We only have a couple more months to wait now, until we get to see the eagerly anticipated Warner Bros. and DC movie Suicide Squad, which boasts a very strong and exciting cast, full of many of our fans favourite characters. One such star is the beautiful British actress Cara Delevingne, who takes on the role of Enchantress in the upcoming Suicide Squad movie.
Many people were quite surprised to see Cara Delevingne landing such an interesting role, considering she is better known for her modelling work that her acting talent. Now, Cara has opened up about her audition for the role of Enchantress in Suicide Squad, revealing just how unique the whole thing was.
Delevingne explained, "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?’"
She added, "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."
Certainly sounds like a very interesting and different way of auditioning for a role to us, but it clearly worked in her favour. We cannot wait to see what Cara Delevingne brings to the role, when Suicide Squad hits the big screen on August 5 in both the US and the UK.
