Quick hits: Linda Park added to Flash TV cast

Category: Flash News — By

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the Flash TV show is adding Linda Park as a recurring role, played by Malese Jow (The Vampire Diaries).

The character is described as a quick-witted reporter for the Central City Picture News. She befriends Iris (Candice Patton) while at work and helps her navigate the fast-paced world of journalism. When she meets Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) at a local bar, the two hit it off. The character will first appear in episode 112.

As others have noted, the character made a brief appearance in the pilot episode on news coverage of the STAR labs particle accelerator, played by a different actress. She would hardly be the first character to be recast or retooled after a show goes from pilot to series.

The episode is very aptly named “Things You Can’t Outrun”, with an interesting villain revived from Starman’s rogues, and some neat twists and Easter Eggs dropped throughout.
