Gotham's Ra's al Ghul Properly Cast with 'Game of Thrones' Alexander Siddig
As Bruce (David Mazouz) pulls the veil off the Court of Owls, he finds the man pulling the strings is the enigmatic and powerfulRa’s al Ghul. With his past shrouded in mystery, Ra’s al Ghul uses cunning and deception to lay waste to his foes. As the leader of an international criminal organization known as the League of Shadows, Ra’s al Ghul will prove himself to be Bruce’s most dangerous adversary yet.
Ra's al Ghul's name in Arabic translates to "The Demon's Head," and up until now, the character hasn't been played by a Middle-Eastern actor in live-action despite his origins in the Arabian Penisula. Liam Neeson (Irish) played the role in Chris Nolan's 'Batman Begins' and Matt Nable (Australian) had a recurring role on CW's 'Arrow.' The English-Sudanese Siddig will be the first to come closest to al Ghul's origin.
