Royals actor Christina Wolfe will portray Julia Pennyworth, daughter of Bruce Wayne’s butler Alfred, on CW’s Batwoman, as announced in Entertainment Weekly.
Batwoman‘s Julia Pennyworth is described as “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.”
Here’s a clip introducing her to the show:
Julia Pennyworth has appeared in multiple eras of DC continuity. Created by Gerry Conway and Don Newton, Julia Pennyworth was originally Alfred’s daughter with French World War 2 freedom fighter Mademoiselle Marie. In the “Rebirth” era Batwoman series, an updated version of the character functioned as Batwoman’s “man in the chair” several times.
Wolfe is expected to debut in this Sunday’s Batwoman episode.
Wolf will debut in the role in Batwoman episode 7.
