Jessica Lucas cast as Tigress for GOTHAM
We recently posted about James Frain (Orphan Black) being cast as Theo Galavan in NBC’s Gotham. And now we know that Jessica Lucas (Gracepoint) has been cast as his sister, Tabitha Galavan. Both characters will play villains in the series’ second season, especially Tabitha, who’s better known as Tigress.
On the DC Comics-based drama, Tabitha is the lead enforcer for her brother Theo, a billionaire industrialist hell-bent on taking over Gotham (and to be played by go-to bad guy James Frain). Described as sexy and violent — and toting a bullwhip! — she’s the opposite of her cold and calculating brother, deriving a sensual pleasure from the mayhem she’s tasked with making.
Considering this is all before Bruce Wayne truly starts to bring his Batman identity into the mix, no word on whether Lucas will be sporting that stripey leotard anytime soon.
Aside from Gracepoint, Lucas was in Pompeii with Game of Thrones’ Kit Harington, The CW’s Cult, and the 2013 gorier remake Evil Dead.
