Keiynan Lonsdale has joined the CW superhero drama in the series-regular role of Wally West, this is according to TVLine.
TVLine quotes that
“Lonsdale’s character — who will make his debut in the winter — becomes the speedster known as Kid Flash in the comics lore. In assorted DC Comics iterations, Wally has been both the nephew of Iris West and husband to Linda Park (who was played during Season 1 by Malese Jow).”
Andrew Kreisberg, executive producer of the show has this to say
“Just like when we met [star] Grant [Gustin] for the first time, we instantly knew Keiynan embodied all the heart and courage of a hero, We are so excited to be bringing this much-beloved character onto the show.”
The Flash Season 2 premieres Tuesday, Oct. 6 at 8/7c.
