The Best Actresses Who Played Harley Quinn

Updated July 1, 2020 2.9k votes 541 voters 16.1k views12 items

Don’t let her good looks fool you - Harley Quinn is as fierce as they come. You can see this in Suicide Squad, with Harley Quinn played by Margot Robbie. She is one of the best Harley Quinn actresses, and has helped make the character one of the most popular in the entire DC universe.

Robbie faced criticism of her portrayal, with some saying the film Harley Quinn version was overly sexualized and too dependent on villain The Joker. However, others have called her the best Harley Quinn actress.

First appearing in an episode of Batman: The Animated Series back in 1992, Harley Quinn has grown in popularity over the years. Along with Poison Ivy and Catwoman, Harley Quinn is part of a trio known as the Gotham City Sirens. Their misadventures will be depicted in the upcoming movie of the same title, once again with Robbie, who plays Harley Quinn.

Harley Quinn’s had a handful of different looks over the years. One of the best Harley Quinn voice actors is Arleen Sorkin. Sorkin, who played Harley Quinn in Batman: The Animated Series and Batman Beyond, kept the character classic.

Laura Bailey, the actress who plays Harley Quinn in Lego Batman, put her own spin on the character. However, regardless of the actress who plays Harley Quinn, the character is always depicted as strong, independent (and often insane). 

Other actors who played Harley Quinn include Hynden Walch, Tara Strong, and Jenny Slate in 2017's The Lego Batman Movie. Which version do you like the most?
