We reported last week that in Season 3 of Gotham we’d be seeing a new Poison Ivy and ideed, we now have the new actress.
In season one and two of the show Ivy – or Ivy ‘Pamela’ Pepper here for some weird reason – was played by young actress Clare Foley who has now been replaced by a much more, em, grown up looking Maggie Geha.
Geha starred in Ted 2.
It’s interesting to see this new casting, especially the age difference between 14-year-old Foley and 19-year-old Geha.
We speculated a while back that Gotham could take a jump forward between seasons to get to the point where we’re closer to Bruce becoming Batman… could that be what we’re seeing here?
Or maybe we’re reading too much into it.
What we do know is that with Indian Hills’ worst villains – including, curiously, a Bruce Wayne lookalike – on the streets of Gotham, season three could take the massively improved show to unforeseen heights.
We’ll all find out later this year.
