WhileÂ Suicide SquadÂ is filled with CG, many moments are not, includingÂ Margot Robbieâ€™s underwater fight. The Harley Quinn actress told Jimmy Fallon onÂ The Tonight ShowÂ she learnedÂ to hold her breathÂ for five minutes, even though the scene required she do so only for one.
â€œI worked with this amazing free-diver, and he came in and I did four sessions with him. His nameâ€™s Kirk,â€ she said, adding that she called him Captain Kirk. â€œItâ€™s all about lowering your metabolic rateâ€¦You kinda, like, meditate underwater. Itâ€™s what free-divers do, but itâ€™s amazing.â€
Admitting to her competitive nature, Robbie described how she would try and hold her breath longer than her stunt double. â€œI got to five minutes and I was like, â€˜You know what? This is above and beyond what I thought Iâ€™d get to. Iâ€™m good, Iâ€™m good with five.â€™â€ She says she tried pushing it even further when her double got to five-and-a-half minutes, but she was advised against it.
