Peyton List has joined Fox's Gotham as the third actor to portray Ivy Pepper, a.k.a. Poison Ivy.
The character was first portrayed by Clare Foley. Foley was replaced by Maggie Geha when the character was aged forward. List will now take on the role, for apparently similar reasons according to the show's producers.
“In the continuing evolution of Poison Ivy’s origin story, Ivy Pepper has been transformed once again taking another step toward becoming the Ivy we know from the comics,” read a statement released by Gotham's producers. “Dangerous. A live wire of crazy energy. She’ll set her sights on Gotham, intent on making the city her own green paradise.”
List is no stranger to superhero TV shows. She portrayed Lisa Snart, the Golden Glider, in a recurring role on CW's The Flash.
List's role on Gotham is described as recurring. It is unclear if she will make her debut as Poison Ivy in the currently airing fourth season, or if she'll debut sometime in the fifth season.
