Kayla krijgt een tweede kans om een vampire te spelen, zo luid het nieuwsbericht waarin bekend wordt gemaakt dat ze de rol van vampier Nocturna zal gaan spelen in een opkomende aflevering van de CW serie ‘Batwoman’
Kayla Ewell is getting a second chance at life as a vampire on Batwoman.
EW has confirmed that The Vampire Diaries alum will play the vampiric DC Comics villain Nocturna in the freshman superhero drama’s 13th episode, titled “Drink Me” and airing Feb. 23.
Created in the ’80s, Nocturna was initially introduced as a thief who had a pale skin and light sensitivity after an accident, and eventually became one of Bruce Wayne’s love interests; however, in DC Comics’ 2011 New 52 reboot, the character was reintroduced as a vampire and one of Batwoman’s villains. Nocturna and Kate entered into a romantic relationship during a 2014-2015 arc, which was controversial because hypnosis and mind-control were involved, raising issues of consent. Just this week, Noctruna popped up in a Batwoman one-shot included in DC’s Valentine’s Day special Crimes of Passion.
In Batwoman‘s take, the alluring and seductive villain preys on the beautiful people of Gotham to sustain her need for human blood caused by a rare disease. In fact, a mid-season promo release in January showed Nocturna taking a bite out of one unlucky Gothamite. Up until now, Batwoman has favored more grounded villains (except for in the recently concluded crossover), but Nocturna seems like somewhat of a departure from that trend.
