ARROW Enlists DOCTOR WHO Actress To Portray Dinah Lance
Laurel Lance's mother, Dinah Lance, is coming to The CW's Arrow, and the folks have cast yet another Doctor Who star to come on board to the breakout crime drama, which is based off of DC Comics character Green Arrow...
According to Entertainment Weekly, The CW's breakout crime drama, Arrow, has cast Doctor Who and ER actress Alex Kingston to portray "Dinah Lance" on the show.
Kingston will portray Laurel Lance's (Katie Cassidy) mother, who they note "will return to Starling City to make amends with her family that she abandoned years earlier following the tragic death of her daughter." Fans of the show know that Sara Lance was aboard Oliver's yacht, in which she died in a terribly tragic drowning.
In the original DC comics, Kingston's character was the original Black Canary. It's also interesting to note that Kingston will be the second actor from Doctor Who joining the show, as John Barrowman was previously cast as Malcom Merlyn (A.K.A The Dark Archer).
