HHB Media Caught up with actress Corina Calderon who gave a few tid bits about her experience working on Suicide Squad with director David Ayer. While she couldn’t reveal too much about her character, she did reveal that the character’s name is “Grace” (Speculate away!). Grace could be an original character created solely for the film, but in time we will see if she end up being someone from the DC Comics lore.
Corina further discussed her on set experience watching Jared Leto play iconic Batman villian, The Joker and calls his performance “brilliant” and that she was amazed by it. She elaborates saying
“I was amazed, just fascinated, just memorized watching him. Even when he was going to get his mic checked, in between scenes or setting up another scene, watching him, really gave me this freedom. A whole new freedom as an actress, and I just felt brave, watching him go and just…it was an amazing lesson.”
