According to The Hollywood Reporter, actress Laura Benanti who plays Supergirl’s Mother Alura in Supergirl, will be replaced by Erica Durance in Season 3. Durance will star as a recur role.
“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 New York,” executive producer Andrew Kreisberg said in a statement.
“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.”
Erica Durance TV credits include Lois Lane in ‘Smallville’.
Supergirl is set to return on Monday, October 9 at 8:00 PM on The CW.
