‘Evil Dead’ star Jessica Lucas cast a Tigress for ‘Gotham’ season 2

As details emerged surrounding the casting of James Frain as Theo Galavan, fans were asking who would play the other half of the evil duo, Tigress, during the second season of Gotham. TV Line broke the news that Jessica Lucas landed the role in the wake of wrapping up Graceland.

Gotham cast photoLucas will indeed play Tabitha Galavan: “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,” TV Line writes.

In addition to film credits for Evil Dead and Pompeii, Lucas has appeared on Cult, Friends With Benefits and Melrose Place.

Cory Michael Smith’s Edward Nygma will take a more central role as he heads down the path to becoming the Riddler. At the 2015 Fox Upfront event in New York City, the audience was promised both the Joker and Mr. Freeze will appear in season two. Morena Baccarin, who plays Dr. Leslie Thompkins, has been upped to series regular for season 2.

Nicholas D’Agosto will return as Harvey Dent, also a regular in season 2, so expect more hints at his Two-Face duality and hidden darkness.

Gotham returns Monday, Sept. 21, now leading into the new sci-fi drama Minority Report.
