Clare Foley (Sinister, Southpaw) will no longer be playing the younger version of Poison Ivy when the third season of Gotham rolls around. A new report indicates that the Gotham crew are looking to re-cast an older actress in the role of Ivy Pepper.
The source states:
“Casting is underway for an actress in her late teens to assume the now-series regular role of the would-be eco-terrorist.”
As the source indicates, it sounds like Ivy will be playing a much bigger role in the third season. Foley’s Pepper was a recurring character by contrast.
Foley also played a young Piper in Orange Is the New Black.
The third season of Gotham will begin airing later this year.
Thoughts on this report? What is your opinion on the role of Ivy Pepper getting re-cast in Gotham?
