We have exciting news today for both ‘Smallville‘ fans and fans of ‘Supergirl‘. Supergirl is recasting the role of Alura Zor-El, and they have cast Erica Durance for the role. You may remember Erica Durance spent many seasons playing Lois Lane on the hit CW series, ‘Smallville’. For more on this check out the details below and let us know of you are excited about this casting move AFTER THE JUMP!
Unfortunately Laura Benati, 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]. 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.
