Not only is it becoming more dangerous for the denizens of “Gotham” to have future Catwoman Selina Kyle cross their paths, actress Camren Bicondova hints she’s also inching closer to becoming the feline-minded femme fatale of the comics.
As Selina continues to tread a dangerous line between supporting and selling out her new mentor, the freshly powered-up Fish Mooney, jealousy, betrayal and matters of the heart also threaten to complicate the increasingly teenage proto-villainess’ life, as the 17-year-old actress reveals to CBR.
On Selina’s reaction to Gotham’s transformation into this season’s titular “Mad City,” and the rise of monstrous, powered-up threats:
Camren Bicondova: She’s creeped out just as much as everyone else. I think she gets a firsthand experience with it, though because she’s working with Fish. And instead of Fish having an entourage of gangsters, she has her entourage of monsters, people who have been experimented on and have these really weird, futuristic abilities.
The fact that Selina gets a firsthand experience with that makes it even more creepy and scary for her, because she actually has to watch what she’s doing now… It definitely creeps her out as much as it does everyone else.
On Selina’s fragile alliance with Fish Mooney:
Selina actually loves it. Initially, Selina doesn’t know what’s going on with Fish – she just knows that he needs Selina’s help. It’s not until they almost get caught that Selina figures out that Fish also has one of these abilities, and that’s part of the reason why she has these monsters as part of her entourage.
I mean, I think it creeps Selina out, but I think Selina also thinks it’s cool because it’s almost like a mentor of hers is now even cooler than she was before. I don’t think that Selina minds it, because it’s not a dangerous power – just like all her other monsters that’s part of the group. It’s more of an enhancement than a danger.
On where Selina is in terms of becoming closer to the Catwoman fans know and love:
She’s been taking baby steps. I think this season she’s going to be taking bigger steps. But I don’t think she’s going to get there yet. She’s definitely going into a darker path this season, and I’m really excited.
On Selina’s relationship with Ivy after Ivy’s startling blossoming into an adult:
Initially, Selina doesn’t know that it’s Ivy Pepper that she’s known this whole time. She just thinks that it’s this new girl who happens to be really beautiful: just this new girl on the block, I guess.
Once she finds out that it is her friend that she’s known, I think she’s going to be hurt. I think it’s going to be very much a feeling of betrayal and dishonesty. Selina isn’t one for either of those things, because she’s very loyal to her people that she connects with. So it’s not going to be good.
On how a fractured relationship between Selina and Ivy pertains to Bruce Wayne:
I think the only reason Ivy comes between Bruce and Selina would be out of jealously to kind of get under Selina’s skin. I think that’s what I get from it, but I don’t know exactly what happens – but I think Ivy’s definitely going to shake some things up this season!
