Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn Heavily Inspired Ariana Greenblatt’s Portrayal Of Tiny Tina In ‘Borderlands’

Margot Robbie (Barbie, The Suicide Squad) has had many iconic roles across various franchises, and her portrayal of Harley Quinn particularly inspired Ariana Greenblatt’s portrayal of Tiny Tina in the upcoming live-action Borderlands film adaptation.

Greenblatt got to meet the actress in Barbie, where she plays Sasha, daughter of Mattel executive Gloria, recounting that telling Robbie about her inspiration for playing Tiny Tina helped her get cast. Unlike the game’s current voice actress of the teenage explosives expert, Ashly Bursch, she decided to “find a happy medium and a balance and some humanity with Tina,” the actress shared in an interview with IGN, “… I needed to find the middle ground and layers and arc to her because she doesn’t feel emotions like a normal kid would and she doesn’t have the same fears if she has any, which I don’t think she has.”

Borderlands gathers a group of misfits on a quest to find the CEO of the Atlas Corporation’s missing daughter, as outlaw Lilith recruits a team for the mission, but things soon go wrong fairly quickly. The film opens in theatres on 9 August 2024, so it won’t be too long before we see Greenblatt in action as Tiny Tina.

Borderlands stars Cate Blanchett as Lilith, Édgar Ramírez as the Atlas CEO, Jack Black as robot Claptrap, Kevin Hart as Roland, and Jamie Lee Curtis as Dr. Patricia Tannis.
