On the Season 3 premiere episode of Gotham, ‘Mad City: Better to Reign in Hell,’ the Gotham police department holds a press conference to assure the public that there’s nothing to worry about when it comes to Indian Hills. One relentless reporter in the crowd, Valerie Vale, stands out. She keeps pushing Captain Barnes (Michael Chiklis) for answers. “How many of these escapees are at large?” she asks. “20, 30…” that’s when Oswald Cobblepot shows up and announces that the escapees are organized and led by Fish Mooney (Jada Pinkett Smith). After the press conference, she finds Gordon (Ben McKenzie) at a bar and asks for his opinion.
Valerie Vale is portrayed by Jamie Chung. She’s known for her roles on Once Upon a Time (Mulan), Resident Advisors (Olivia), Believe (Janice Channing), and Days of Our Lives (Cordy Han), among others. Chung is also recognized for her role as Lauren in The Hangover movies (Lauren, Ed Helms’ wife). Gotham airs Mondays at 8pm on FOX.
