Another Doctor Who Alumnus Joins the Cast of Arrow!

television-news-and-talkIt looks like Arrow is continuing to grow its “geek cred” with the addition of yet another sci-fi regular, Alex Kingston. Most will probably recognize her from many years in her role on ER, but she also a future companion of the Doctor. She plays the role of River Song on Doctor Who and is considered to be “sort of the Doctor’s wife” in the role. Kingston joins Doctor Who alumnus John Barrowman who plays the role of Malcolm Merlyn. Both are on a growing list of sci-fi/geek show actors and actresses being cast in roles for the show. Alex Kingston will be playing the role of Dinah Lance — Laurel’s (Katie Cassidy) mom and Detective Quentin’s (Paul Blackthorne) ex-wife. In the comics Dinah Lance is the original Black Canary, will she be fulfilling the role in the capacity? We’ll soon find out. (Source: EW)
