LOS ANGELES, July 4 (UPI) -- Australian actress Margot Robbie has starring roles in two high-profile 2016 films -- The Legend of Tarzan and Suicide Squad -- but she said the women she plays in them are nothing alike.

Tarzan is a 19th century-set adventure story, while Suicide Squad is a contemporary, anti-hero ensemble movie.

"They're kind of like on total different ends of the spectrum, so it was kind of fun to go from one character to the other," Robbie said during a recent Los Angeles press conference.

"I really can't find any similarities between Harley and Jane at all, but it was kind of interesting to play Jane, who is so composed in the face of danger and very strong-willed and strong-spirited and emotionally strong and then to play Harley, that's a bit more of a basket case in those ways. It does end up affecting you because you do start asking yourself... You're asking questions like: 'What would my character do? What does my character think?' And then, ultimately, you are asking yourselves those things, as well."
