Lady Gaga On Her Role In Joker: Folie à Deux- “I’ve Never Done Anything Like This Before”

The American singer-actress stars in Joker: Folie à Deux opposite Oscar winning star Joaquin Phoenix, which is set to release on October 7th.

At last, Lady Gaga is speaking about Joker: Folie à Deux, the much awaited movie in which she plays Harley Quinn. The singer-actor claimed that she is playing Harley Quinn in a very different way from the comic books in a recent interview to promote her movie, Gaga Chromatica Ball.

“You know my version of Harley is mine, and it’s very authentic to this movie and these characters. I’ve never done anything like this before, so it is all going to be completely brand new and really fun,” the American star told a publication.

Margot Robbie, who portrayed Harley Quinn in the films Suicide Squad (2016) and Birds of Prey (2020), will be replaced by Gaga in this role. Robbie said she was excited to see a different actor portray the well-known comic book character on screen around two years ago.

“It makes me so happy because I said from the very beginning, all I want is for Harley Quinn to be one of those characters, the way like Macbeth or Batman always gets passed from great actor to great actor. It’s such an honour to have built a foundation strong enough that Harley can now be one of those characters that other actors get to have a go at playing. I think she’ll do something incredible with it,” Margot revealed in an interview in 2022.

Lady Gaga features in ‘Joker: Folie à Deux’ alongside Oscar winning actor Joaquin Phoenix. The sequel to the blockbuster ‘Joker’ (2019) is directed by Todd Philips & is all set to hit theatres on 7th October, 2024. The highly anticipated movie also stars Catherine Keener, Brendan Gleeson, and Zazie Beetz.
