In The Bustle Booth With Erin Richards

Guillermo Perez/Bustle

When celebrities come into Bustle HQ in New York, whether it's for a photoshoot, videoshoot, or a Facebook Live, we want to give them the chance to leave their mark. Literally. So we hand them a pen, a piece of paper, a few questions, and ask them to get creative. The rest is up to them. This time, actor Erin Richards is leaving her mark in the Bustle Booth.

Gotham fans know Richards best as Jim Gordon's love interest turned powerful villain Barbara Kean. In Season 3, Barbara has ascended to the top of the Gotham food chain with nothing but her skill and an impressive wardrobe that would strike fear in the heart of any of Batman's future foes. With the finale coming soon, and Gotham's fate at Fox still to be determined, Richards recently revealed to Bustle that she knows exactly what's next for her constantly evolving character — but she's not telling.

What she did divulge in the Bustle Booth were a few secrets of her own, like what scares her the most (the current political climate) and what she would love to tell people (you're perfect just as you are). Richards' answers revealed she's miles away from her on-screen persona in Gotham City, and that will probably only make you admire her talent more.
