Margot Robbie’s star is shining bright and her character in “Suicide Squad,” Harley Quinn, has reportedly generated more buzz than any other character in the film. However, the actress had her doubts and panicked at the idea that people may hate her acting in the film.

While the movie is set for an Aug. 5 debut, DC Comics fans, up to now, have praised Robbie for her role especially after her character video was released.

During an interview with Collider last year, she opened up on her role and how she panicked at thought of failure. For Robbie, portraying a comic book antihero that has a legacy behind her was daunting.

The Australian beauty was on everyone’s lips after she proved her skills in “The Wolf of Wall Street.” She was at her romantic best in “Focus” and with only a few days for “Suicide Squad” to hit the big screens, Robbie is consistently the standout in any and all trailers.

During the interview, the actress discussed her fears of accepting the role of such an iconic character, the extensive research she carried out, her intense personal rehearsal process and her difficulty in wearing heels on sets. But how did Robbie cope up with the initial stress of acting in the film?

“Fortunately, everything kinda moved at such a quick pace and I was working on some other projects at the time that I didn’t have as much time to think about it. Which I think was definitely a blessing in disguise. And since then, we’ve kind of been straight-training and stuff and it all just moved kind of quickly that we got here before we realized it,” she had told Collider.

However, there was a self-doubt involved and she had a whole lot of moments of panic.

“Definitely I’ve had a lot of moments of panic, where I’m like ‘Oh God, they’re gonna hate it.’ And there’s just so many people to please, and you can’t ever really make everyone happy,” Robbie said.

In order to overcome the panic, she had immersed herself in research and put herself in the role as much as possible. She hoped that people would love her if she put her best in the role and prepare as much as was physically possible for her.

There is tremendous buzz surrounding Robbie’s portrayal of Harley Quinn. Surely she must be doing something right.
