Cara Delevingne appears as her Suicide Squad character Enchantress on the cover of the new issue of Empire.

Cara Delevingne Covers ‘Empire’

Delevingne shared her Empire cover on Instagram, captioning it, “Making my own rules #Enchantress ‎#SuicideSquad @empiremagazine @suicidesquadmovie.”

Inside the pages of Empire, Delevingne opens up a bit about her Suicide Squad character. “She’s an ancient sorceress,” said the model-turned-actress. “A feral being. She’s been trapped for so long and now she’s finally let out.”

As in the comics, Enchantress essentially possesses June Moone, who Delevingne also plays. “June is an adventure-seeker who’s always wanted some excitement,” said Delevingne, who reveals that June meets her fate while exploring a cave. “And she gets what she wished for, in a terrible way.”

How did Delevingne get into the mindset of the dark Enchantress? According to the Paper Towns star, listening to Nick Cave‘s “Red Right Hand” and metal band Megadeth helped, as did spending some extra time in steam rooms.

“I decided that her domain was a warm, steamy lair so I spent a lot of time in the hotel steam room,” said Delevingne. “Occasionally someone’s come in and I’ve just been on the floor in the corner, crawling around and doing creepy s–t.”

Delevingne is not the only Suicide Squad star to land a cover of Empire. Jared Leto as the Joker, Will Smith as Deadshot, and Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn also got their own covers of the movie magazine.

Suicide Squad is slated to hit theaters Aug. 6, 2016.
