As filming on the Suicide Squad live action film advances, attention is focused primarily on Margot Robbie with Ms. Robbie’s Harley Quinn character proving to be an early favorite among Suicide Squad fans.
Earlier this week, Margot was captured on film, as she performed some tricky stunts with the aid of her stunt double. Witnesses on the Suicide Squad set reported seeing sparks flying from the motorcycle, as Margot rode with a safety harness attached and a stunt double close by for support. The gallery below shows Ms. Robbie mastering a motorcycle stunt that implies fans will see Margot’s Suicide Squad character engaging in a wild motorcycle chase, when the film is finally released.
Margot was dressed in a denim blouse with matching skintight pants for the scene. Additionally, Ms. Robbie wore her character’s thick-framed eyeglasses with her blonde hair worn free to fly wildly during that motorcycle ride.
Margot Robbie was again on set to participate in filming another action sequence, which involved a high-speed car chase between Batman (Ben Affleck) and The Joker (Jared Leto). Margot’s Harley Quinn joined Jared Leto’s Suicide Squad character in the royal purple Infiniti G35 for the scene. Batman, played by Ben Affleck’s stunt double for this scene, jumps atop the Infiniti, tries to tear a hole in the roof of the car and apprehend The Joker. For this Suicide Squad scene, The Joker was also played by a stunt double, leaving Ms. Robbie alone as the only actor in the scene. As The Joker races through the empty streets in an attempt to shake Batman off of his roof, he laughs maniacally.
Most fans will have to wait for the Suicide Squad release next August to see Ms. Robbie in live action, but Margot’s dedication and hard work can clearly be seen in her willingness to perform many of her own stunts. Toronto locals report that Ms. Robbie’s hard work doesn’t end when the Suicide Squad cameras stop rolling. Margot has been seen going to a local gym, keeping her workouts a part of her regular routine. Robbie showed up ready to sweat, dressed in a purple tank top and black leggings with her long hair tied up in a bun.
Ms. Robbie keeps her physique in top condition, as fans of the Leonardo DiCaprio film, The Wolf of Wall Street, can attest. Additionally, Margot Robbie has starred alongside her Suicide Squad co-star Will Smith in Focus, as well as appearing in the romantic drama About Time, which also starred Domhnall Gleeson, Rachel McAdams, and Bill Nighy.
