Golden-Globe nominated actress Polly Walker (“Rome,” “Patriot Games”) has scored a recurring role in the upcoming Batman prequel series “Pennyworth” from Epix.
The story follows Bruce Wayne’s legendary butler, Alfred Pennyworth, in his twenties. A former British SAS soldier, he goes on to form a security company and goes to work with a young billionaire Thomas Wayne in 1960s London.
Walker is set to play Peggy Sykes, sister of the primary antagonist Bet Sykes, who is also one of Lancashire’s busiest and most successful dominatrixes.
She’s fiercely loyal to her family, endlessly resourceful and lives by her own strange yet rigorous moral code. The ten-episode, one-hour drama series is currently in production at Warner Bros. Studios Leavesden. Bruno Heller and Danny Cannon (“Gotham”) executive produce.
