Lili Simmons has been cast as the adult Selina Kyle/Catwoman for next week's Gotham finale. The news was announced by the teenage Selina Kyle actor Camren Bicondova, as part of a "goodbye" letter to fans. Bicondova decided not to play Selina after the show jumps forward 10 years for the finale.
"The woman who will be playing the older Selina Kyle is the glorious Lili Simmons, who, when I met her for the first time, made me cry tears of joy," Bicondova wrote. "She is perfect for this role, and she really wanted to do Selina right. We spoke about Selina Kyle for hours; I shared journal entries and scenes that were prime examples of Selina's characteristics, and she shared thoughts of backstory for the 10 years that the audience doesn't see."
Simmons recently appeared on USA's The Purge, and previously appeared on HBO's Westworld and True Detective.
Gotham's series finale is scheduled to air April 25 on Fox.
