BATWOMAN Adds TWIN PEAKS: THE RETURN Actress Elizabeth Anweis As Catherine Hamilton-Kane

Following the recent news that Dougray Scott has joined the cast of The CW's solo Batwoman series as Kate Kane's father, it's been announced that Elizabeth Anweis has also signed on to play her stepmother.

Joining Ruby Rose's caped vigilante in The CW's Batwoman show will be Elizabeth Anweis (9-1-1, Twin Peaks: The Return, The Affair), who will play Kate Kane's (wicked?) stepmother, Catherine Hamilton-Kane.

In the comics, Hamilton-Kane is the second wife of Jacob Kane (Dougray Scott) and heiress to the Hamilton arms fortune. It sounds like she's going to have an antagonistic role on the show, as this take on the character is described as "a savvy, bullheaded defense contractor [and] one of Gotham’s most powerful residents. For Catherine, it’s a matter of the bottom line: Batwoman is bad for business."

Anweis joins previously announced cast members Rachel Skarsten as the show's main villain Alice, and Meagan Tandy, Camrus Johnson, and Nicole Kang, who will play Sophie Moore, Luke Fox and Mary Hamilton, respectively.

It was also recently announced that David Nutter has been forced to drop out of directing the pilot for personal reasons. He'll be replaced by Marcos Siega (The Following, The Vampire Diaries).
