Bicondova is young Catwoman
HONOLULU (AP) — If you want an executive producer to cast you as the next Catwoman and you’re not sure of your feline sensibilities, then it’s best to consult a cat.
Just ask Camren Bicondova. She watched her own cat, Mr G, and landed the role of Selina Kyle – aka Catwoman – on Gotham, the new Batman-inspired TV series from Fox.
It’s the first major acting role for the 15-year-old Bicondova, who lived in Hawaii for three years when her father, a Navy SEAL, was stationed at Pearl Harbour.
“When they told me I would be Selina Kyle, I freaked out,” she said in a call from New York, where Gotham is shot.
“I didn’t cry in front of my mom or my manager but when I got home, I cried some joy. I was really excited. I feel blessed to be part of this project.”
Unless you’re a fan of hip-hop dance, Bicondova is probably not a household name. But if Gotham makes it, Bicondova could become one of TV’s fresh new faces.
While in Hawaii Bicondova belonged to the dance group 8 Flavahz, which made it to the championship round of MTV’s America’s Best Dance Crew two years ago. Not long afterward, her father was transferred to the mainland and Bicondova wound up in Los Angeles with acting aspirations.
