Cara Delevingne felt like she was losing her "f***ing mind" while making 'Suicide Squad'.

The 23-year-old actress, who stars as Enchantress in the much-anticipated new comic book movie, has revealed she fantasised about killing people in "demonic" moments during filming.

She explained: "I tried to imagine the darkest s**t for a long time, like seeing people crumble and their skin melt in front of me or making people implode and trying to use my imagination in dark ways.

"I remember seeing a guy behind a bar cutting up a cucumber then seeing him cut all the way up his hand and I thought, 'I'm losing my f***ing mind!

"Is this going to stick? Am I going to have to be sent in and locked away?

"I don't like being by myself anyway but it was more scary when I was acting out the role. I didn't like going home and being alone with these thoughts.

"When I was in the outfit, I was far more demonic than I'm shown on screen, my character definitely felt evil and living in that was very emotional.

"I studied addiction, desperation, that void. It was draining, desperate, exhilarating and maddening."

Asked whether she could ever be as evil as her on-screen character, Cara told The Sun on Sunday newspaper: "I'd rob a bank if I could get away with it. I would kill."

Meanwhile, Cara revealed she took inspiration for the film from her own childhood, when she was obsessed with witchcraft.

She explained: "I've always been a big fan of witches so I knew a bit about that in the magic sense of it. I thought of her as a demon.

"It was more about finding the evil in myself and finding the demon and the darkest parts of myself, why people do things and want to destroy the world and, most of all, have no heart. Or if they did, why did they lose it all? What happened to them?"
