Jada Pinkett Smith shows her dark side in new series Gotham

2014-09-17 22:00

Los Angeles - Jada Pinkett Smith loves exploring her "dark side" in Gotham.

The 42-year-old beauty stars as gang boss Fish Mooney in the upcoming series set in pre-Batman Gotham City, and she's revealed her new character has allowed her to explore different sides of her personality.

She said: "I have loved it because it gives my shadow a place to play...safely. All that shadow in Jada gets to come out and dive into Fish Mooney and have a life."

She added: "This is my dark side because Fish Mooney doesn't have to be good all the time, and it's really fun, she's a hot headed little woman and there's a lot more to come."

Jada - who is married to fellow Hollywood star Will Smith - stars alongside former The OC actor Ben McKenzie as James Gordon in the Warner Bros. series, which follows him as he rises from rookie detective to future Police Commissioner.

Speaking about working with Sons of Anarchy actor Donal Logue, who plays his on-screen partner Harvey Bullock, Ben told Yahoo News: "Almost every week there's a case that Harvey and James are trying to solve, which ties into the theme of Gotham falling apart.

"And meanwhile the villains that are to become the icons are around and evolve over time."
