Former NIKITA Star Melinda Clarke Set To Recur On GOTHAM

If you were a fan of The O.C., you should like this news as a mini-reunion is happening relatively soon. A new report has revealed that Ben McKenzie's former O.C. co-star Melinda Clarke has signed up for a recurring gig on his hit Fox show Gotham. Come check it out!


E! Online learned yesterday that Fox's Gotham has added Melinda Clarke in a recurring role as Grace Van Dahl, an original character. Clarke will make her debut in episode 15, which is a few weeks after the show returns from its winter hiatus. Her character is being described as "attractive and cultured", but also as someone who is "desperate for money and power. While she's adept at playing the perfect hostess and wife, all the while she's plotting how she can lie and cheat—and even kill!—to get what she wants." Based on some of Clarke's past credits, this new role should fit right in her wheelhouse. 

Signing up for Gotham reunites Clarke with her former The O.C. co-star Ben McKenzie and also makes her the first one of McKenzie's former co-stars to make an appearance on his hit Fox drama.

In addition to The O.C., Clarke most recently had a starring role on The CW's Nikita, playing Amanda and going head-to-head with Maggie Q & Lyndsy Fonseca. She's also made appearances on several television series, including, but not limited to, Chuck, Entourage, & The Vampire Diaries.

So, what do you guys think? Sound off with your thoughts below!



The stakes are higher than ever as Gotham explores the origin stories of some of the most ambitious and depraved Super Villains, including The Riddler, The Joker and Mr. Freeze, and Bruce Wayne uncovers more secrets from his father’s past.
