DC is bringing a new group of superheroes to the small screen with Titans, which is slated to debut on DC's upcoming exclusive director-to-consumer streaming service. A number of characters from DC Comics will be adapted for television, and we already knew a number of the actors who will bring them to life. Now, Titans has cast another comic character. Lindsey Gort of The Carrie Diaries is on board to play Police Detective Amy Rohrbach.
While Amy Rohrbach is not exactly the biggest comic character of DC fame, she did have a great deal of significance for a time in a certain comic series. She was a cop based out of Bludhaven when Dick Grayson relocated to fight crime in her city as the masked vigilante known as Nightwing. Dick decided to become a police officer so that he could fight crime from within the system as well as with his work as Nightwing. As a rookie cop, he was partnered with Detective Amy Rohrbach, who was one of the few honorable and non-corrupt officers in the Bludhaven Police Department.
The two weren't partnered up for too long in the grand scheme of DC Comics, but they became strong allies. Although Dick did have to turn in his badge after Amy learned his secret, she protected his secret, and she became a friend to certain vigilantes operating in Bludhaven. She wasn't a vigilante herself and she didn't wear a mask, but she was one of the good guys in a city full of corrupt cops.
Not too much is known about the Titans version of Amy Rohrbach at this point, although TVLine reports that Amy will be the new partner of Dick Grayson, which at least tells us that Titans' Dick Grayson will be with the police as well. We can't say at this point where he's working. We can rule out Gotham City, however, as Dick is trying to get out from Batman's shadow in Titans, and that could never happen in Gotham City. Dick is being played by Brenton Thwaites of Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales. We can bet that Lindsey Gort will share a lot of her screentime with Thwaites.
All things considered, Lindsey Gort is probably best known for her role as the young Samantha Jones on the CW series The Carrie Diaries, which was a prequel of Sex and the City. The show only ran for two seasons from 2013-2014. After The Carrie Diaries got the axe, she landed a role on TV Land's Impastor from 2015-2016. Recently, she appeared as Candy Morningstar in an episode of Lucifer on Fox. It should be fun to see how she operates in a world of superheroes.
Lindsey Gort joins a cast already comprised of Brenton Thwaites as Dick Grayson, Anna Diop as Starfire, Teagan Croft as Raven, and Alan Ritchson and Minka Kelly as the crime-fighting duo Hawk and Dove. We're still waiting to learn who will play Beast Boy, and the odds are that we're in for adaptations of other comic characters as well.
