“When I heard about it I was very happy, because from the beginning my goal was transform Harley Quinn into one of those immortal characters world culture, as is Batman but as is also, I don’t know, Macbeth, for example. Roles that are passed on from generation to generation, from great actor to great actor. Anyone can play their Batman or their Macbeth, no? Even Queen Elizabeth, it comes to my mind now, is a role that has been played by so many different actresses. It’s an honor for me to have built a solid enough foundation that can make Harley something lasting, one of those characters that other actors can try to play. And I am convinced that Lady Gaga will do something incredible“.
