In an interview with TVLine, Cuoco opened up about the challenges of bringing Quinn’s over-the-top personality to life solely through voice work. “After a few weeks, it became more manic and hysterical, so I wanted to go back and re-record [the earlier episodes] to make sure it was just as badass from the beginning.”

She admits it took some time to fully inhabit the character. “I think with any [new] character…it takes some getting used to. I’ve perfected certain looks and facial expressions over the years, so this in a way was harder.”

For the Big Bang Theory star, voicing such an iconic comic book character carried extra pressure to get it right. “I’m voicing someone as iconic as Harley [Quinn],” she explained.

However, Cuoco made the conscious decision not to put on an accent or affectation for the role. “My voice is very recognizable, so I didn’t want to force an accent or try to be someone I’m not. I’m ‘Kaley as Harley,’ and accepting that early on enabled me to me free and very authentic.”

By leaning into her own natural voice and persona, Cuoco was able to find a truly unique way to portray the unhinged former psychiatrist that still felt distinctly comic-accurate.
