Ben McKenzie (Jim Gordon) promoted the return of “Gotham” yesterday and answered fan questions during a live chat on reddit. He was asked about his young co-stars on the show and briefly talked about David Mazouz, Camren Bicondova and Clare Foley (Ivy Pepper):
Hi Ben! Do you get all the references that appear in “Gotham”?
100% no. Usually David Mazouz has to explain all of the references to me (and all of the “older” actors)!
How do you like working with the younger actors in your current series? Child actors can be hit or miss, but the kids on “Gotham” seems to be consistently stellar! Do you guys have fun on set?
I love them. David, Camren and Clare are just great actors and really nice “young people”. I feel so old right now :)
Camren Bicondova attended IMATS New York (International Make-Up Artists Trade Show) on April 11, where a panel was dedicated to “Gotham”.
Before Batman: The Secrets of “Gotham”
One of the breakout hits of the 2014-15 TV season, “Gotham” follows the origins of Batman’s greatest villains, including The Joker, Penguin, Catwoman, Poison Ivy and The Riddler. Make-up department head John Perkins leads a discussion on creating looks for these iconic characters. Panelist include John, Dave Presto, Sarah Tollenaar and Camren Bicondova.
A few pictures of the event are available in the gallery, as well as an interview of Camren and the make-up artists working on the show (they appear at 4:49:48).
Two HQ stills from the twentieth episode of “Gotham”, “Under the Knife”, were added to the gallery. Click the thumbnails below to view them:
