Bicondova reveals her surprise with the casting.

I didn’t know I was auditioning for a girl named Selina Kyle.  I thought I was auditioning for a girl named Lucy.  When I found out that I got the role of Selina Kyle, I completely freaked out.  I knew Selina Kyle was Catwoman.  I didn’t know the details, but Catwoman is pretty cool.”

Later she adds: “The description of [the character] was “street thief, pick pocket, orphan, tough when cornered,” so I just came up with a character based on that.  And then, I used my dance background to incorporate the catlike movements.  And I just did what I thought a pick pocket would do.  That’s pretty much it.”

Fans can get some confirmation that she does have some upcoming scenes with David Mazouz’s Bruce Wayne.

“We just recently started to get to work together.  I’m not going to say what episode we’re on, but I have been able to work with some of the cast members and it’s really awesome,” she tells Collider

“David is an amazing actor.  Ben [McKenzie] is an awesome leader.  I think of him as a set dad.  He looks over everyone and makes sure everyone is okay and sees whether they need anything.  It’s really awesome.  I feel like it’s a second family.  I’m really honored to be a part of this.”
