Erica Durance (“Smallville”, “Saving Hope”) has been cast in a recurring arc on “Supergirl.” She will be taking over the role of Alura (Supergirl’s Mum!) from Laura Benati
“Supergirl” executive producer Andrew Kreisberg said, “Unfortunately, Laura, who Greg [Berlanti] and I have worked with for years going back to ‘Eli Stone,’ was unable to continue in the role due to work commitments in NY. But we are so blessed that Erica has come aboard to offer her own interpretation of Kara’s mother.
We had tremendous success with a former Lois Lane last season with Teri Hatcher. We know Erica will continue the proud tradition of legacy actors joining our shows and creating new and exciting takes on classic DC characters.”
Durance is well known for her role as Lois Lane on “Smallville.” She also just wrapped production on the television series “Saving Hope.”
We’re excited to see where Erica will take the role Alura in the new season of Supergirl!
Supergirl returns later this year on FOX8
