Kate Kane is getting another set of helping hands on ‘Batwoman’. ‘The Royals” Christina Wolfe joins the cast as Julia Pennyworth, the daughter of Bruce Wayne’s butler, Alfred. Julia is described as a “crafty and quick-witted British secret service agent, who shares a complicated past with Kate Kane, which impedes her mission as the two set sights on the same target.”
In the comics, Julia was estranged from her father, but wound up helping the Bat-Family after he was injured. She assisted Batwoman in her battle against the Many Arms of Death terrorist group. Both Julia and The Rifle (Garfield Wilson), a villain associated with the Many Arms of Death, debut in this weekend’s episode “Tell Me the Truth.”
You can watch a preview of the episode below:
As you can see Julia and Kate’s relationship may not be completely amicable as they are seen tussling at the beginning of the clip. As Kate says, “Figured Alfred would’ve taught you better manners,” to which Julia replies, “Let’s leave my father out of this.”
Below, you can find another look at Wolfe in the role of Julia:
Wolfe had the recurring role of Kathryn Davis on E!’s ‘The Royals’ and she appeared in the Lifetime original movie ‘Very Valentine’. She will next be seen in the comedy ‘Tin Holiday’. Wolfe was born Christina Ulfsparre, and that is the name she was billed by in her earliest works, and she appears to be transitioning back to using that surname.
In addition, “Tell Me the Truth” introduces the villain The Rifle, part of the Many Arms of Death, a terrorist organization that specializes in selling arms, and operates under the false name The Kali Corporation. On ‘Batwoman’, Garfield Wilson portrays him. Wilson may be recognized for playing Leon on ‘The Man in the High Castle’. He can also be seen in the Hallmark original movie ‘Write Before Christmas’. He will appear on the upcoming TNT series ‘Snowpiercer’ as Jackboot Kaffey.
“Tell Me the Truth” premiers on The CW this Sunday, December 17 at 8pm EST.
Jax's earliest memory is of watching 'Batman,' followed shortly by a memory of playing Batman & Robin with a friend, which entailed running outside in just their underwear and towels as capes. When adults told them they couldn't run around outside in their underwear, both boys promptly whipped theirs off and ran around in just capes.
