In recent news, Morena Baccarin (Firefly, Homeland) has lined up her next small screen project. She will play Dr. Leslie Thompkins in Gotham, a character who has been a faithful ally of Batman’s over the years.
According to Deadline, this take on Thompkins is described as,“a gifted and dedicated physician who was a friend of Bruce Wayne’s parents, Thomas and Martha. She is determined to use her skills to aid Gotham’s most in need, which currently means working at the newly opened Arkham Asylum’s Home for the Criminally Insane. In addition to her medical skills, her coolness under pressure will serve her well as she finds herself drawn close to James Gordon and into more and more dangerous waters.”
It sounds like she will have a recurring role in season one and will return as a regular in season two if the show is renewed. This cast just keeps getting better and better! I think this Morena is a great add on to the Gotham cast! How do you feel about this latest casting addition
