Bruno Heller, “Gotham”‘s developer, talked to Speakeasy about what is to come in the second part of the first season of the show, and also comments on the best elements of the first half of the season, including Camren Bicondova and David Mazouz’s acting skills:
Performances that helped convince the writers to play up certain characters more than planned:
The child actors, partcularly Camren Bicondova (Selina Kyle) and Mazouz, have also done well, in the writer-producer’s opinion. “With both of those two it’s just been a joy to see real, natural, great acting, and so we’ve used both of those guys more than we would have done otherwise.”
And there is more to come when “Gotham” comes back this Monday, with a brand new episode!
Happy new year, everyone!
Fox released preview clips from the upcoming episode of “Gotham”, “Rogues’ Gallery”. Here is a clip showing Selina Kyle (Camren Bicondova) helping Ivy Pepper (Clare Foley):

Donal Logue, who plays detective Harvey Bullock in “Gotham”, spoke to Collider about his recent roles and his work on “Gotham”. He was asked about working with David Mazouz, whom he praises:
Collider: What’s it like to have David Mazouz, at the center of all of this?
LOGUE: He reminds us all of what we’re supposed to be doing, which is to pretend really hard that the stakes are the real stakes. He’s amazing. I love David. It’s great to see Sean [Pertwee] cut loose a little bit, too. We have a great group of people. Everybody in the cast is great.
