Selina Kyle is the mysterious alter ego of the infamously sleek Catwoman, the classic comic book villain.

So who is the latest to play the supervillainess in the new television series Gotham? Camren Bicondova is the new Catwoman.

Social Media Butterfly
She's a Cat Woman, Really
Bicondova is a self described "cat lover" and posts many pictures of real cats and stuffed animals on her social media accounts. I assume this only helped her preparation to take on the Catwoman role in Gotham.
Camren Bicondova loves to give back as much as she can. Two of Camren's favorite non-profit organizations are the SEAL Legacy Foundation and Got Your 6. Her father is an active military member which is why she identifies with the Legacy Foundation which helps support families of the fallen or wounded. Got Your 6 assists veterans with the transition into civilian life. She has also completed a 10K for Stop Cancer and keeps in touch with pen pals through Child Fund International.
She has appeared in commercials for Acura, Ivivva Athletica, Vlado Footwear, and Dance Spirit Magazine.
