Leslie Thompkins. In the meantime, Robin Lord Taylor's Cobblepot is seen continuing his action of building an army of his. The synopsis doesn't reveal any further detail, but it seems like the New Year will present a red-hot kick-off to Gotham!
Why Morena's Addition To Gotham Is Great?
There are some very significant reasons why the addition of Morena Baccarin is going to add thrill to a great extent to the Fox series. Let's proceed towards those without wasting any time!
First of all, the character of Dr. Leslie Thompkins is important in the development of the series as she's a friend of Bruce Wayne's late parents Thomas and Martha Wayne.
She's going to be the one helping out Gordon in his most vulnerable state as described by the executive producer Danny Cannon to "˜TV Line'. It is tough for Gordon to work alone in controlling Arkham, Leslie's support will strengthen him to a great extent.
The second reason is that Morena's Leslie is going to ensure that some romantic winds are blowing in the series! Gordon cast Ben McKenzie stated recently to "˜Daily Beast' that Morena is going to play his "˜love interest'.
The third reason stands that Dr. Leslie Thompkins is a comic book character that has never been presented in any of the television or movie adaptations yet. So, her introduction in Gotham is going to add extra bit of excitement to the comic book fans. As Morena Baccarin isn't a newbie in the comic book genre, she might do an outstanding job to promote her character in an epic way.
