Nikita actress Melinda Clarke has been tapped to play Mia's mother on CBS' Vegas, TV Guide reports.
Clarke will play Lena, a charismatic, shrewd, strong woman who is attracted to even stronger men. Although Mia's father (Michael Wiseman) insisted that Lena died when Mia was a baby, she's alive and well, having been forbidden to see or contact her daughter. Naturally, her arrival at the Savoy will ruffle a few feathers.
'Vegas' airs every Tuesday on CBS.
