Gotham Casts Grad Ivana Milicevic as Selina Kyle’s Mother


While Selina Kyle as been a staple of Fox’s Gotham since the show’s first episode three seasons ago, the character has yet to have a significant arc of her own. Given the fact that Selina Kyle/Catwoman is such an integral part of the post-teenage Batman mythos, it seems that the Gotham show runners recognize that they can’t merely toss the character around and that a story arch – which will likely lead to interesting character development – is much needed.  That said, The Hollywood Reporter is now reporting that Banshee actor Grad Ivana Milicevic to play Selina Kyle’s mother, whom they’ve described as follows:

 Milicevic will have a recurring role and play Maria Kyle, Selina’s (Camren Bicondova) long-lost mother. The character is described as s a tough-as-nails operator with an arsenal of street smarts and a world-class drifter who is able to hide her true self behind a variety of personas. Maria is a criminal through and through, and is willing to use anything and anyone to get what she wants. Her one weakness is Selina, the daughter she abandoned and the only person in the world she truly loves. – The Hollywood Reporter
