‘The Big Bang Theory’ star Kaley Cuoco is all geared up to lend her voice in the iconic title role of Harley Quinn in DC universe’s upcoming adult animated series. Kaley said she loved the supervillain character in the animated series and will bring about a new spin to the character.
She said, “I’ve always loved animation. I did it years ago, and I haven’t been in the animation world in a while. (Harley Quinn) is so edgy, it’s obviously a very adult comedy, and with such a world-renowned character, it’s been a blast to record’’, Cuoco told Entertainment Weekly on the sidelines of the Titans world premiere event at New York Comic-Con.
Speaking about the animated series. Cuoco said that it begins with Harley breaking up with the Joker after he screws her over and decides to strike out on her own.
“Over the course of the first season, we’ll see her try to become the “best bada** supervillain that there is,” she said, adding the character will cross paths with Doctor Psycho, Batman, Lex Luthor, Wonder Woman, and of course, Poison Ivy.
“She just doesn’t want to be Joker’s girlfriend anymore. She wants to lead the pack, which I find very appropriate for this kind of day and age and vibe that we’re in.”
“...it’s such an iconic character, so with all of that respect and love toward the character, we’re trying to bring a new spin to it, and I think the fans that love this type of show are really going to enjoy it’’.
Currently, Kaley si busy with the final season of popular comedy sitcom 'The Big Bang Theory' season 12.
