Erin Richards Interview
Gotham‘s Erin Richards speaks with THR about the upcoming series finale. Note: Arrow, The Flash, and Gotham did not air new episodes this week.
The big news: Gotham‘s Erin Richards spoke with THR about the final two episodes of the series and how her character Barbara actually comes full circle with a redemption arc. It may seem impossible, but it’s happening.
What it means: “It’s madness,” Richards tells THR with a laugh. “We pack so much into these last two episodes that I remember getting the scripts and thinking, ‘How are we going to be able to shoot all this?’ But it’s such a great ending. Epic, exciting and satisfying. It’s a really beautiful way to end Barbara’s story.”
Barbara’s redemption comes just after she gave birth to her and Jim Gordon’s (Ben McKenzie) child, and Richards reveals that motherhood is exactly what Barbara has been searching for all this time.
“In the final episode, we jump 10 years and that’s going to be a very different person because we all change a lot in 10 years,” says the actress. “The way I played her in that final episode was to take elements of who she was right when we first met her and just advance them and make her more grounded and a more full version of herself by the end. In a way, I felt like it came full circle to something I began with.”
While Richards can’t reveal too much about how Barbara has changed in those 10 years, she does say the former gangster has gone legit. “She has a 10-year-old child, she’s now a businesswoman in Gotham and she got everything that she deserved,” she says. “It’s nice to end in this place where she’s a strong, fully independent businesswoman after everything she’s gone through. And there might be a change of hair color.”
While fans have long speculated that Barbara was an early version of a Batman supervillain, be it Harley Quinn or even a female Joker, Richards confirms that she’s never actually been anyone other than Barbara. “I like that Barbara got to be her own person and never actually became one of the supervillains from the comics.
She held her own,” Richards says. “She rose to the top of Gotham. She ran the underworld. She’s her own woman running a large company and being successful in Gotham at the end. She never had to be anyone but herself.”
Even when Barbara got pregnant and everyone on the show questioned whether she could be a good mother, Barbara refused to listen to her haters, and Richards is glad the character is able to prove them all wrong in the final two episodes.
“There’s been a lot of questioning of her and her abilities to be a mother and deep down, she was scared of that herself — but how dare anyone else brings that up,” says the actress. “It’s my body, my choice, my world, you don’t really have a say in it.
When she finally has the baby, it’s a real moment of conclusion of everything she had been working towards: her journey has always been finding herself and her place in the world. She just wanted a thing or a person to love unconditionally because she never felt unconditionally loved by anyone, not her parents, not Jim, not anybody in Gotham.
Feeling that unconditional love for another human has completely grounded her and made her happy.”
Barbara’s decision to become a mother in her own way dovetailed kind of perfectly with her entire journey over the course of the series as Gotham‘s biggest feminist, which is what Richards is most proud of from her time on the show.
“Gotham by its own admission is quite a male-dominated world,” she says. “Batman and a lot of comic book worlds are very male-dominated but moving forward, we’re seeing a lot more female characters and influences coming into the comic book world, and that’s really great for everybody, men and women alike.”
Continues Richards, “So to be able to tell that very feminine story and show a strong woman supporting other women and being able to play all the different sides of Barbara, showing that a woman can be everything, strong and vulnerable, in love, having a baby, all these different aspects of being a woman has been a real honor to me and a real asset to the program.”
Other noteworthy moments: Richards recently pulled double duty on Gotham and stepped behind the camera to direct an episode during the final season during a time when gender equality at every level in Hollywood has become an important conversation.
There is still so much room for improvement when it comes to the number of female directors, and getting the chance to helm an episode changed Richard’s perspective on the industry.
“It’s made me incredibly positive about the future — there are so many incredible female voices coming up through the ranks of directing and writing now,” she says. “It needed to happen a long time ago and I’m so happy it’s happening now.
The more female voices we have in the industry the better because women’s stories are so interesting, they need to be told. We’ve had lots of male-driven stories but we’re repeating the same stories now whereas if we have more female writers, more female directors coming up through the ranks, we’ll see a lot more diversity in terms of the stories and messages we’re sending out there.”
And Richards has some ideas on how to help push the needle forward on gender equality behind the camera.”I’d love to see more shows implementing a 50/50 female and male directing policy in their shows,” she says. “That, in turn, will lead to more younger women seeing that as a career option.
When I was younger, there were barely any big-name female directors that I could aspire to whereas men had all the big-name directors. So when men went into the industry, they were like, ‘Of course, I could direct because that man does it, that man does it and that man does it.’ Whereas a woman, I didn’t have that.”
She continues, “My energy went into acting but had I had that early on the constant reminder that I could be a director as a female, I could have gone straight into directing. Now I hope there will be more of that and young females who want to be directors will see much more of that and know it is a viable career path for them which is just brilliant.”
