Gotham Season 2 Casts Jessica Lucas as the Bullwhip-Cracking Tigress

Gotham Season 2 Tigress

Fox’s Gotham is ready to unleash its Tigress.

Jessica Lucas, who recently wrapped a run on Fox’s Gracepoint, has landed the Season 2 role of Tabitha Galavan aka Tigress, TVLine has learned exclusively.

On the DC Comics-based drama, Tabitha is the lead enforcer for her brother Theo, a billionaire industrialist hell-bent on taking over Gotham (and to be played by go-to bad guy James Frain). Described as sexy and violent — and toting a bullwhip! — she’s the opposite of her cold and calculating brother, deriving a sensual pleasure from the mayhem she’s tasked with making.

Lucas’ other TV credits include The CW’s Melrose Place, 90210 and Cult, Friends With Benefits, CSI and the Canadian series Edgemont.

As denoted on TVLine’s bakery-fresh Fall TV Premieres Calendar, Gotham returns Monday, Sept. 21, now leading into the new sci-fi drama Minority Report.
