Think a forest, nakedness and some howling.

Always one to do things a little out of the box, model/actress Cara Delevingne revealed her unique process in finding her character, Enchantress, for the upcoming DC Comics film Suicide Squad.

In an interview with W magazine, Delevinge explained, “I met the director, David Ayer, at a hotel in London on a dark and stormy night. He didn’t tell me anything about the movie. Instead, he showed me pictures of these amazing, enlightened, powerful, but very evil women. He spoke to me about addiction and mental illness, which are things I find very, very interesting.” Um, okay, we get that.


Delevingne said the next time she met with Ayer he had her read a scene from Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? which got her all riled up. “Somehow, when we were doing the scene, I became livid. I hadn’t felt rage like that in years. And then I got the part!”

Then, the kicker. “There still wasn’t a script,” said Cara, “but David asked me to go and try and find a forest and, if it was a full moon, get naked and walk through the woods with my feet in the mud, which I did. There wasn’t a full moon, but I howled like a wolf. It would have been really funny if someone had seen me.”

In the DC Comic Universe, Enchantress aka June Moone gains her magical powers after an encounter at an old castle and when she joins the Suicide Squad, she has not yet mastered control over her impulses and immense power, making her pretty dangerous. We can totally see Delevingne kicking ass in this.

Here’s the latest trailer… Suicide Squad takes charge in theaters August 5.
