arrow season 3 charlotte ross felicity mom gi 'Arrow' Season 3: 'NYPD Blue's' Charlotte Ross cast as Felicity Smoak's mother

“Arrow” Season 3 has cast Charlotte Ross in the role of Felicity Smoak’s mysterious mother. The “NYPD Blue” actress will appear in at least one episode of the upcoming season, TVGuide.com reports.

Also known for roles on “Glee,” “Nashville” and “Days of Our Lives,” details of Ross’ “Arrow” role are sparse. Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) has previously mentioned that her mother was once a cocktail waitress in Las Vegas. That mom also raised Felicity at least mostly on her own — the girl’s father was not around in the family’s life.

With this guest-starring role, Ross joins previously announced Season 3 guest stars JR Ramirez, Peter Stormare, Devon Aoki, Karl Yune and Brandon Routh. “Arrow” premieres Wednesday, Oct. 8 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on The CW.
