As “Gotham” Wraps Up Final Season, David Mazouz Writes Farewell Note to Sean Pertwee

For actors, one of the hardest parts of a show ending can be saying goodbye to the other people they have gotten so close to, and in Gotham, David Mazouz and Sean Pertwee may be as close as you can get.  After all, they have been through five seasons together as Bruce and Alfred, and that student-mentor relationship was important on and off-screen.

On their final day of shooting together on the Gotham set, Mazouz posted this letter he wrote to Pertwee.  See what it says below:

Today marks the very last time I will work with this man on Gotham. It’s hard for me to know what to say. Sometimes I feel like Sean knows me better than I know myself. He always knows what I’m thinking and feeling, always making sure I’m ok, which I think is a testament to how close our relationship has been over the last third of my life.

And over those five years, I’ve learned what it means to be a gentleman, professional, and unabashedly talented from this man. I am sad my days with him (on Gotham) have come to an end but I am eternally grateful for my experience with him and happy for the people who will be recipients of his light next. Thanks Sean.

The final season of Gotham premieres Thursday January 3rd, 2019.
