Nathan Darrow – who is best known for his role as Meechum, the loyal bodyguard of the Underwoods in Netflix’s “House of Cards” – has scored the recurring role of Victor Fries (aka Mr. Freeze) on the Batman prequel series “Gotham” on FOX.
In the series, Fries is one of Gotham’s preeminent cryogenics engineers who is ferociously smart but struggles to make meaningful connections with others. The exception is his wife Nora whom he loves unconditionally, though she has tragically fallen ill with a terminal disease.
Arnold Schwarzenegger, George Sanders and Michael Ansara have played the character on screen before, with his most celebrated incarnation being in the 1990s “Batman” animated series.
