NEW YORK, March 23 (UPI) -- Swedish actress Lena Olin reprises her role as Sydney's mother in this season's final episode of "Alias," TV Guide's Ask Ausiello reported Wednesday.
The actress, whose credits include the movies "Chocolat" and "The Incredible Lightness of Being," will appear May 25 in the popular ABC TV show's 90-minute finale, the report said.
Her "Alias" character supposedly was dead when Olin exited the program.
"Alias" creator J.J. Abrams told TV Guide's Michael Ausiello he worked hard to win Olin's return.
"I was hoping all year that we would be able to pull this off, and we managed to, Ábrams said." We're really excited about it."
