4. Kaley Cuoco
When Kaley Cuoco was first cast in the role of Harley Quinn in DC Universe’s animated series, there was some skepticism among fans. However, Cuoco quickly put those concerns to bed by delivering what has become one of the greatest chapters in the character’s storied history.
Cuoco’s interpretation of Harley Quinn is a fresh take on the character. This Harley is one that has a sense of complexity and vulnerability that has rarely been seen in previous depictions of the character. Her performance captures both the playful and unpredictable nature of Harley, but also has shown viewers a deeper side of the character in exploring her emotional struggles.
One of the most impressive aspects of Cuoco’s performance is her ability to balance the character’s wild antics with her more serious moments. She brings depth to Harley’s internal struggles and makes her a sympathetic character that audiences can root for.
Cuoco has taken the character in a direction few ever saw coming, with the show fully embracing Harley’s romance with Poison Ivy and making the character more layered. Yes, this Harley still has a penchant for the dramatic, but she’s also a layered character with so much unexpected depth. And for that, we tip our hat to Cuoco and will be forever grateful for the Harley she’s gifted the world with.
