Alex Meneses has landed a mother of a role…
The 56-year-old half-Mexican American actress has joined the cast of The CW’s drama Walker in a recurring role.
Meneses, who has appeared on Jane The Virgin and Why Women Kill, will play Adriana, a successful psychiatrist and published author and mother of Micki Ramirez (Lindsey Morgan), Cordell Walker’s new partner in the Texas Rangers. She’s a strong personality who’s manipulative and very invasive when it comes to her daughter Micki’s life.
Walker, which launched in January, has become The CW’s most-watched series premiere in five years and has been renewed for a second season. It stars Jared Padalecki as Walker, a widower and father of two with his own moral code, as he returns home to Austin after being undercover for two years.
The series, a reimagining of CBS’ long-running 1990s action/crime series Walker, Texas Ranger, hails from Rideback and CBS Studios.
Meneses is coming off feature film The Wall of Mexico and has also appeared in Everybody Loves Raymond, The Goldbergs, CSI and Prison Break.
