Erin Richards rises as a villain in 'Gotham'

Erin Richards has played good and evil on Gotham. When the season started, Barbara was engaged to future police Commissioner Jim Gordon...and fans assumed she would become his wife. Instead, she killed her parents, got sent to a mental hospital, escaped, and has done lots of bad things.

She's now joined forces with the new big bad.

Erin can also be seen on the big screen alongside Jared Harris and Sam Claflin in Lionsgate’s The Quiet Ones, directed by John Pogue.  

This past winter she was seen in theaters starring opposite Sharlto Copley, Joseph Morgan and Thomas Kretschmann in the independent film Open Grave, directed by Gonzalo López-Gallego.  Additional television credits include starring opposite Chris Klein in the pilot which HBO produced for Fox, and starring opposite Megan Mullally and Christian Slater on the Fox series, Breaking In. 

She also starred in the original UK version of BBC’S long running hit series Being Human. 

Erin is a Welsh actress who got her start on the stage and now splits her time between London and Los Angeles.

She trained at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama.

'Gotham' airs Monday nights at 8:00pm - right here on FOX.
