It been announced that actress Michelle Gomez will play DC charecter ‘Madame Rouge’ in the upcoming third season of Doom Patrol. Madame Rouge is a fictional supervillain appearing in DC Comics, first appearing in Doom Patrol #86 (March 1964). The character was created by Arnold Drake.
Laura De Mille was originally a French stage actress. After an automobile accident, she developed a dual good/evil split personality. At this point, she attracted the notice of The Brain and his associate Monsieur Mallah. With Mallah’s help, the Brain performed surgery on De Mille that was, from his perspective, successful, sublimating her good personality and allowing her evil personality to remain dominant. As Madame Rouge, De Mille became the only female member of the Brotherhood of Evil, and assisted the Brotherhood in its continuing conflicts against the Doom Patrol. At first, Madame Rouge was simply a master of disguise; subsequent surgery by the Brain eventually gave her the ability to alter her appearance and stretch her limbs.Later, Rouge’s split personality manifested again, with her good personality occasionally appearing. Rouge was romantically linked to the Doom Patrol’s leader, Niles Caulder (“The Chief”), who was able to help Rouge overcome her evil side and ally with the Doom Patrol.
DC’s strangest group of heroes; the Doom Patrol consists of Cliff Steele aka Robotman (Brendan Fraser), Larry Trainor aka Negative Man (Matt Bomer), Rita Farr aka Elasti-Woman (April Bowlby), Crazy Jane (Diane Guerrero), and Victor Stone aka Cyborg (Joivan Wade) led by Niles Caulder aka The Chief (Timothy Dalton)
Gomez recently appeared as Madam Satan in Netflix’s Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, will join as a series regular and act alongside Diane Guerrero, April Bowlby and Matt Bomer in Doom Patrol season 3. She will appear as the DC Universe’s complicated and electrifying eccentric, who arrives at Doom Manor with a very specific mission… if only she could remember it. Prior to her HBO Max and Netflix roles, Gomez appeared as Missy in Doctor Who season eight. In 2016 she received a BAFTA nomination for her role in the BBC sci-fi series. Her additional television credits include the HBOs The Brink and Fox’s Gotham, as well as the UK series Bad Education, Psychobitches, Feel the Force, Green Wing, Carrie and Barry and The Book Group.
