The Vampire Diaries alum Kayla Ewell has been cast as Nocturna on the second season of Ruby Rose’s Batwoman.
Entertainment Weekly reports that the 13th episode of Ruby Rose’s Batwoman will introduce Nocturna to the series, with The Vampire Diaries alum Kayla Ewell in the role of the vampiric DC Comics villain. The outlet notes that Batwoman‘s version of Nocturna will be an “alluring and seductive” villain who preys on the beautiful people of Gotham City due to a rare disease that causes her need for human blood.
In the comics, Nocturna was introduced as a pale skinned thief with light sensitivity before eventually becoming a love interest to Bruce Wayne. However, DC Comics’ New 52 re-introduced Nocturna as a Batwoman villain whose romantic relationship with Kate caused controversy and raised issues of consent due to mind-control being involved in their partnership.
