A behind-the-scenes video from Gotham shows how Cameron Monaghan was able to transform into the chaotic Joker.
Gotham came to a ceremonious end last year by showing Bruce Wayne fully assuming the role of Batman, setting up the character’s future legacy. Near its end, Gotham was able to finally show us Cameron Monaghan’s Joker, who was dubbed as “J”. One of the most nefarious parts of Gotham, Cameron Monaghan was endlessly praised for giving the iconic character of the Joker a solid backstory and backbone. Beyond that, the design and make-up team of Gotham were complimented for giving Cameron Monaghan’s version of the Joker an interesting, unique look that married the iconic purple-suit with skin that was fairly aged and mangled.
Now, in a brand new behind-the-scenes video from the dressing room of Gotham, fans can finally check out Cameron Monaghan transforming into the sadistic role of the Joker.

The video showcasing Cameron Monaghan was taken by Ben Bornstein, a well-known make-up artist who has worked with the Joker star before. In the video, which was filmed in late 2018, Cameron Monaghan shows off the silicone prosthetics that were used on him to make him the perfect Joker for Gotham. The video is creepy enough to be an extension of Cameron Monaghan’s role in Gotham, as it perfectly exudes the cruel, weird energy that the Joker is known to exude. A relic like this perfectly captures the magic that Cameron Monaghan was able to capture as the Joker in Gotham. Now that Gotham has come to an end, fans will have to get their Joker fix someplace else.
