She went on to compare herself to the character:
“In the research I did for the pre-production, I learned a lot about Barbara who connects me to her. I identify with her a lot because this is only my second job as an actress and I feel like I’m on a journey to prove to myself what barriers I can break, what limits I can push and I I am delighted to embody all of this the anxiety, stubbornness and determination that are Barbara’s character.
Finally, she commented on her reaction upon finding out that she had been chosen.
“Oh man! It was a shock, it was very crazy. I took the tests and it was mind-blowing, but deep down you never expect it. I found out through Zoom, because the people in charge made a surprise and everything. I thought I would do one more test and it’s always mind-blowing to think about it. They made me read an email and it said, “I’m Batgirl.” I just continued to shake without understanding what was going on. It was wonderful and this role will be a blessing in my career.
