Over the summer The Pop Break caught up with Candice Patton, who stars as Iris West, on The CW’s hit series, The Flash. The series has been one of the flagship shows for network’s surge in popularity along with other DC properties like Arrow, and Legends of Tomorrow.
Patton’s character, has been with the series since the pilot. And boy has this character evolved. In the beginning she was introduced to audiences as the daughter of Detective Joe West (Jesse L. Martin), and longtime best friend and girlfriend of Barry Allen (Grant Gustin). Throughout the series, her character has evolved, something she discusses in this interview.
Here’s what Ms. Patton talked to our staff about…
- Iris taking “the bull by the horns” and leading Team Flash.
- Working with Director Kevin Smith, who helmed two Flash episodes last season.
- How Barry’s absence will impact their relationship.
- How she’ll get all those wedding invitations back
- A plot line she’d really like to see for Iris this season.
Season 4 of The Flash returns on October 10 with the episode titled “The Flash Reborn.”
