NYPD Blue star Charlotte Ross has joined the upcoming season of The CW's Arrow as the mother of fan favorite Felicity Smoak! You might recognize Ross from recent appearances in both Nashville and Glee before being tapped by The CW. The actress will star in at least one episode but may appear in more with her first scenes as the unnamed character airing in late November.
This coming season of Arrow will give us more knowledge of Felicity's past in an arc that the showrunners over at The CW are calling "The secret origin of Felicity Smoak". Marc Guggenhiem teased fans, saying that we will "absolutely get to know her". It is most likely that the majority of Ross' appearances in the show will take place during these flashback based episodes.

After a violent shipwreck, billionaire playboy Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) was missing and presumed dead for five years before being discovered alive on a remote island in the Pacific. He returned home to Starling City, bent on righting the wrongs of his family and fighting injustice. To do this, he creates the persona of the Arrow and allies himself with former military man John Diggle (David Ramsey), computer-science expert Felicity Smoak (Emily Bett Rickards), street brawler Roy Harper (Colton Haynes) and international assassin Sara Lance (Caity Lotz), while keeping his secret from those closest to him including his sister Thea (Willa Holland), who has allied herself with his most deadly enemy. Rivalries and allegiances will shift as Oliver faces his most difficult challenge yet.
