The Bat girl the film is currently shooting in Glasgow and has a rumors around that a character very close to Leslie Grace’s protagonist could appear in the film.
Several photos have been circulated from the series, including Our first look in Bat girl conforms to itself. The assumption is that a lot of source material is being sifted from Batgirl: Year One series, and that will include the addition of Alysia Yeoh, Barbara Gordon’s best kisser and also roommate.
The photo in question is related to actor Ivory Aquino’s photo. She is a relatively unknown actress but she made waves as Cecilia Chung in When we wake up. Here is that photo.
In the comics, Yeoh is a transgender woman and a bartender. Aquino is a transgender actress who didn’t come out publicly until after ABC When we wake up, about the gay rights movement in America. She told IndieWire where she previously played transgender characters.
“This is my first transgender role because I have played transgender roles on stage,” Aquino told IndieWire of her role in the miniseries. “I was in New York doing plays, performing Shakespeare. I played Juliet two seasons ago in Bryant Park, and no one knew I was transgender. And that doesn’t matter to the audience because they’re so invested in the story. After playing Juliet, for me, I said to a castrated friend, “Now I can go to heaven.”
She said she was never pressured to take the field and came to the decision to do so of her own accord.
“The whole thing is very sensitive because you want people to do it on their own terms,” she said. “ABC never pressured me to do that, but they asked me if I wanted to deal with it, and I said yes. They were very supportive. ”
She said that a meeting with a friend made her decide to share her story.
“I live in New York, and… there’s someone I know. We had a conversation. He is of Serbian descent. The LGBTQ community was nurtured, and he said, ‘Yes, I hate those people. I can’t stand them,” Aquino said. “It was a shock to me when he said this. And I live a very private, private life, but then I really felt the urge to tell him, ‘You know what? I’m transgender, and you can’t hate a trans person because you’re my friend. ‘”
Bat girl slated for release sometime in 2022.
