Batwoman - Sebastian Roché and Rachel Maddow to Recur



Sebastian Roché is returning to the CW. The former The Vampire Diaries and The Originals star is set to join the network’s Batwoman in a recurring role.

Roché, known for his role as Mikael Mikaelson on TVD and its spinoff, will play Dr. Campbell, one of Gotham’s most well-respected plastic surgeons and philanthropists, on Batwoman.

The MSNBC host, Rachel Maddow — currently enjoying a big ratings bump amid talk of a presidential impeachment — will have a key role in the Ruby Rose-led drama.

Maddow takes on the role of Vesper Fairchild, a character from the Batman comics. Fairchild is a television and radio personality who had a romantic relationship with Bruce Wayne (Batman). The Batwoman catch is that Maddow's Fairchild will never appear onscreen — at least there are no current plans for her to do so. Still, Maddow is expected to "appear" in multiple episodes.

"We consider Vesper Fairchild to be the sardonic Voice of Gotham," Batwoman showrunner Caroline Dries told The Hollywood Reporter in a statement. "In addition to Rachel’s interest in Batwoman, we thought she’d be the perfect casting choice because her own hard-hitting journalism wildly contrasts Vesper’s penchant for snark, gossip and criticism of female superheroes."
