SciFi Now Magazine Scans and Interview

The cast of Birds of Prey was interviewed by SciFi Now Magazine in Los Angeles a few months ago when they were filming the upcoming DC film. During their visit, they spoke to Jurnee Smollett-Bell (Black Canary), Margot Robbie (Harley Quinn), and Rosie Perez (Renee Montoya) as well as Chris Messina. Here are some of the highlights from the interview when they spoke to Mary who plays Huntress. You can read the full interview by visiting the gallery and clicking the pics below:

Her version of the character is Helena Bertinelli, “the daughter of a very powerful mob boss who was murdered in front of her when she was a child along with the rest of her family. So she was raised from a very young age to be a deadly assassin. And as she grows up, she essentially has one mission, which is to avenge the deaths of her family and go after the people who played a part in their murders.”

Mary also revealed that the film takes places within 24 hours and there’s something each character wants or needs so it adds a sense of urgency for all of them as to why they’re going to collide and work together. Getting along with the cast was easy for Mary who found them all “fun and funny and reverent and easy to be around.”

Finally, Mary had to do a lot of stunt training, weapons training, and discussed how she felt wearing her Huntress costume, where multiple versions of it will be seen throughout the film thanks to flashbacks:

I’m in quite a few different iterations of that look, and it was just great because they were all outfits that I could move in very easily. I was never in high heels or something so tight I couldn’t kick or roll or move in properly, and it was all very realistic in terms of being tactical…I felt very cool and very empowered, and I just really absolutely loved it.
