Batwoman is no stranger to drama! Batwoman recast Kate Kane with Wallis Day, according to Deadline!
Kane’s original portrayer Ruby Rose vacated the role shrouded in controversy in early summer. This was quite the shocker as she was the “big name” of the series. Ultimately, it was decided Kate Kane’s character would be replaced by Ryan Wilder and actress Javicia Leslie. Showrunner, Caroline Dries, swore Kate Kane would not be recast. However, that has changed.
In a soapy move, Kane’s character was discovered to be alive, but an accident left her unrecognizable. Currently, she has been kidnapped. The verdict is still out on whether she will have amnesia. Reportedly, the second half of the season will follow Kate’s journey since she’s been gone.
Day portrayed Nyssa-Vex on Syfy’s Krypton and appeared as Olalla in the mini-series Jekyll & Hyde. She also appeared as Violet Lookalike in E!’s The Royals. Her early credits include the British soap Hollyoaks.
Leslie will continue to be Gotham City’s Batwoman! Drop us a line in the comments on Kate Kane’s sudden return! Watch Batwoman on Sundays on The CW!
