Things We Saw Today: Daniela Melchior Weighs in on Ratcatcher 2’s Future

Plus Elijah Wood, Emma Stone, and more!

It’s nearly impossible to stand out among the wildly talented cast of The Suicide Squad. I mean, you’re competing with superstars Margot Robbie, Idris Elba, and John Cena, not to mention sentient weasels and shark royalty. So it was surprising to say the least that Daniela Melchior’s Cleo Cazo aka Ratcatcher 2 emerged as the stealthy soul of James Gunn’s violent magnum opus.

Melchior appeared on Collider Ladies Night to discuss the future of her character, saying “I would say that she’s making friends for the first time. After her father dies and she’s alone with Sebastian and the rest of the rats, she’s always in a defensive approach to her life. She’s always alone, fighting for her survival and she doesn’t see friends anywhere.”

She continued, “She’s always afraid that somebody will do something to hurt her, so she’s always with this small circle that it’s just her and her rats and Sebastian. And in the end of this adventure, I really feel like for the first time after losing her parents, she has a family. So I’m really curious what’s going to happen next. Maybe they will turn her into a super-villain. I don’t know!”

In the interview, Melchior also revealed that, like her character, she loves naps and can fall asleep almost anywhere. She even posted some Instagram videos of her co-workers goofing on her while she’s asleep.

If you still haven’t watched The Suicide Squad, it’s in theaters now and streaming on HBO Max.
