First Look at Tom Felton in THE FLASH Season 3 and Details on His Character
Two new photos from The Flash season three have been released, and they offer us our first look at the character that Harry Potter star Tom Felton plays. The photos come from EW, who also reveals that he is playing CSI tech Julian Dorn and gives us some new information about him.
It's explained that Dorn is "a direct result of Flashpoint," and executive producer Todd Helbing says:
"Barry’s had that lab to himself, but now he’s got to share it with this guy, who doesn’t really like him and is kind of prickly."
It's also said that there's going to be a lot of humor made at the expense of the character. Executive producer Andrew Kreisberg says:
“Tom Felton is portraying a character on our show — he’s not portraying Tom Felton. Cisco will continue to make pop culture references. We’re, generally speaking, not afraid to have a little bit of a meta-moment.”
Fenton even hopes that he will get to make a Harry Potter joke in the new season and tells the outlet:
“I’m so excited for the references. I don’t doubt the talent and creativity of the writers. I’ve got a feeling they’ll come up with some real good ones. I hadn’t thought about me saying it — I assumed it would come at me from Cisco — but maybe I should give it to Cisco. Maybe he should misquote something and I could correct him.”
The Flash season three seems like it's going to be a lot of fun. It's pretty cool that Felton landed this role, and I'm looking forward to seeing how his character affects the series. The show is set to premiere on October 4th.
