Gotham has continuously proved its critics wrong through its three seasons to-date, with the DC origins story bringing brand new faces into some of the most famous character positions in the comic book world. One of those faces is Selina Kyle, future Catwoman, played by Camren Bicondova.

Speaking to CinemaBlend, the actress talked a little about her transformation into the legendary villain Catwoman, and said: “Especially after this next episode airs, Episode 13; I think she’s actually going to believe in herself and she’s actually going to believe that she’s a strong independent person. I think she’s always said that to make herself feel better and make it easier for her to live and survive, but after instances that are going to be occurring in her life soon, I think they’re actually going to force her to actually believe that she is this strong independent young lady instead of just telling herself that. I think that’s one step she’s going to be taking to becoming Catwoman.”

She added: “Catwoman actually believes everything she says and thinks, whereas Selina over the past two seasons has been kind of saying things to make herself feel better, so that would be the one thing that she’s going to be changing.”

A recent inclusion of Selina’s birth-mother in the comic book TV series does show that those behind Gotham are impressed with Bicondova’s performance and will continue to delve deeper into the character’s backstory and psyche. This can only be good news for those who are big fans of the iconic villain.

Gotham continues Mondays in the US on FOX and is expected to return to Channel 5 in the UK later this year.
