Veronica Cartwright has been cast in the upcoming CW series Gotham Knights. Her guest-starring role is the character Eunice Harmon, who will appear in episodes 4 and 7 of season 1.
As is described in her character description, Eunice Harmon seems like a sweet old lady who is living out her golden years in a nursing home. However, she has a much darker side with menacing secrets and ties to an evil that has loomed over Gotham for over a hundred years.
Producers Natalie Abrams, Chad Fiveash, and James Stoteraux said in a statement (via Deadline): “We are absolutely thrilled to have Veronica as a part of Gotham Knights. A veteran of some of the most frightening movies ever made — Alien, 1978’s Invasion of the Body Snatchers, and Hitchcock’s The Birds — Veronica brings to the role of Eunice Harmon a uniquely chilling sense of danger in an otherwise unassuming package. The character of Eunice was originally supposed to be a one-off, but we were so blown away by Veronica’s performance we knew we had to bring her back.”
The CW show, Gotham Knights, shows a world where Batman has been murdered, and Gotham City churns to chaos without him to protect it. After Bruce Wayne’s murder, his adopted son Turner Hayes (Oscar Morgan) is framed for the crime.
Framed with him are some of Batman’s enemies: Duela (Olivia Rose Keegan), the Joker’s skillful daughter who was born in an asylum and abandoned by him; Harper Row (Fallon Smythe), a street-smart acerbic engineer who is capable of fixing virtually anything; and Harper’s brother Cullen Row (Tyler DiChiara), a smart transgender teen who is sick and tired of being polite.
With District Attorney Harvey Dent (Misha Collins) and the GCPD trying to get their hands on them, Turner Hayes pairs up with these allies and his best friend, Stephanie Brown (Anna Lore), with Batman’s Sidekick, Robin (Navia Robinson), at their side.
The group of misfits quickly learn that something bigger is at play within Gotham City, and they must band together and become the newest generation of city saviors, the Gotham Knights.
Watch the series premiere at 9 p.m. EST on Tuesday, March 14 on The CW. Check out the rest of our Gotham Knights coverage here.
