Morena Baccarin is Dr. Leslie Thompkins in ‘Gotham’


Morena Baccarin earned an Emmy nomination for her work on Homeland, and now she’s heading to Gotham.

Baccarin will play Dr. Leslie Thompkins, a gifted and dedicated physician who was a friend of Bruce Wayne’s parents, Thomas and Martha. She is determined to use her skills to aid Gotham’s most in need, which currently means working at the newly opened Arkham Asylum’s Home for the Criminally Insane. In addition to her medical skills, her coolness under pressure will serve her well as she finds herself drawn close to James Gordon and into more and more dangerous waters.
