How Ivy becomes ‘Poison Ivy’ on GOTHAM!


If you tuned into Gotham for the season premiere last night, you know that we saw Ivy again, but it was the same actress that had been playing Ivy since the show began. We reported earlier this summer that the character had been recast with the older actress Maggie Geha, so fans were a bit confused. Although we did see Ivy get touched by a metahuman with the ability to make people get old when they are touched. Today some new light has been shed on what we can expect with the age change of Ivy this season. Check out what the Gotham executive producer had to say on the topic below, and share your thoughts AFTER THE JUMP. Gotham airs Monday evenings at 7pm on Fox.

“We made the change for two reasons: The character Ivy in the comics, one of her greatest powers is the power of seduction,” Woodruff told The Hollywood Reporter. “Everyone was much more comfortable with that with an older actress as opposed to a teenager. We want to explore that classic, canonical power of Ivy. And we didn’t just make her older with that attack. When she’s changed and transformed, there’s a real character change as well. She’ll still have some of the same traits, but she’ll be much darker, more manipulative than the Ivy we’ve seen so far. There’s a more evil quality to her as well. It’s more than just physical.”
