GOTHAM: Alexander Siddig talks the return of Ra al Ghul – exclusive interview

In Season 4 of GOTHAM, Thursday nights on Fox, it appeared that young Bruce Wayne (David Mazouz) had killed Alexander Siddig’s character, the enigmatic and nefarious Ra’s al Ghul. However, this is GOTHAM, where the dead don’t always stay dead. Moreover, Siddig remains in the opening credits and has appeared in previews for future episodes, so it seems Ra’s isn’t done tormenting the future Batman just yet. The Sudan-born, English-educated Siddig has major genre cred. Siddig spent seven years as Dr. Julian Bashir in STAR TREK: DEEP SPACE NINE. Other genre work includes REIGN OF FIRE (dragons), PRIMEVAL (dinosaurs), the […]Read On »

As its title suggests, ABC’s Sunday night miniseries TEN DAYS IN THE VALLEY takes place over the course of a week-and-a-half in L.A. County. Kyra Sedgwick (also an executive producer here) stars as TV producer/writer Jane Sadler. Jane, who previously made documentaries, is doing her first drama series, concerned with police corruption, which is closer to reality than some people would like. Jane is also in the middle of a hostile marital separation when her young daughter Lake (Abigail Pniowsky) vanishes from their home in the middle of the night. Adewale Akinnouye-Agbaje (when asked, he cordially supplies the correct pronunciation: […]Read On »
