Clare Foley, who has played the role of Ivy Pepper on “Gotham” since 2014, has been replaced with “All My Children” alum Maggie Geha (Susan, 2013). TVLine has learned exactly how FOX will explain the growth spurt from a talented orphan to a full-fledged villainess. Ivy Pepper, now nineteen, is reborn after an encounter with an Indian Hill monster and on her way to becoming the villainess, Poison Ivy, who sets her sights on Bruce Wayne (David Mazouz). She’ll make her first appearance during the season three return on Monday September 19 at 8:00. Geha also stars as Gale in the thriller “The Harrow,” which surrounds a southern drifter who experiences visions of his dead lover (Geha).

Tom Degnan’s Fourth of July wedding.
In July 2015, Soaps.com reported that soap alum Tom Degnan got engaged and now we’re happy to announce the actor and fiancée Erin Cummings are married! The couple wed at the Basilica of the Sacred Heart at The University of Notre Dame during this past Fourth of July holiday. We send the newlyweds our very best! Degnan is known in daytime for playing Joey Buchanan on “One Life to Live” and Adam Munson on “As the World Turns.” Recently, he appeared as Agent Ike on the canceled CBS series “Limitless.”
Words cannot describe the joy, light, laughter and love that @tomdegnan and I experienced this weekend. From Thursday night's fireside chats to Sunday night's fireworks show and all of the incredible moments in between, this weekend has been the greatest time of our lives. I will always cherish the moment I entered the church and saw the smiling faces of everyone we know and love, before looking down the aisle and seeing the man I always dreamed about before I even knew him. This was all worth the wait and now I understand when people said to never, ever settle. For the 150+ people who were still holding strong at the end of the night and were able to be part of that unbelievable Piano Man finale, I cannot even think of that moment without getting choked up. It was truly an unexpected and emotional moment that will fill my heart and spirit for years to come. We thank everyone who helped to get us to this place and everyone who traveled from near and far to support us and be a part of this new chapter of our lives. #loveislove #wedding #basilicabride #notredame #weddingday #summerwedding #tdegsedegs
