The super-anticipated premiere for Fox’s Batman prequel series, ‘Gotham,’ is only five days away — and now HollywoodLife.com is EXCLUSIVELY debuting a clip from the first episode!
Gotham takes us to Gotham City, where we meet the young Detective James Gordon (played by Ben McKenzie), who hopes to protect the city from evil. By his side is Barbara Kean (played by Erin Richards), his fiancee. Meet Barbara and WATCH an exclusive sneak peek below!
‘Gotham’: Meet James Gordon’s Mysterious Fiancee, Barbara Kean
Fox’s fall series Gotham premieres on Sept. 22 — and today we get to EXCLUSIVELY share a special sneak peek featuring scenes from the first episode AND behind-the-scenes interviews with the cast.
In the clip, we meet Barbara Kean, played by gorgeous actress Erin Richards. We learn that Barbara is James’ fiancee, has a wealthy father and is very good at hiding her emotions. From this clip, it appears that Barbara and James’ relationship isn’t as perfect as it seems.
The first look also features behind-the-scenes interviews with both Erin and Ben. Erin is British, and it’s totally fun to see her talk in a British accent during interviews, then seamlessly transition into an American accent for the show. We also get to hear Erin spill if she had a crush on Ben during his OC days (I mean, who didn’t?).
‘Gotham’: Catwoman, The Penguin & More Take Over Prequel
There are a lot of villains in Gotham City — and Detective Gordon wants to stop them! In a clip we previously shared, Det. Gordon asks:
“Looking into the eyes of a criminal, you have to ask, how will a little girl, a low level thug, a businesswoman become the most dangerous villains around?” And says, “Simple answer: they all got their start in this city. And it’s up to us to stop them.”
