Alura Zor-El Cast For Supergirl Series

Supergirl’s mom, Alura Zor-El has been cast in the upcoming CBS series from executive producer Greg Berlanti. The role of the Kryptonian noblewoman has gone to Laura Benanti (Nashville). Benanti will be a recurring character offering her daughter Kara Zor-El (Melissa Benoist) wisdom and guidance… how she will do that remains to be seen. In the comics Alura Zor-El survives the destruction of Krypton and ended up in the bottled city of Kandor.

Benanti worked with Berlanti previously on short lived TV series Eli Stone.
