“She has her husband’s soul in her sword and I got to talk to Maseo throughout the film and yes, of course that’s the in the film, but you’ll have to wait and see how much of the plays into the movie,” she added.

The actress, who will have her first major role in movie, said that she was lucky to have great stunt double and stunt coordinator who give her points on executing good stunts for “Suicide Squad.”

“I was able to do all of my own stunts except for one dive role, but all of my stunts” she said. “So, yeah, I got to run on top of a car, I did all of my sword work… It really made a difference when I knew everything from muscle memory and I didn’t have to think about it when the cameras were rolling.”

Apart from Fukuhara, “Suicide Squad” cast members also included Will Smith, Jared Leto, Margot Robbie, Joel Kinnaman, Viola Davis, and Jai Courtney.

Other cast also includes Jay Hernandez, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Ike Barinholtz, Scott Eastwood, and Cara Delevingne.
