Good news for Gotham fans! A Firefly alum has returned to DC, but this time in a live action TV series! Morena Baccarin, who played the beautiful Companion, Inarra Serra, on the highly underrated and uber cult fave show, will now be playing doctor in the Batman-based crime drama.
She will play Dr. Leslie Thompkins, 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.
Of course, Firefly wasn’t the only popular show she’s been on. She was on the alien series remake V, and most recently on Showtime’s Emmy-winning show, Homeland. Her previous relationship with DC was as a voice actor for a few of its animated shows.
