Jessica Lucas co-stars on ‘Gotham’ as Tabitha Galavan, one of the murderous villains terrorizing the city whose favorite weapon is a whip.
Jessica Lucas has quickly established herself as a highly sought-after young actress in film and television. Lucas recently was seen in FOX’s “Gracepoint,” based on the U.K.’s critically acclaimed and wildly popular crime drama “Broadchurch,” and in Paul W.S. Anderson’s period action-adventure film, “Pompeii.” Last year, Lucas was in the romantic comedy “That Awkward Moment.”
In 2013, Lucas played “Olivia” in the remake of “Evil Dead.” In 2008, she starred in the hit sci-fi thriller “Cloverfield.” Additional film credits include leading roles in “Big Mommas: Like Father, Like Son” and “The Covenant”; and the romantic comedy “She’s the Man.”
On the small screen, her credits include series regular roles on the dramatic thriller “Cult”; comedy “Friends with Benefits”; the revival of “Melrose Place”; the popular Canadian teen drama “Edgemont”; and the short-lived, yet critically acclaimed series, “Life As We Know It.” Additionally, she had two buzzed-about recurring roles on “90210” and “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation.”
Born and raised in Vancouver, Canada, Lucas has been acting since she was seven years old. She began her professional training with Children’s Theatre Arts and quickly earned theater credits in local productions of “Snow White and The Seven Dwarfs,” “Grease,” “Cinderella” and “The Mousetrap.”
She currently divides her time between Los Angeles and New York.
