Cara Delevingne stood naked in a forest for Suicide Squad before she’d been cast

Actress and production director said embracing full moon would help her feel like Enchantress

Cara Delevingne has revealed how standing naked in a forest helped get her into character as Enchantress for her new film Suicide Squad.

Delevingne revealed she hadn’t been cast as Enchantress before discussing with the film’s production director David Ayer the best way to approach playing the superhero.

The actress explained that she felt comfortable playing Enchantress’ alter-ego June Moon, but was less certain how to approach playing the superhero side.

Delevingne told Sci-Fi Now: “The Enchantress side was more about finding that part of myself studying addiction, desperation and that void. One of the first things David said was ‘Go to the forest, the country – hopefully under the full moon – naked and feel what that feels like.’ And I was ‘This is fucking awesome. OK, I’m going to do that.’”

Revealing she hadn’t been cast in the movie before accepting Ayer’s suggestion, Delevingne said: “I didn’t even have the part yet. That character was a lot more freeing, in a way.”

Suicide Squad opens in August. It co-stars Will Smith, Margot Robbie and Jai Courtney.

Following Suicide Squad, Delevingne will next be seen in Valerian And The City Of A Thousand Planets in 2017.
