Supergirl Season 3: Erica Durance Takes up Laura Benanti Role as Alura

Erica Durance will be taking up the role of Alura Zor-El on The CW’s Supergirl, as Laura Benanti will be leaving National City. Supergirl executive producer Andrew Kreisberg has expressed his gratitude to Benanti for her time on the show. He said:

“Unfortunately Laura, 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.”
