REIGN’S Adoptive Mother is Cast in ‘Supergirl’
September 29, 2017
There is little over a week left before Supergirl returns to our television screens and already fans are curious to know more about Samantha Arias (Reign).
We learned at San Diego Comic Con, from our interviews with Executive Producers Jessica Queller and Robert Rovner, that the show will give us a deep dive into who Samantha is and we will watch as she succumbs to being the villain of the season.
Today, we can share with you a new piece to that puzzle! Joining the cast as a guest star on the show is Betty Buckley (most recently from M. Night Shyamalan’s Split). Buckley will be playing the part of Samantha Arias’ adoptive mother, Patricia.
She is described as: “Patricia [Arias] is Samantha Arias’ (Odette Annable’s) adoptive mother. Patricia is honest, but stubborn. She and Samantha have been estranged for many years, the result of Samantha getting pregnant as a teenager. Their troubled relationship is made all the more complex by the secrets Patricia holds.”
Fans can look forward to seeing Patricia Arias (Betty Buckley) first appear in episode 307! While it isn’t explicitly said, it could be logically concluded that Samantha’s pregnancy led to her daughter Ruby. If that is true, then fans (us included) have a whole lot of speculation to jump into because that would make Ruby Arias half Kryptonian, and not just Kryptonian, but a genetically altered half Kryptonian! The possibilities of what that could mean are incredible!
