Sunny will be portraying Crystal Brown, Arthur’s wife, and it’s actually her audition that got the couple in the show!
“We were blown away by Sunny’s audition for Gotham Knights. It was immediately clear she had the expansive emotional range needed to play this deeply polarizing character,” series creators Chad Fiveash, James Stoteraux and Natalie Abrams said in a statement. “And then we were delighted to discover that Sunny’s husband is an actor who has many fans among our cast, crew and writers. Ethan’s brought Arthur to life in such rich, delightfully disturbing ways. We hope to surprise fans of the mythos with where our story is going, though we’ll give you a clue … Quiz Bowl airs weeknights in Gotham.”
Arthur and Crystal are also parents to Stephanie, who is played by previously announced Anna Lore.
THR reports that Arthur Brown is “a meticulous and eccentric game show host and always the smartest person in the room. he’s charming and perfectly coiffed, with high expectations for his daughter Stephanie, the only person who comes close to matching his intellect. But a dark side lurks beneath the surface.”
In the comics, Arthur is the alter ego of the Batman villain Cluemaster.
Crystal is described as “elegant and eye-catching. To those closest to her, however, Crystal runs warm as sunshine one minute, and brutally ice cold the next, because she’s battling a secret addiction that could ruin her family.”
Sunny will make her first appearance in episode five, while Ethan‘s first appearance will be in the following episode six.
