Homeland actress Morena Baccarin has been cast as Dr. Leslie Thompkins in Fox's Gotham. She will be a recurring character this season and is slated to become a regular in Season 2.
Dr. Leslie Thompkins is described as a gifted and dedicated physician who was a friend of Bruce Wayne’s parents, Thomas and Martha. She is determined to use her skills to aid Gotham’s most in need, which currently means working at the newly opened Arkham Asylum’s Home for the Criminally Insane. In addition to her medical skills, her coolness under pressure will serve her well as she finds herself drawn close to James Gordon and into more and more dangerous waters.
Morena Baccarin is known for her role in the short-lived, but much loved Firefly. Interestingly, this will not be her first role within the DC Universe, as she also voiced Talia al Ghul in the 2014 DC Animated Original Movie Son of Batman.
