In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Cuoco explained her decision to forgo the Boston accent that was initially planned for her Harley Quinn portrayal.

“They initially wanted me to do a strong Boston accent, but I told [the showrunners] ‘my voice is a little recognizable, and I think it’s gonna be silly if we pretend it’s anything other than Kaley playing this role,'” she said.

The actress, best known for her role as Penny on The Big Bang Theory, opted to use her natural speaking voice instead. “It’s a lot of me, and I’ve kinda turned it into my own thing,” Cuoco stated.

By using her regular voice for the foul-mouthed and unhinged Harley, Cuoco was able to put her own unique spin on the character. She differentiated her take from Margot Robbie’s live-action portrayal in films like Suicide Squad.

“There have been so many Harley Quinns…that I didn’t want her to sound like anybody else,” Cuoco explained. “The show is unique, it’s not Suicide Squad, it’s so different and obviously so insane, that we’re able to make it exactly what we wanted.”
