What would you do to score a role in DC’s upcoming film Suicide Squad? If you’re actress Cara Delevingne, who will play the role of Enchantress, activities might include getting naked and howling at the moon. Seriously.

In a recent interview with W Magazine, Delevingne revealed the absurdities of her “audition” process, starting with:

I met the director, David Ayer, at a hotel in London on a dark and stormy night. He didn’t tell me anything about the movie. Instead, he showed me pictures of these amazing, enlightened, powerful, but very evil women.

Afterwards, the actress claimed to have met Ayer at his home, reading lines from the play Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, which apparently unlocked an extreme level of anger:

Somehow, when we were doing the scene, I became livid. I hadn’t felt rage like that in years. And then I got the part!

Even after landing the role, however, Delevingne was asked to do unusual things by Ayer:

David [Ayer] asked me to go and try and find a forest and, if it was a full moon, get naked and walk through the woods with my feet in the mud, which I did. There wasn’t a full moon, but I howled like a wolf.

At least nobody can say she wasn’t committed to the role.

Suicide Squad will arrive in theaters August 5, 2016.
