Polly Walker is joining Epix’ Batman prequel series Pennyworth, according to Deadline. The outlet reports that Walker (Rome) is set to star in a recurring role on the series as Peggy Sykes, the sister of the primary antagonist Bet Sykes. The outlet says that Peggy is one of Lancashire’s busiest and most successful dominatrixes and fiercely loyal to her family, endlessly resourceful and lives by her own strange yet rigorous moral code.

Walking joins a cast that includes Jack Bannon as Alfred Pennyworth, Ben Aldridge as Thomas Wayne, Ryan Fletcher as Dave Boy, Hainsley Lloyd Bennett as Bazza, Paloma Faith as Bet Sykes, and Jason Flemyng as Lord Harwood.

Pennyworth follows Bruce Wayne’s legendary butler, Alfred Pennyworth, a former British SAS soldier in his 20’s, who forms a security company and goes to work with a young billionaire Thomas Wayne, who’s not yet Bruce’s father, in 1960s London. Production began in October at Warner Bros. Studios Leavesden in the UK.
