Alex Kingston snags recurring role in Arrow‘ER’ actress cast as Laurel’s mom in Arrow



Here’s an excerpt from the Entertainment Weekly article, which gives some scoop on Kingston’s new role.




 Arrow Casting Scoop from James Hibberd of Inside TV on January 22nd, 2013:

Former ER series regular Alex Kingston is joining The CW’s breakout superhero drama Arrow in a recurring guest star role. The British actress will play Dinah Lance — Laurel’s (Katie Cassidy) mom and Detective Quentin’s (Paul Blackthorne) ex-wife. Later this season Dinah will return to Starling City to make amends with her family that she abandoned years earlier following the tragic death of her daughter aboard Oliver Queen’s (Stephen Amell) yacht.


In addition to her years on ER, Kingston recently earned some serious geek cred in a recurring role on the BBC’s Doctor Who playing River Song — so now Arrow has nabbed both Capt. Jack (John Barrowman) and River from that ‘verse.



Arrow returns to The CW on Wednesday, January 30th, 2013 with episode 1×12, “Vertigo,” at 8:/7: Central.
