In the Gotham episode “A Dark Knight: A Day in the Narrows,” cop killer Professor Pyg (guest star Michael Cerveris) continues to terrorize the city. While Gordon (Ben McKenzie) and Bullock (Donal Logue) search the Narrows for clues, Bruce Wayne (David Mazouz) reunites with a female friend named Grace Blomdahl. She convinces him to come out with her and some other old classmates. This isn’t just the first time Gotham fans are meeting the character Grace but it’s the actress’s TV debut. Grace is portrayed by guest star Samia Finnerty. The 20-year-old has performed in the off-Broadway production of The Wolves but this is her first credit on imdb.
Samia Finnerty is the daughter of actor/singer Dan Finnerty (hilarious wedding singer in Old School and The Hangover) and actress Kathy Najimy (Sister Act, Hocus Pocus, Veronica’s Closet). Fun fact: When Samia’s parents got married in 1995, Gloria Steinem officiated the ceremony. Samia is their only child. And yes, she can sing, too. See video below. Gotham airs Thursdays at 8pm on FOX.
