PHOTOS: Alexander Siddig at Comic Con 2017 Sun, 23 Jul 2017 22:44:04 +0000 FOX brought a bunch of cast members from Gotham to San Diego Comic Con this year, including Alexander Siddig who attended the event for the first time. (I know, how has Sid never been to this before?!?) I had the opportunity to interview Sid in the Gotham press room – this is my 10th year covering SDCC as a journalist – and will be posting that interview later this week. In the meantime, here’s a round up of photos from the many, many, many things Sid did this weekend.

Note: I’ll be adding to this post, so stay tuned!

FIRST LOOK: Alexander Siddig as Ra’s al Ghul {VIDEO} Fri, 02 Jun 2017 03:29:59 +0000 It’s here! Our first look at Alexander Siddig as R’as al Ghul on Gotham, and he looks incredible! Watch this introduction video and meet me on the other side.

I don’t know a lot about the Bat’verse – the recent, mythology heavy movies are a bit on the grimdark side for me –
but I do know that R’as al Ghul is an ambiguous character who is both villain and mentor for Bruce Wayne. Looks like Sid is having fun playing with that ambiguity. Did anyone else get chills when he said that Ra’s wants to “get Bruce to cross a line that he should never cross”? Looking forward to his debut on Monday!

The two-part season finale of Gotham airs Monday, June 5 at 8/7c on FOX.

GOTHAM Season Finale Preview Teases Ra’s al Ghul Tue, 30 May 2017 16:43:29 +0000 Alexander Siddig’s big Gotham debut is next week in the two-part season finale, teased in the preview following last night’s episode. FOX is keeping Sid’s R’as al Ghul under wraps for the most part. The promo gives us just the teeniest glimpse, and we hear him at the end, but no clear shots. They’ve yet to release any photos of Sid in character, either, although they released a set of 30 promo photos for the finale. Building up to a big reveal?

Official synopsis:

With the deadly virus spreading throughout the city, the search for the antidote continues, as Fish Mooney (guest star Jada Pinkett Smith), The Riddler and Penguin reveal plans of their own. Bruce meets Ra’s Al Ghul (guest star Alexander Siddig) and completes his last task in order to fulfill his destiny, but realizes he can’t let go of his past. Meanwhile, Gordon tries to win back Lee, and past alliances within Gotham City are broken, while new alliances are formed in the all-new, special two-hour “Heroes Rise: Destiny Calling/ Heroes Rise: Heavydirtysoul” season finale episode of GOTHAM airing Monday, June 5 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.

Ra’s al Ghul is “ambiguous” says Siddig Sat, 01 Apr 2017 07:00:48 +0000 Alexander Siddig gave his first interview about playing Ra’s al Ghul on FOX’s Gotham, telling Digital Spy that the weekly television format means he’s chosen to play the supervillain “in a more ambiguous way” than we might have expected

“I really tried to be as ambiguous as possible. I’ve only done two episodes and as an actor in episodic television, I don’t know what the next script is, so I’m confronted with finding a way to play something really dark in a more ambiguous way.”

He goes on to share a glimpse of the character as described in the script: “You’re really not sure if he’s good or bad – no-one knows whether he’s a demon or a saint, or a ghost, that’s a line from the script.”

Read more from Siddig about how much fun he’s having with the character and how he’s chosen to pronounce “Ra’s” – a topic of some debate, apparently – over at Digital Spy.

Gotham returns to FOX on Monday, April 24 at 8/7c. The series also airs on Channel 5 in the UK.

Alexander Siddig Voices “Alien: River of Pain” for Audible Fri, 31 Mar 2017 17:54:30 +0000 Audible announced this week that Alexander Siddig is starring in their new audio play Alien: River of Pain.

Based on the 2014 novel, Alien: River of Pain is set between the first and second films in the franchise and chronicles the birth and backstory of Aliens‘ Newt. The play explores the destruction of Hadley’s Hope, a research and mining colony in 2157.

Siddig plays “ruthless” Doctor Reese, as Siddig told Den of Geek: “I play a character called Dr. Reese, who’s one of a group of scientists sent to the far reaches of space to hopefully capture an alien alive – despite whatever human cost that incurs. So I’m not a particularly nice piece of work.”

Joining Siddig are Anna Friel, Philip Glenister, Michelle Ryan, Colin Salmon and Mark Warren all feature in River of Pain, from award-winning radio producer Dirk Maggs.

Alien: River of Pain will be released April 26, 2017. It’s available for pre-order now at Audible and Audible UK.
