone other than Margot Robbie playing Harley Quinn, but if there was ever a contender for the role, it would have to be Anya Taylor-Joy. The young actress has proven time and time again that she is a force to be reckoned with, delivering powerful performances in films like Split, The Witch, and Emma.
One thing that sets Taylor-Joy apart from other actresses is her ability to play complex characters with ease. Her performances in The Queen’s Gambit and The Northman showcase her range as an actress, and her ability to fully embody a character. Harley Quinn is a character that requires nuance and depth, and Taylor-Joy would be able to deliver that in spades.
Taylor-Joy’s striking looks and unique features would also make her an ideal candidate for the role. With her piercing blue eyes and sharp cheekbones, she has an otherworldly quality that would work perfectly for a character like Harley. Plus, her versatility as an actress means that she would be able to bring something new and exciting to the role, while still staying true to the character’s essence.
Anya Taylor-Joy would be an inspired choice to play Harley Quinn. While it may just be a dream fan cast for now, it’s not hard to imagine how incredible she would be in the role. But No. 1 on this list is too perfect.
