Gotham’s writers have talked of turning Barbara Kean, Jim Gordon’s ex-fiancee and a former member of Jerome’s Maniax, into Harley Quinn.
Talking of such a possibility, Erin Richards, the actress who plays Barbara on Gotham, told CinemaBlend “there have been conversations”.
“I think something major would have to happen to Barbara for her to fully become Harley Quinn. Because Harley Quinn is kind of…she doesn’t, to me, have the motivation that Babs has,” the actress said.
“Harley Quinn seems to like destruction for destruction’s sake, and that’s wonderful, but I feel like Barbara has more of a plan. She’s a little bit more intellectual in her approach toward climbing the ladder and taking over the underworld. And I think if she was to then morph into Harley Quinn, there would have to be something that happened that sort of stripped away that kind of scheming side of her so that she would just become, I guess, unhinged in the world. That, to me, is what Harley Quinn represents. That madness and mayhem that comes along with The Joker, because obviously, they’re a team.”
Is this something you fans would like to see? Or has her moments of madness passed in season 2? Let us know your thoughts.
