Ella Jay Basco, a Filipino-Korean who has grown up in America has said that she went through the auditioning process for five times for about a month before she was picked. She practiced martial arts, read comic books about her character to be able to act more effectively for the auditions, and of course, watch a bunch of superhero movies. The moment she was told by her agent that she had got the part, she had of course, jumped for joy. That joy had apparently heightened even more when she met Margot Robbie (Harley Quinn) and the rest of the A-list cast of Birds of Prey, the first movie Basco’s Batgirl would have her film debut. Basco had mentioned that it was thrilling to get to meet Margot and even noted how much fun she had on the set of the movie. She mentions that everyone was just laughing and having a good time.
Birds of Prey is an upcoming DC movie which will center on the badass superheroes of the DC universe, coming to theaters near us as sooner as we hope.
