Arrow: Alex Kingston Joins Cast
Alex Kingston is to have a recurring role in new superhero drama Arrow.
Of course to cult TV fans, Kingston is best known as River Song in Doctor Who. She follows hot on the heals of John Barrowman, who also joined Arrow last year.
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.
