Betty Buckley, known for roles in everything from The Leftovers to Pretty Little Liars, as well as her role as Grizabella in the famed Broadway show Cats, is about to join the DC Universe.
The Tony winner has joined the cast of Supergirl for its upcoming third season, where she will portray Patricia Arias, the adoptive mother of Odette Annable's Samantha.
According to The CW, the Arias women have been estranged since Sam became a teen mom and "their relationship is made all the more complex by the secrets Patricia holds." Given that Sam is actually Reign, the genetically designed, world-killing weapon we first peeped in May's season finale being sent to Earth from a cabal of hooded Kryptonians before the planet exploded, it's highly possible that one of those secrets the "honest, but stubborn" Patricia is sitting on includes the still-unaware Sam's otherworldly and lethal origins.
Betty Buckley will make her DC TV debut in the seventh episode of the show's third season.
Supergirl returns on Monday, October 9th at 8pm.
