I know no one's going to believe this is true, but it's true.— Rachel Maddow MSNBC (@maddow) October 4, 2019
I'm "Vesper Fairchild" in the new Batwoman TV show that starts this Sunday night on The CW.

She's playing Vesper Fairchild, who in the comics was a Radio/TV personality. Though she will "appear" in multiple episodes, she won't be seen onscreen.
"We consider Vesper Fairchild to be the sardonic Voice of Gotham. In addition to Rachel’s interest in Batwoman, we thought she’d be the perfect casting choice because her own hard-hitting journalism wildly contrasts Vesper’s penchant for snark, gossip and criticism of female superheroes," said showrunner Caroline Dries.
Batwoman premieres this Sunday.
