Actor Greyston Holt plays Sophie Moore’s (Meagan Tandy) husband Tyler in the new superhero TV series Batwoman, which debuted on The CW last night.

Holt first appeared in the closing scenes of last night’s episode after Kate Kane (Ruby Rose) as Batwoman rescued Sophie Moore (Meagan Tandy) from Alice (Rachel Skarsten) and the Wonderland Gang. Kate was surprised to learn that Sophie, her ex-girlfriend at the military academy, was married to Tyler.

Kate and Sophie broke up after the military academy discovered they were in a lesbian relationship. Kate was kicked out of the military academy after she refused to go along with the Don’t Ask Don’t Tell Policy, but Sophie chose to stay.

In last night’s episode of Batwoman, Alice, at the head of the Wonderland Gang, kidnapped Sophie after interrupting an event in which Mayor Michael Akins (Chris Shields) was going to shut down the Bat-Signal, after three years of Batman’s absence from Gotham City.

After Alice and her gang kidnapped Sophie,  Kate returned to Gotham City to rescue her. She found the Batcave, and with  Luke Fox’s (Camrus Johnson) help, she assumed the identity of Batwoman. She then confronted Alice, who was holding Sophie hostage.

While Kate and Sophie reunited following the rescue, Tyler (played by Greyston Holt) walked in and Kate was shocked to learn that Sophie was married.
